Students needed to have all questions answered for their cities and cities for their road map. Students who did not finish this assignment must finish before they can more onto the next step. Students who have completed this assignment can move on to drawing a sketch of the United States including only the states they have chosen for their road trip. Students must also show all interstates and highways that are needed to get to their sites.
For science, we finished presentations for adaptations. Tomorrow, we will be begin looking more closely into other organisms and their adaptations. Next week, students will begin working on their animals for the project.
In reading, we spent a majority of time showing students how to search for information regarding higher learning institutions. We have noticed that students have been having some trouble navigating those websites, so we wanted to address that in order to eventually speed up the process.
In writing, we reviewed couplets and quatrains in poetry. Students were tasked to write 2 poems. They need to write a 3 stanza couplet and a 3 stanza quatrain. They chose their own topic, but both poems had to be about the same thing.
Overall, if students are using their time wisely in class and working during work time, they should have very little to do outside of class. However, this is not the case for many of our students. We ask that you remind your child the importance of using work time in class and focusing on getting work done here so they don’t have to take it home. As the year starts to come to an end, students will be tasked with more responsibilities.
Finally, we would like to leave you with a quote today from American author, Og Mandino, “Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.”
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!
