Classroom Update

Jan 21 - Feb 1


Reading: In Unit four we are revisiting narrative texts.  We are learning about story elements, specifically plot. We worked on identifying themes in texts and compared and contrasted themes across texts.

Writing: We are continuing to write a fairy tale.  We brainstormed common elements of fairy tales and came up with multiple ideas for a story.  The students chose one idea and developed their story through a graphic organizer. The students will continue to develop and revise their writing.

Math: The unit 3 assessment and unit 4 quick quiz 1 are in the student’s math binders.  Students should be taking these binders home to complete their homework. We have been working on two-digit by two-digit multiplication and have expanded to multi-digit multiplication with decimals.

S.S./Sci: Mixtures and Solutions is our current science unit.  The students created their own experiment procedure for finding the saturation point of citric acid.  We took a quiz on separating mixtures that has been graded and sent home. Next, we are moving on to concentration.
