Week of October 19
Mark your calendars! Friday, October 30 will be our first publish party! If your child is in Rice's homeroom, the party will start at 8:00 AM. If your child is in Lefler's homeroom, we will start at 1:30 PM.
This week in reading we will be focusing on character traits and themes found in literature. The second hand written letter to me about literature will be due this Friday and next Friday. Hopefully by spreading the two class due dates, I can respond quicker. Lefler letters will be due OCTOBER 23 and RICE letters will be due October 30.
During writing we will focus on completing our "flash draft mysteries." One of the ten drafts must have clear plot and provide evidence of lessons from the first quarter. We will being editing and revising Friday on their favorite mystery.
Geography will focus on chapter 2, thematic maps. You can access the text online, however not all of the material from the text will be taught during class. We will be identifying physical features and focusing on turning natural resources into economy this week. We will complete a study guide in class Friday. TEST October 27.
