I hope you enjoyed the taste of chilly weather over the weekend. Ahhh, our winters : )
- January 25th - Class Photos
- February 2nd - Field Trip to the MIM - Please pay the Field Trip Fee (in the payment portal of the school's website) if you have not done so already. This serves as the permission slip also.
We will finish Robin Hood this week by comparing and contrasting the book with other media. The final assessment will be a written assignment that we will begin on Tuesday and end on Wednesday. The students will be given a graphic organizer and rubric to help facilitate the assignment. On Thursday and Friday, we will learn about the common elements of a fairy tale and introduce The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Please make sure your child has the version of the book that is shown in the Current Literature section in the left margin of this blog.
In math this week, we will expand our knowledge of decimals by introducing the hundredths place. We will be playing some fun games to cement these key place value concepts.
We will review for our quiz about rocks, weathering, and erosion on Tuesday. We will begin our next unit on the cardiovascular system (CVS). We will be able to identify the parts and functions of the CVS including the heart, blood, and blood vessels. We will see what happens to our heart rate when we exercise.
This week in history we will finish our study of African Kingdoms during the Middle Ages. We will focus on the Songhai Empire and the travels of Ibn Battuta. At the end of the week will begin our review for the quiz on Monday 1/29.
Grateful for so many things,
