Week of January 20th

January 19, 2015

January 20, 2015

Parents,

While this is the slowest time of the year in terms of the activities that occur during and after school, it will be one of the busiest times of the year in the classroom as we close out the second half of the year and try to ensure we have done all we can to prepare your child for middle school.  We will also start to look at the new format of our computer based state standardized tests that are replacing the paper pencil tests we have taken in previous years.  I’ve looked at a few of the examples and they are interesting to say the least.  As testing gets closer we will try to set a date to allow you to see the method of state assessments your child will take this year.

Math

This week in math the students will form angles of a given measure; describe right angles; draw & measure angles; and graph coordinates on a plane.

Science

In science this week the students will classify matter based on its properties.

Social Studies

The students will continue the study of Westward Expansion in social studies.  They are learning about the experiences those traveling west faced and how the movement shaped the United States.
