Math: Assemble Mosaic Due - March 5
Social Studies: Begin sketching map on poster board
Science: 4 structural OR behavioral adaptations for animal
Reading: 3 sentences about tasks to be done in 6th grade
- Library Fundraiser - February 1st - March 2nd
This morning, we reviewed the area of circles and triangles. We worked on our mosaics for about 15 minutes after our review. Tomorrow, students will be spending most of their time assembling mosaics after we have a quiz about the area of triangles and circles.
For social studies, we are expecting students to be ready to begin drawing their large maps on poster boards. The only way students will be able to get a poster board is to have all their states, sites, and roads on a small map with labels. We will continue working on these until the project is completed.
In science, we reviewed expectations for the animal adaptations project. With all the questions, we did not get much time to work, but we were able to alleviate a lot of confusion. We are expecting that the students have at least 4 behavioral OR 4 structural adaptations for their animal by tomorrow.
Today, we wanted students to send their emails. After that was finished, we expected them to be able to have 3 sentences explaining what they will need to do in 6th grade to begin the road toward achieving their goals.
Students wrote individual cinquain poems in class today about seasons. The poems were to be written in class and turned in.
As always, if students use their time wisely in class, they should have little to nothing to take home. However, this is not the case for many students. We encourage you to go through their assignment with them. We have started writing in agendas at the end of the day. Students should have the assignments and due dates written in their agendas. Each student was given an agenda at the beginning of the school year. If they have lost it, then they need to figure out how to keep track of the assignments in class. A notebook will work just as well if kept organized.
Finally, we would like to leave you with a quote today from Greek Philosopher, Zeno of Citium, “We have two ears and one mouth, so we should listen more than we say.”
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
IN THIS CLASS, IT IS NOT ABOUT WHAT WE KNOW, IT IS ABOUT WHAT WE DO WITH WHAT WE KNOW!
