I hope everyone enjoyed their long 4 day weekend! Back to business for the next 3 days….can you believe this week starts MARKING PERIOD 3!? Where is this year going??
Here is what is happening in Mrs. O’Donnell’s classroom this (short) week…
In Math… we will finish Chapter 8 this week. We will work on word problems on Wednesday, review on Thursday, and take our test on Friday. The objectives that were covered this chapter are greatest common factor, least common multiples, simplifying fractions, comparing fractions, and converting fractions into decimals. Next week, we will learn how to add and subtract fractions.
In Social Studies… this week my homeroom students are finally back with me! We will be learning all about our Government and how it came to be. This week we will analyze the Articles of Confederation. We will have a quiz on the A of C on Friday.
In ELA…we will begin Lesson 14 “A Drop of Water” and continue with our focus skill: Cause and Effect. Students will be given a cause and effect quiz based on a non fiction passage on Thursday. We will also be working on a TDA (separate from the Lesson 14 story) this week. A new story also means new vocab!
In Grammar…No Grammar this Week!
