Grammar: During the past week, students worked with making nouns plural and collective nouns. Students are required to complete 30 minutes of Grammar IXL homework weekly. This online work is due on Sunday night by midnight. The students also continued working with D.O.L. each day, helping to further their understanding of the many intricacies found within the English language.
Science: During the past week, students completed the "Spaceship Earth" unit, and took the assessment on Thursday (10/11). They also began creating a Google-slides presentation, using any topic that they've learned about this year in Science. This activity is to allow the students an opportunity to become familiar with the Google-slides concept for use on future Science and Social Studies projects. Students also started working with their next unit: "Chemical Magic."
Writing: The students completed and turned in their "Favorite Seasons" writing assignments on Monday, October 8th. They were all given the opportunity to share their creations with the class. The next writing assignment will be a Fictional Narrative. Each student was given a packet to work with and read through, to help develop ideas/characters. This assignment will continue for several weeks. Math: During the past week, students continued working with long division. They are working with personal whiteboards, in groups of two, and are using a laminated "Long Division" card to help them remember each step. We will continue with long division next week and take the test on Tuesday, October 16th. The study guide for this assessment was handed out on Monday, October 8th. Students are required to complete 30 minutes of Math IXL homework weekly. This online work is due on Sunday night by midnight.
