What a crazy weather week! The kids are wanting to wear shorts, when they still need snow boots!! Let's hope spring truly arrives soon!
We have officially completed our class novel study this week. Some students will need to write the test, or finish some poetry early next week. We plan to watch the movie, Tuck Everlasting and students will complete a compare/contrast between the book and the movie.
We will begin a media unit on advertising next week. Students will read about advertising and then do some writing with advertising as well. We are collecting brochures to use during this unit. Thanks to those of you who have sent some in already!
Our science unit on Electricity is wrapping up as well and we should be ready for a unit test soon. I have tentatively scheduled this for next Friday, Apr. 1st. Students will be responsible for completing a proof of study, which we will start in class, but will be finished for homework. They also need to complete their title pages by test day.
Several students are still struggling with multiplication of larger numbers, and this will impact their success when it comes to dividing. We will be working on that in class next week and have a unit test early the following week.
I will send home their book report outline next week and students can then begin reading a novel that has been pre-approved by me.
Have a nice weekend!
