I hope all is well. This week starting Monday, April 27th- April 29th, we will be taking the PARCC Assessment. As I stated the last time we took the PARCC, all we really want is for the children to use the knowledge they have and to do their best. I have no doubt they will.
This week we will be working on the following:
We will continue with Unit 9, Coordinate points. We will also explore areas of rectangles.
Homework: Due to PARCC testing, I try to limit homework until after testing is over to ensure the student’s get a good nights rest. We will resume homework after testing.
We are practicing writing poems using figurative language such as metaphors and similes. We are also turning inanimate objects into “real” objects through personification, a genre of poetry. We will also be reading passages from various sources and taking comprehension assessments based on these selections.
Social Studies: We will take the chapter test on The Colonies.
Civics: We are reading “LaCausa,” the story of Cesar Chavez, a migrant worker who started the Farmworker’s union.
Have A Great Week!
