Second Week of School & Relay for Life Event

Posted on

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!

Relay for Life

Our first fundraising event is coming up soon – August 25! Wear TIE DYE and donate $1 to support Relay for Life!

First Week of School

It has been a FANTASTIC first week of school! Hope you have a relaxing and rejuvenating weekend!

Social Studies: This week we went over classroom expectations, the class syllabus, and completed a few activities “about about me”! Don’t forget your homework this weekend!
Clements (Block 1&2): Identifying oceans and continents worksheet
Bitler (Block 5): “Facebook” about me

Reading: This week, we reviewed the syllabus and classroom expectations. We also completed 5 rotation stations and took a reading strategies pre-test. No homework, other than completing your “family surveys” and other incomplete stations.
