We will take Milestones Math tests on Monday and Tuesday of this week. Thank you to those who signed up to send in snacks or bananas.
Friday of this week is our trip to Chattanooga, TN. An information letter came home with students on Friday. Please read over this – we’ve discussed the details with students and will continue to do so this week.
Students should arrive at school at 6:30 AM. Wear your class t-shirt, jeans, shorts (dress code applies), and comfortable tennis shoes. No sandals, flip-flops, slides, etc. You cannot participate in this field trip if you do not wear tennis shoes.
Students SHOULD NOT BRING ANYTHING with them. This includes CELL PHONES or other electronic devices – every student has a chaperone that will be able to contact in the event of an emergency.
We will not be visiting gift-shops, and food is included in the trip. No outside lunches (with the exception of previously documented food allergies). Students will be provided snacks and water throughout the day.
It will be a great day, full of memories! I’ll take lots of pictures to share as well.
Science: We are learning about magnetism and we will finish up this week. Students will work on exit tickets again this week.
Social Studies: We finished up WWII and will test on Wednesday 4/24. I have posted a quizizz (see previous blog post), and students will have their social studies notebooks to study from as well. The Einstein passage and questions are due tomorrow, Monday – 4/22.
Language Arts: We will stay with homerooms on Monday / Tuesday of this week due to the testing schedule. Students will not have ELA homework on Monday of this week. ELA homework will come home with students on Monday, but will include Tuesday – Thursday.
We will write in Bell Ringer Journals, learn 5 new vocabulary words, and work on decades projects. Students should have 2-3 areas of research completed by the end of this week. I will be checking in with students this week as I see each of the classes. Students should also know which person from their decade they would like to research. If you need ideas, please ask for help. Many students chose someone from their research guide, but students may choose any significant individual from the decade. We will begin working on those essays next week. I will provide students with a biographical outline for them to organize their notes / information.
It’s going to be a great week –
