Week of 2/26/18 - 3/2/18

** We are happy to have Ms. Nora Lenburg as a student teacher in our room!!!   We are lucky to have another professional to learn with and excited for the new teaching experiences!


** Wednesday:  4th Grade Musical

** Thursday:  6th grade Pennies for Patients Assembly 

Math:  Students will continue with their study of Topic 8: Integers.  We will explore, learn, and practice skills in lessons 8-3: Absolute Value and 8-4: Integers and the Coordinate Plane this week.  Students will go through the online lessons, practice in class, and receive homework on the skills.

*We also begin or end our day with a Bell Ringer.  These are little exercises that touch on basic, review, or sometime new math concepts.  Usually this practice has nothing to do with the current topic we are working on, but is good to keep sharp on various math skills and spiraling activities that help with different parts of math.  Some the activities we will do are: Minute Math, PARRCC practice, multiplication/division practice, prodigy, IXL, reflex math, and others.   

Big 6:  We are taking a break on Big 6 Research Paper while Mrs. Liescke checks notecards.

Science:  We will go back to Chapter 15 in lesson 2 this week.  We will explore how gravity affects objects including the oceans' tides.  We will also begin Lesson 3: How do you Describe Motion?  Students will learn about frame of reference, speed, velocity, and acceleration.
