A Peek at Our Week
Language Arts: We began the quarter off by working in our common core workbook. This is our non fiction quarter so we are reading the books "Malala" or "Parallel Journeys." We will end our unit with a writing project for "Malala" and a poster board project for "Parallel Journeys." I assign a book project every quarter. This quarter students must read a non fiction book that I approve. There can not be a movie associated with the book. This is due December 9th and is an at home project, please check your google assignments to make your slide show.
Math: 12/2 We will be covering ratios and decimal division this week. There is a Unit 4 test on friday.
Science Week of 12/2 Students will be reviewing molecules and compounds with a lego activity at the beginning of this week. They will also research more common molecular compounds that they use in their everyday lives. There will be a quiz over molecules and compounds on FRIDAY. The unit test will be sometime next week. Study guides will come home this week!!
Social Studies: (11/18 - 11/22) We are begining a unit on Chronology. Students are learning how to read a timeline, calculate years on a timelines between two different eras, and identify the difference between a regular timeline and a multiple-tiered time line. We will review last weeks skills and then practice creating multiple-tiered timelines throughout the rest of this week.
