Math (Mrs. H):
We will be continuing our study of equations next week. The students have been showing clear steps in isolating their variable. We have talked about the steps to find the value of the variable. The students will apply these steps to addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems. We will also work with equations with fractional/mixed number coefficients. Our chapter test will be at the end of next week after two full days of review.
Students will learn what makes up the solar system. They will discover how models of the solar system have changed. They will compare the planets and how objects in the solar system affect Earth.
This week we have been working on spelling words from other languages and students have started on a biography paper. Students will be able to choose any person in history or living who is an inspiration to them. Every student has an informational sheet explaining exactly what needs to be on the paper, if they choose to work on it over the weekend. I let them know not to worry about it though, as we will have class time next week to dive into it. The paper will be due Monday, April 23rd. Have a great weekend!
We have begun Ch. 11, To Declare Independence or Not. We will be studying three famous Loyalists and three famous Patriots. Students will be working in groups to prepare for a debate between these two sides! The debate will be on 4/27. The test will be on 4/30 (5A) and 5/1 (5B) Remember to practice your States and Capitals the test will be in early June!
