What's Happening This Week:

ELA: We are continuing the read our unit novel "While The World Watched", with a focus on informational text. This week we will compare and contrast literature written by different authors on the same topic. Performance task for Unit 2 will start this week. Students will be creating their own connection courses. I am very excited to see the ideas they come up with.

READ180: Students will deepen their understanding of a concept by finding related synonyms, word families, common phrases, examples, and non-examples. Students will attend our first field trips to Savannah. Students will be taking the Scholastic Reading Inventory at the end of the week. This assessment allows students the opportunity to show their mastery of reading comprehension.

Students will take the SRI on Thursday 10/3/2019 and Friday 10/4/2019 (if needed)

Math: 7th grade math students will continue learning about expressions and equations this week, by recalling and practicing the distributive property. Students will participate in small group activities as well as taking notes. On Wednesday, we will be having out 7th grade filed trip, YAY! Thursday, students will take their last set of notes before a QUIZ on Friday! That's right, a quiz will be on Friday, October 4th. Also, we will begin checking interactive notebooks to ensure our scholars are making the most out of their learning.

Science: Life Science scholars are still working at becoming elite ecologists! We will begin to discuss the difference between Food Webs and Food Chains and engage in a variety of activities that emphasize the importance of ecological relationships between all biotic (living) and abiotic (non-living) factors in Food Webs. This week we will cover the energy pyramid diagram. We will continue to complete INB (interactive notebook) activities and we are checking to make sure all students are staying up to date with their INB. Life Science classes will have a Summative Exam on Tuesday.

Social Studies: We are finishing up our Middle East history unit; Monday, we will review the study guide, Tuesday, we will play some test prep review games, and Thursday is our test! Students will also have some time this week to finish up their choice board activity of either the FunkoPop figures or their BrainPop video.
