Week of January 14th-January 18th

This week in writing students are reading their non-fiction sources and beginning to take notes on their 20th Century research projects. The goal in class is to focus the work and provide students with tools they can use when tackling common research reading and writing challenges. In math we are finishing the last few lessons in Module 3 on adding and subtracting mixed number fractions. In science, students will take a quiz at the end of the week covering the big ideas of Chapter 7 on the solar system. PLEASE REMIND YOUR STUDENTS TO RETURN THEIR LIBRARY BOOKS BY THURSDAY.
