Week of 5/1/2017 - CAASPP testing in Core
Writing: We are beginning our unit on argument writing! Students will learn and use information about ancient Greece to write argument essays.
Reading: Students are pairing up to learn all about one Greek god or goddess. They will put together a project that includes: retelling of a myth, bio-poem and a paper doll to showcase their knowledge of this god or goddess!
Social Studies: Students are working hard on learning about the political and social structure of their assigned ancient civilization!
Word Work/Super Sentences: None this week due to CAASPP
Membean: (No Membean this week due to CAASPP) The students are practicing their vocabulary words 10-15 minutes every day in class and will have a quiz on Friday. We are also working hard to recognize the words studied during Membean time in other places in our lives - T.V. shows, books, movies, conversations, etc. in order to see how they are used in various settings!
NoRedInk: (None this week due to CAASPP) We are starting to practice our grammar skills using NoRedInk. This week's focus are the different parts of speech and being able to identify them in a sentence.
Genius Hour: The students are working hard on researching their various Genius Hour topics! We are practicing checking websites to make sure we are only using reliable and safe sources.
Please remember to read 30 minutes every day and to log your reading! Any assignments not completed in class will become homework.
Welcome to Room 81
I am so excited to begin the 2016-2017 school year on Tuesday, August 23rd! I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of my students and learning about what makes him/her unique. I also look forward to meeting parents at Back to School Night on Thursday, August 25th. We are going to have a fantastic year in Room 81!
Please note that the students should have an independent reading book to bring to school by Thursday, August 25th.
On this site you will be able to access your homework, grades and upcoming assignments. I recommend you use your Core Planner (provided in class) as a resource for assignments as well.
