Mrs. Stanley’s Class
This week we are beginning multi-digit division using the traditional algorithm, testing our skills for reading fiction, and continuing our study of the Turn of the Century in social studies.
Homework: There won’t be any puzzles this week, but you must read at least 20 minutes and complete your reading log. I also recommend studying your vocabulary words and using this time to read your social studies articles, complete book club assignments, or correct any assignments in your Shakespeare which you did not receive a passing grade.
We did not test on Friday due to IOWA testing. The kids communicated to me that they didn’t feel we had gone over the words enough because our classes were cut short. So, they have the same words for this week!
Your words for this work are: bisect, dissect, insect, intersection, section, sectional, sector, transect, trisect, vivisection
There will be no “homework” for the words this week, but please continue to study and do the quizlet activity. I want them to spend the extra time at home completing any book club work or correcting/finishing work in their Shakespeare.
- Our new social studies curriculum is comprised of a newspaper type text weekly. This week we will be reading “Week 2.” We will read these articles in class and take notes on them. However, there will be a quiz on Friday over the articles and I recommend discussing them at home. You can access this resource online by logging on to clever.cobb The username is their firstname.lastn[email protected] and the password is the same password they use to log into a computer at school. Here you can access both the social studies and science texts.
- The bumper sticker was due last Friday. I will still accept it until this Friday, but can’t accept it after that.
- Science Extra Credit is due before the kids leave for break. I will not accept it after that.
- There will not be a new text for their Shakespeare this week. Students will have this week to catch up and correct any previous work for a higher grade.
- We will review Constructive and Destructive forces on Monday and test Tuesday.
- Don’t forget that book club meetings happen once per week. Students will be graded on their preparedness and participation. They are writing their assignments in their agendas. Please check up on their progress periodically.
