January 8th Updates

Boy are we back! Today we were using Google My Maps to highlight 5 important places in Pennsylvania for people to see when touring. It was the class’s first exposure to it. They did great!

Reminders for this week. We are back to our usual schedule.

Spelling quiz Friday

Math chapter 7 test tomorrow – today’s review showed we are ready

Sketch of their created continent due tomorrow, written piece due and good copy of their continent (whole completed project) due the 16th. They have a rubric that details what should be on both. Children can show me the rough draft of their written portion by Friday. I had set benchmark due dates to help the class learn how to chunk a bigger assignment. The point is complete a little at a time.

This is what we have been learning:

Math – finishing patterns and beginning fractions

Reading – text features and text structures in non-fiction reading

Writing – TDA evidence and analysis

Grammar – adjectives

Social Studies – landforms of PA and its’ regions

Upcoming dates

January 18 and 21st there is no school for the children.
