ELA - Students will begin each class with a daily learning activity, which reviews and reinforces grammar and writing skills. Students will learn literary terms and doing hands on activity assignments in order to cement the terms in their minds. Students will engage in activities that will help develop their reading comprehension, vocabulary skills, develop inferential learning skills, and apply text lessons to their everyday lives and across curriculum areas. Also, they will be focusing their time on story elements and writing at their individual levels.
Math - Students will begin each class with a Math Minute, which reviews and reinforces basic math skills to increase your student’s math fluency. Immediately after students will complete a daily word problem. Students will spend the year covering a variety of units including: Fractions, Operations with Fractions, Decimals, Operations with Decimals, Rations, Rates, and Unit Rates, Properties, Variables and Expressions, and Formulas.
Science - Students will begin each class by looking up the temperature of a location of the student’s choice. Then, each student will be assigned a job on a rotating basis to determine the mean, median, mode, or range daily. They will record this information on a calendar we will supply them with at the beginning of each month. This year, students will be learning about energy, motion, forces, earth science and astronomy during the upcoming year.
History - Students will learn a regular routine where they will begin with a history fact, related to events that happened in different points in history. They will have an open-quiz on these facts every other Friday. We will begin our journey through history in pre-historic times and will advance through the middle ages to the age of exploration.
