Math: We are currently working our way through our geometry unit. We have been working with circles, lines, angles, triangles, and quadrilaterals. Our Geometry Test will be on Friday, March 17.
Social Studies: Students have started working on applying the 5 Themes of Geography to the Southwest Region of the United States. Our Southwest States and Capitals Quiz is Thursday, March 9. Please practice states and capitals as well as locations of the states at home! Students will also be allowed some time to work on their scrapbooks in class. Ask your child about these fun and creative projects!
Science: We are finishing up our unit on geology. We have learned about different plate boundaries, the types of rock, the rock cycle, weathering and erosion, and fossils. Our Geology Test will be Wednesday, March 15! Thank you for reviewing these concepts at home!
Writing: Students have been hard at work in class creating a persuasive essay on the best place to visit on vacation. Students started with a brain dump to get their minds thinking about all the great places they have been, and are now putting those ideas into a five paragraph essay. Ask your child about this project! We have all been very engaged in our work!
Reading: Students have spent the last couple of weeks reading about and discussing the different text features in nonfiction. There are 5 that we have discussed, including compare and contrast, description, and cause and effect. When reading nonfiction at home, ask your child which text feature was represented in the text, and what key words they used to figure that out!
