We’ve completed our second week of school!
Social Studies (Blocks 1, 2, & 5)
We continued our introduction into social studies and geography! Students took a geography pre-test and we used their scores to determine what tiered assignment they would be completing. We worked hard with compass roses, scales, keys, geography features & vocabulary! In blocks 1 & 2, students took a quiz over class expectations, continents, and oceans.
*If you need help with binder organization, come see me!
HW: Continue/finish your tiered assignments!
Reading (Blocks 3 & 6)
We introduced a few reading strategies this week including main idea, supporting details, and context clues! These skills require practice – something we will continue all year! If you are having trouble grasping a concept, see me so we can continue practicing together. In block 3, we visited the media center. Students learned their way around the media center and technology.
HW: Practice, practice, practice the reading strategies we covered this week!
