Hello to All!
- As I am sure you are aware, report cards have been delayed due to a systems error. They should be out this week!
- Please Note- the STAR Math and STAR reading assessments have been moved to February.
Math students have been filling out their planners daily and are expected to show their parents. This week, students should have at least 3 nights of math homework. Next week there will be a Module 1 test on rates and ratios.
Social Studies: Last week, students finished their research on their "modern day" explorer using a graphic organizer. This week they will take their research and put it together into a "journal" like project called: The Things They Carried. This will be due at the end of the class Friday. They can bring them home during the week to work on them and to show you their progress.
Language Arts: Using the research compiled in this class as well as in Social Studies, students will write a 2-4 page informational essay. The first day of essay writing is today, and all essay writing will be completed by Friday. Several students still owe a Dead Man at Indian Creek summary, as well as a two paragraph written piece on Columbus. These should be finished for homework and turned in before Friday. Students are welcome to stay after today, Wednesday or Thursday if they need assistance.
As always, students are expected to read a minimum of 20 minutes per night for their literacy class. There are still many overdue storyboard projects that need to be completed. Arrangements can be made to stay after school with Miss Baldwin if the project cannot be completed for homework.
