Content Info For The Week

  • ELA (Gordon): This week we will finish our book "A Long Walk To Water" and prepare for our Unit test Monday December 9th. As we finish up our novel we will be reading informational text about the different tribes in Sudan and focusing on citing evidence to support our inferences. Wednesday and Thursday we will participate in a simulation of what it is like to walk for water in Africa.
  • Read 180 (Hester & Miller): Students will be reading an article and learning how to use their own schema to draw conclusions, inferences, about what the text does not explicitly state. Then, students will be taking the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI) test to show growth in their Lexile. Lastly, students will focus on key vocabulary for this until to prepare for their Interim Assessment next week --Monday & Tuesday!
  • Math (Allmond, Fulton, Lothridge): Students will begin learning about percentages and how percentages are used in our everyday lives. Students will participate in a real world activity during our 2 hour long class period and will play a math scavenger hunt on Friday. There will be lots of fun in math coming back from the break!
  • Science (Aldred & Tedder): We are starting to wrap up our Cell Biology Unit. Students we be completing various activities including finalizing their lab reports from our Elite Osmosis Lab on Cell Membrane as well as focusing on important topics like Photosynthesis. Study guides will be given out in class on Wednesday and Thursday and will be reviewed together on Friday. Our Unit Test is planned for the following week on Tuesday December 10, 2019.
  • Social Studies (Lewis & Waddell): We are starting a new unit and a new region this week! We are moving on from the Middle East to Southeast Asia and will focus on geography first. This unit has quite a bit of physical features for students to learn and will concentrate on the countries of China, India, Japan, Vietnam, North Korea, and South Korea. All notes and study materials can be found on Google Classroom.
