In Our Subjects:
Students must complete their final novel this year. We do not have a theme, but rather students can choose from any of the Lit. Circle books from this year. The assignment with this novel is to be completed when they are done reading; students are to either write a summary of the book or a well-written What Happened/My Thinking.
For writing, students are working on a final writing piece. Some students are writing a story while others are doing a research paper. The focus will be on writing in proper sentences and paragraphs, using correct grammar and spelling.
Spelling – we are done
We will be finishing our short unit on Graphing and Probability this week. Students will continue to work on Mental Math as well.
This Thursday is our last scheduled T.U.S.C. for the year. Next week Tuesday, we will be our final T.U.S.C. where students can choose which role they would like to be. Students must let me know the role they would like to do by Friday.
On Friday afternoon I will be taking the students to 7-Eleven to treat them to a Slurpee. (Students are not to bring money.)
We will be having our class party next week Wednesday. I will have students sign up to bring food and will share that in next weeks Newsletter. If there is something specific you would like your child to bring, please let me know by the end of this week.
