Here is what is happening in Mrs. O’Donnell’s classroom this week…
In Math…we will be reviewing for our chapter 5 test on Monday and taking it on Tuesday and Wednesday. We will be starting Chapter 6 on Thursday. This week we will be learning how to estimate the products of whole numbers and decimals and learn how to multiply whole numbers by decimals.
In Social Studies…my homeroom students will be going to Mrs. Purzycki’s class to start their Unit 2 in Science this week. Their unit will be on different types of energy. I will be welcoming Mrs. Purzycki’s class to learn about the 13 colonies. This week, my students will be learning about the first settlement in America, the differences between life back then and life today, and begin learning about the three regions of the 13 colonies at the end of the week. *Note: On Wednesday 12/14, my homeroom students will not have science as they will be participating in our yearly dentist lesson.
