Week 24

We will start our week off by completing the MAP reading assessment, since we had issues the week before last with connectivity.  This should NOT take our entire day!  Remember, we have discussed using your strategies while remembering that if everyone stays focused and on task that this assessment should take no more than approximately 2 1/2 hours.

This week’s homework is posted up top, as always.  All assignments are due on Friday, 2/24/17.  The math homework is a repeat as many students did not complete the long division properly.  There are detailed instructions on the sheet that I will hand out Monday morning.  These problems should not have a decimal added, or any zeros annexed, but will all have remainders.  Each answer must be checked by multiplying the quotient by the divisor.  If your assignment was completed correctly last week, you will have NO math homework this week.

In science we will continue with oceans (SOL 5.6), and learn about currents, review food webs, complete a review activity in class, as well as a culminating review in Mrs. Griffin’s room on Friday, 2/24/17.

In social studies we will work on westward expansion (SOL USI.8), and color a map.

In math we will begin working with fractions (SOL 5.2).

In reading we will continue to write sentences with the vocabulary words from last week and start working with three new words.  Remember that 2 dojo points will be given to the student with the best illustration and the best sentence for each word.  On Wednesday we will create paper chains in pairs and attach a cause and then an effect to events given to each student.  On Thursday we will read Goldilocks and the Three Bears and attach a cause and effect to the story events.

In writing, we will FINISH our Environmentalist formal writings.  Some students have already finished this!

Don’t forget that your Bill of Rights project is due Tuesday, February 28, 2017.
