Welcome Parents and Students!

We are in a new grading period!  Second semester has started.

6th Grade ELA:  8:10-9:46

Today we completed the story “You Wouldn’t Want To Be Cleopatra.”  We worked on Lesson #17 pg 47 which we will work on again tomorrow morning, and it will be due at the end of class tomorrow.  It is a tough compare and contrast question comparing three text selections from two stories.   

Homework:   Lesson #13 pg 35, Lesson #14 pg 39/40, and Lesson #17 pg 47 due tomorrow 12/6/19.  Read for 30 min a night.  Book Project is late. 

5th Grade Math/Science/History:  10:33-1:26

Math:  Students worked on CA 5.11 different number forms.  Students also took a lesson #8 quiz.  Most of the class did very well.  Super proud of the hard work they are putting into their work!  Some students also worked on Lesson #8 PG 152-164 in their workbooks.

History:  Students worked on their explorer reports.  This is due December 6th, with due dates along the way.  Those dates are outlined in their notes packet.  A copy of the packet can be found in their digital classroom.

Homework:   Explorer Report and incomplete math work from class.  Study multiplication math facts.

7th Grade Writing Lab:  1:29-2:13

Students are working on an expository writing assignment that takes a look at one of our characters, El Viejo, and his right to die and refuse medical treatments.  Students pick a stance to support El Viejo or not.  There is no right or wrong answer.  I’m looking for students to pick a side and defend it based on their own personal beliefs, thoughts, morals, principals, or ideals.  The big thing is can the student write in a way to show support for their claim using research.
