Week at a Glance April 18-22

Students will be getting their 50 states study guide on Monday. The final test over the 50 states will be May 20th. There are extra copies of the study guide on Edmodo.

Last Friday the kids had a check point for their websites for the research paper. We spent a significant amount of time analyzing websites for scope, accuracy, authority, and primary source. The kids know how to select a "good" source.

The next item due is their questions for research. They are due on Tuesday. Then, we will be working on researching those questions and summarizing, quoting, and paraphrasing the information on notecards.

Chapter 10 Social Studies test  will be April 25th. We will complete the study guide this week. It is a short test, make sure to use the study guide to prepare.

ISTEP will be long this week. The individual tests are quiet lengthly. PLEASE, PLEASE, attendance is really important this week!
