Week at a Glance April 4-8th
We will begin our math unit on measurement this week. I have IXL lessons for the kids to practice these skills at home.
The Western States study guide will go home tomorrow. Test is April 15th. Then the 50 states study guide will come home. Test will be in the middle of May. There are a lot of state games on the internet. I have some posted on this blog.
Our Human Body system research paper will begin tomorrow. The main thing to focus on if you are helping your child at home is to ask:
What does the body system do?
How does it function in the body?
What types of diseases could happen in the body system?
There is a button on this blog that will help with guidelines.
We will begin by talking about what websites are dependable , questions to be answered, and paraphrasing information.
Social Studies: The Constitution, The Bill of Rights, and the Three Branches of Government. Please make sure that your child has a notebook to take notes and complete and interactive journal. Most kids already have a Social Studies Notebook.
The kids are really excited about Literature Circles:
We have been going over procedures to make it a successful journey.
Reminder: The Challenger Field Trip is on Friday, please make sure your child has a sack lunch.
