It is finally the weekend and a beautiful one at that. Believe it or not the 3rd nine weeks is going to be coming to a close soon. Today we started the last unit for the 3rd nine weeks in math, measurement. Benchmark dates have been set for reading, math, and science. As we wrap up final learning units, our class will begin to review for these subjects, please encourage your student to study at home any vocabulary lists that may come home for math or science. The science EOG is very vocabulary based, so that is what I will have students studying, the science terms to better prepare themselves. This nine weeks we focused on ecosystems, and next nine weeks students will learn about human body systems, then the rest of the time will be devoted to EOG review. My website is up to date with upcoming tests, and benchmarks under the calendar section. Please go check that out! The students have been doing so good with ecosystems, all projects have been graded and are on Powerschool. I will send them home on Monday.
In social studies, we have been looking at geography, studying regions of America. Student's have started with the western region, and will be given a blank map quiz to fill in next Friday 2-24. This is something they have been studying for and we will continue to study for. We plan to make our way through the whole map of America by May. Also in May student's will turn in their final state project. Each student was assigned a state to gather research for and in May will turn in power point and state float. The power point is something they will entirely be doing in the library at school. The research grid filled out is the first thing due on 3-10, many students have already filled out that research sheet. This project will be done in steps, and each time a piece of it is due, I will let you all know. Students have their research grid or have let me hold on to it, when they are not working on it in class. This is something fun that they so far have enjoyed working on. Most of this project will be completed at school.
With the end of the nine weeks coming up I will be sending out a conference online sign up sheet soon, so be on the lookout. As always please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
