We have started our unit on measurement and making conversions and comparisons in the metric and customary systems.  Students have added vocabulary notes to the math journals.  They should be studying the measurements and conversions as we continue to add information to the journals.  There is a lot of memorization which goes with this unit.  Please encourage them to study the conversion rates at home to help them be prepared for class.

This week we will be working with making conversions and comparisons with the customary system of measurement.  The conversion rates can be seen below.  There will be a customary conversion and comparison quiz on Thursday, February 7.  Next week we will be making conversions and comparisons using the metric system.

We are working on a unit on Tone and Mood in fiction literature this week.  Students are working to identify the tone of the author and the mood of a book or passage based on text evidence and how they feel while reading.

Students are working to finish reading their chosen biography for the 3rd quarter book report project.  The students should finish reading the book by Monday, February 11 and take an AR test.  Students have been asked to take notes on their book as they read to help with the written report we will begin in class on Monday, February 11.  The guidelines for the written report to help with note-taking can be seen here – Biography Informational Report Guidelines-20vb3qj

We will be writing the report in class.  The project will be completed at home.  Students should be prepared to present their project on Thursday, March 7.  The guidelines for the project can be seen here – Book Report bottle person-1cdgjt6
