Quarter 4 Week 9

Language Arts: We continue Little House this week by reading Ch. 23-25. Spelling will be normal with ten words per day. Jimmy Jet and his TV Set will be recited the last Wednesday of the school year. For writing, we are revising and editing our Planet Essays.

Math:  This week we will continue our weight unit.  On Monday there will be a quiz on grams and kilograms.  On Tuesday and Wednesday we will explore pounds and ounces and take a short quiz on Wednesday aftermath groups.  On Thursday we will do a cumulative review before our Singapore Math test on Friday which is a paper assessment the network uses to gauge mastery of the curriculum.

Science:  To wrap up our Astronomy Unit we are going to be learning about Mae Jemison, the first African-American woman in space. We will be reading her biography and writing an essay on why she is a good role model!

History: We will be doing an in-class colony project this week! The students will each choose one of the 13 colonies, research it, write a paragraph and fun facts about it, put together a poster, then present it next week. This is all being done in class!
