Students will write their Monday journal entry on the topic of their choice and share them.  We will finish our poetry books this week (10 poems in a bound book).  Students will write an informative on-demand article on Tuesday and Wednesday.   

Spelling words
No spelling this week!

The students all received a study guide on Friday at the end of the day for Wednesday’s unit test. Here is a link that covers all of the vocabulary and the moon phases from this unit: https://quizlet.com/185935311/space-vocabulary-planet-facts-moon-phase-cycle-quizlet-flash-cards/ . Between the study guide and the quizlet, your student should have plenty to study to prepare for the test.

Social Studies

In social studies this week we are continuing our Geography unit with a quiz Tuesday over a study guide that went home last Friday.  It should have 3 pieces of paper stapled.  1. Blank world map, 2. Map with answers, 3. Example questions of places to find.  There quiz will be their ability to find and label continents and oceans.  They will also need to locate places based on latitude and longitude coordinates. 

This week we will be learning how to use the partial quotients strategy to divide multi-digit whole numbers.

We will have a test over our figurative language and poetry unit on Tuesday, December 18th. Students have been given a study guide that they can complete for extra credit to be added to their test grade. I have also created a Quizlet study link with terms that students will need to know for the test.
