Suess Yourself Day – Friday, March 1, 2019

In celebration of Dr. Seuss’s Birthday, Read Across America, and the celebration of literacy we will dress up as our favorite Dr. Seuss character next Friday.  Dr. Seuss created dozens of memorable characters: the Cat in the Hat, Thing 1 and Thing 2, Sam-I-Am, and the Lorax, to name a few.  Which Dr. Seuss character is your favorite? Suess yourself!  It can be as simple as a wacky hairdo, mismatched clothes, or fun hat.  Be creative, and share your spirit for reading with our Holy Rosary Community!

Mrs. Heuer

On Friday, March 1st, the students will complete our chapter on fractions, decimals, and percents with our Ch. 2 Test.  We are skipping chapters 3 and 4 since they are a review of the 5th grade content we covered in the beginning of the year.  In chapter 5, we will work with integers and the coordinate plane.  The students will start feeling more comfortable with negative numbers as we work with integers.  Remember, students can also continue working on their ALEKS.  It is a great resource to review the concepts we have covered in class and also gain familiarity on concepts we will cover later this year.

Science

Students will learn about natural cycles in an ecosystem. They will create diagrams to show how carbon dioxide, oxygen, nitrogen and water cycle through an ecosystem. Students will take a quiz on lessons 3 & 4 in their texts next Friday. They have completed two study guides to help them prepare.

Social Studies

Tomorrow we will take the Chapter 8, Facing Slavery test. Next week we will move on to Chapter 9, Life in Colonial Williamsburg.

Description: In a writing for understanding activity, students take a “walking tour” of colonial Williamsburg to examine aspects of colonial life, such as government, social life, and religion.

Essential Question: What were key parts of life for Southern colonists in the 1700s? Students will be working in small groups to move to different parts of Williamsburg and do a fun activity for each location.

The test for this Chapter will be on 3/14.

Reading

Students took a Selection Test covering vocabulary and comprehension questions for the story, Dangerous Crossings. The students may make test corrections for additional points and must include at least one idea for a test preparation strategy that they will use to prepare for future tests. Please continue to encourage your children to read for at least 20 min. a day.
