I’m sure everyone enjoyed their week off! It was a wonderful week here in Georgia! The weather was amazing until this weekend. I went to Birmingham for a Spring Festival and couldn’t stay very long because it felt as though Winter had returned. I can’t wait to hear about student’s vacations or stay-cations.
Here is what’s going on this week!
There will be NO HOMEWORK!!!! I want everyone to relax, read, and sleep. Have your student review information on Quizlets but there will be no Reading Journals and no homework all week.
I do ask that students make sure they eat breakfast every morning and go to bed at a good time. Sleep and food are important when it comes to testing.
While there are no Reading Journals students should still read their books and keep up with their AR test which is due Thursday.
During Testing our lunch schedule and enrichment schedule will be different. We will not have enrichment everyday this week.
Lunch will be at 11:50-12:20.
Wednesday STEM. Friday Music.
Put in Calendar:
Tuesday: Milestones ELA Section 1
Wednesday: Milestone ELA Section 2/3 (This is a long day for your student)
Thursday: Milestones Math Section 1
Friday: Milestones Math Section 2
Here is a Milestones Calendar created by the county https://cpb-us-east-1-juc1ugur1qwqqqo4.stackpathdns.com/cobblearning.net/dist/4/3896/files/2018/03/ES-2017-2018-EOG-Testing-Schedule-1xewk5v.pdf
We still have material that needs to be learned this week. However, I do plan on completing a lot of review games throughout the week.
Math: We will be talking about coordinate planes and then reviewing for the milestones. Tomorrow we will play a fractions jeopardy game to review adding, subtracting, dividing, and multiplying fractions.
Social Studies: We have until next week to complete Social Studies standards and so this week we will be discussing the Nixon and Reagan Years. We are also going to be talking about the 1980s and 1990s. I am looking forward to showing the students the first cellphones.
Reading/Writing: Monday we are going to spend our reading time reading independently and reflecting. The kids have learned all the standards and I would like them to read for pleasure and then we will have some time reflecting on what they read. The rest of the week we will be reviewing language arts standards. I am also going to be reading some Historical Fiction picture books that relate to our Social Studies Standards.
Science: Students will be reviewing our science standards in class with games. I would also suggest students to go on Quizlet and play our review games.
