In Math we will be starting with Topic 12-2 (Comparing and Ordering Decimals) and will cover all of the lessons in Topic 12. Next Monday, we will review and then take the Topic 12 test next Tuesday, March 5th.
This will be my last week teaching Mrs. Sarver's class Science until April and thus our homeroom's last week in Social Studies with Mrs. Sarver until April.
We started reading The One and Only Ivan last week, and we are really getting into it. The plot is developing and we are eager to find out what will happen next.
We are starting the mystery genre this week. We'll talk about the characteristics of this genre and solve some ourselves.
We will hopefully finish up prefixes this week. We're having fun coming up with examples of words for each prefix.
We will also begin the Literary Essays and mostly complete them. Last week we spent a lot of time on our kidblogs. If you haven't gotten a chance to check them out, ask your child. Everyone has at least one piece of their writing on their blog. Many have their favorite season paragraph, their mythology piece, their how-to demonstrations, and at least one precept inspired by our read aloud, Wonder. They are really enjoying commenting (positive and specific comments) on each other's work.
This Friday is the last day of the second trimester. Report cards go home on Wednesday, March 13th.
