What we are learning this week

Math

On Monday, students reviewed through a math bingo game and some questions on the iknowit website. We will be taking our chapter 11 test this week and then moving into chapter 12. We will continue with measurment, but moving on to the metric units. We will be begin with length and then capacity and mass will follow. 

 

Please utilize the iknowit.com as well as the prodigygame website to help students practice measurement. 

 
ELA

With SC Ready test right around the corner, we will be taking the time this week to review different skills we have noticed students struggle with. Inferencing, summarizing, and character traits are the main one's I see students struggle with across the board. We will also continue working on science standards during reading. This week we will focus on how the rotation of earth helps bring about changes in seasons, day and night, as well as shadows. 

In writing students will be working a variety of different skills to help prepare for the testing that will take place next week.

 
PBL

Our new PBL unit will focus on the Civil War. This will be our last (official)  PBL project for the school year. The POL date is set for May 3rd at 2PM. Please see the PBL tab for the rubric and the information that was given to students in class as well. 

 

Students are very excited about their projects and cannot wait to share what they have learned.
