A Peek at Our Week
Language Arts: The Reading AIR test is over and the students worked very hard! We will also begin our last book of the year, "Tangerine." The fourth quarter book project will be the students choice, fiction or nonfiction. I will focus on presentation skills for the last book project which is due May 10th. All students will present.
Math: Welcome back!!!! The first couple weeks of school we will be reviewing concepts from last year and use them to build on new curriculum throughout the year.
Science Week of 5/15
This week, students will learn about the last level of organization: body systems. Students will become the teachers!! Groups will work to research information about their assigned body system to make a presentation to teach the rest of the class.
Social Studies Week of 1/7/19 - 1/11/19
Welcome back! I hope everyone enjoyed their break. I have updated progress book and have notified the students of their missing assignments. They have until Friday, 1/11/19 to turn those assignments in to me. This week we are examining different type of sources (SS-Standard: Describes perspectives on a topic through historic and contemporary sources). We will also take a few days to begin testing students to see who will qualify for a chance to participate in our first Geography Bee here at CIS. Students will be taking the written Geography Bee Preliminary test on Wednesday. We will practice for the Geo Bee by running a mock Bee in class on Thursday. This will give students who do not do well on the written exam a chance to still qualify.
