Reading: Biography book - Due 4/4
- ISAT tests has started. Our first test is this Friday from 1 to 3.
- Find a 200+ page biography of someone by Wednesday
Welcome back from spring break. We hope you had a relaxing week. We are excited to get back to learning and working in the classroom. With that being said, we only have 8 weeks of school left.
ISAT testing starts this week. Students have their first test in science this Friday from 1 to 3. We ask that you do your best to refrain from pulling your child out of school during the test times. It is crucial that your child is present and completes all tests. We also want to push that a test is just that. We believe your child is more than a test score. We believe your child has passions, talents, and goals that are beyond any test score they will receive. We encourage strong participation during the ISAT, but we know that your child will always be more than whatever score they recieve.
In math, we started our review of decimals and place value. The students have a worksheet they must have completed by tomorrow morning.
In social studies, we are continuing with the Revolutionary War. We will be finishing this up this week. Students will have a test at the end of the unit.
In science, we did a review of the movements of the Earth, and we will continue with the rock cycle tomorrow. Again, students will have a test at the end of this unit.
In reading, we have started a biography unit. Students will need to find a 200+ page biography of a person of their choice. They need to have their books approved by Wednesday. Students are encouraged to go to the city library and use their time at school to go to the school library. Students will have 2 weeks from Wednesday to have their book completed. Students will have a final project that will be due. The due date is TBD.
In writing, students worked in groups to comprise a persuasion argument for a given statement. Students were tasked to work together to find facts and research that supported the given argument. They will present in their groups tomorrow.
Finally, we would like to leave you with a quote today from former American basketball player and head coach at the University of California at Los Angeles, John Wooden, “Success is never final, failure is never fatal. It's courage that counts.”
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!
