# Week of 5/10/21 - 5/14/21

** All activities and assignments are tentative and projected. **

My Perspectives: We will work through the rest of "I Was a Skinny Tomboy" text this week.  We will look at theme in the Analyze Craft & Structure skill and we will review figurative language in the Word Study.  We will then compare this text with our last read, "from Bad Boy".  Students will then take their test over the text on Friday.

We will continue to read our Holocaust book, "Number the Stars", when we have time in class.

Independent Reading Texts:  Students should be done reading their independent novel and working on their slideshow and presentation.

Diagramming: We will finish up practicing lesson 18 this week and then review lessons 16-18.  Students will take a quiz over it on Wednesday.

Wordly Wise:   We will start our last lesson this week - 16.  We will discuss each word and students will work through their word maps.

** How to study for a Digits math test - The test will consist of questions from prior homework assignments.  You can go back online and review the questions from past assignments.  Students should also review the questions in their math notebook (Got-It boxes and Close & Check questions).  A few days before the test there will be review "homework" online (not taken for a grade).

* In my class I have the students reach 100% fluency with the Reflex program (0-12 multiplication & division).  Then they are allowed to practice with Prodigy.  It is a Common-Core skilled based program.  I will be using the Aimsweb reports to individualize the practice on Prodigy in areas which they scored lowest on Aims.

Social Studies:  We will continue with lesson 32 on the geography and early development of Rome.  We will look at early engineering, sporting events, architecture, writing, art and religion in this lesson.
