Grade 5 Symmetry Art Reminder

11/5/19
Many students have still not handed in their project. It is now overdue. Please bring it in this week!

September 9, 2019 to September 13, 2019

I hope you all had a relaxing weekend and are energized for a full work week! Below, you will find a breakdown of what to expect for the following week:

6th Grade Social Studies: Our focus this week will be on chapters 1 and 2 from the textbook. These two chapters have information in which the students must become familiar with in order to understand the units that will be covered throughout the year. Monday’s homework will be to copy down vocabulary words with their definition along with the students own interpretation of the definition in their notebook. Tuesday through Thursday’s homework will consist of a question on Google Classroom in which students must answer in 5-7 sentences on Google Classroom directly.

6th Grade ELA: This week, we will introduce the novel The Lightning Thief as well as begin chapters one and two. Our focus is going to be on character analysis as well as vocabulary. Students will receive worksheets throughout the week which will be completed during class time. For homework, Monday through Friday, students are to write one sentence using the vocabulary words we covered that day.

7th Grade ELA: This week, we will introduce the novel A Long Walk to Water as well as begin chapters one and two. Our focus is going to be on character analysis as well as vocabulary. Students will receive worksheets throughout the week which will be completed during class time. For homework, Monday through Friday, students are to write one sentence using the vocabulary words we covered that day.

8th Grade ELA: This week, we will introduce the novel To Kill A Mockingbird as well as begin chapters one and two. Our focus is going to be on character analysis as well as vocabulary. Students will receive worksheets throughout the week which will be completed during class time. For homework, Monday through Friday, students are to write one sentence using the vocabulary words we covered that day.

NOTE: ALL STUDENTS MUST COMPLETE A MONTHLY READING LOG. Students should be going home and reading a novel of their choice (grade level and age appropriate) for at least 20-30 minutes a night. Students should also be reviewing their notes at home for about 10-15 minutes every night. This serves as a great refresher for what was covered in class that day as well as keeps them prepared for any pop quizzes IF they were to be assessed.

I am looking forward to a great week!
