As we start quarter four we will focus on reading and understanding poetry. We will also review many of the skills that we studied towards the beginning of the year.
Historical fiction book projects and presentations are due Thursday, 3/22. Remember that you must share your project and be able to explain the major plot elements in your text.
In Math this week, we will finish our unit on the addition and subtraction of fractions with like and unlike common denominators. We will begin to model and study fraction multiplication.
Math Club will meet this Wednesday until 3:15. Our last Math Club meeting will be on April 11th. Thank you very much for allowing your child to be a part of this extracurricular activity!
This week in Science we will wrap up our light unit, and move on to Newton's Laws.
We have a small checkpoint quiz on light scheduled for tomorrow, and then we will be exploring force, mass, and inertia.
We are also still continuously working to review and prepare for our state test, which is scheduled for the end of April.
This week, students will continue to study European Explorers. We will start the week off with the Spanish explorers that had an impact on the Western Hemisphere. For each explorer, students will learn their motives and accomplishments. Throughout the unit, our focus will remain on the lasting effects that European exploration had on the cultural practices and products of the Western Hemisphere.
