 Writing with Ms. McNeil (planner/agenda book says "Language Arts")

*This week, we will write our creative journal entry on Monday and share it.  On Tuesday, students will work with their DEUILI group to complete their language mechanics "warm-up", and they will develop their first "passage based on-demand" prompt. On Wednesday, students will take their Latin root test on the roots ambi, aqua, aud, and bene, and then continue working on their  on-demand prompt.  Students will complete their narrative warm-up on Thursday and then finish writing their article.  We will sing Shake and Learn on Friday to review the parts of speech and the four types of sentences.  We are continuously learning about revising and editing skills, while using resources to improve spelling and vocabulary.    

*Work ethic grades are earned by the level of completion, neatness, effort, and correctness.  If a student does not receive a 100 on a work ethic assignment, he/she is encouraged to read the comments  that I write on the paper, complete the assignment as directed, and turn the assignment back in to be regraded.  Journals and writings are assessed on the amount of critical and creative thinking, the details and feelings included, and the use of effective vocabulary, transitions, sentence structure, grammar, mechanics, and spelling.  

*This year in writing we focus on letters, articles, and narratives.  We will improve our vocabulary and focus on writing complete, interesting sentences.  I will be encouraging students to use their "voice" in their writing, while including as much detail, feeling, and evidence as possible to back up their opinion or main idea.

Reading with Mrs. Schlimm
Coming soon!

Math with Mrs. Heinrichs

This week we will be learning to write decimals in expanded form and how to compare decimal numbers. 

Science with Mrs. Angel

In Science, students will be doing test corrections today and Tuesday. They are due Wednesday. We will begin our Space unit on Wednesday. 

Social Studies with Mr. Parmley
This week in social studies we’ll continue learning about Native Americans prior to Columbus.  Specifically we’ll look into how they used their natural resources to meet their needs.  The students will be doing an independent research project on Google Slides to present in class on a tribe of their choosing.  This project currently does not have a due date yet but we hope to begin by late this week.  Here is the site we’ll be gathering information from Native-Languages.org.  We’ll also have a quiz this Friday over the first page of our Native American key term definitions.
