SOCIAL STUDIES NEWS

This month we are beginning to explore Ancient Greece.  Students will be making connections to our last book read, “The Odyssey”.  Students will also begin reviewing questions from the most recently released NC Social Studies Final Exam.  We will be looking at question format and digging into the standards for extra practice during the next 2 ½ months.

What’s happening in Science class? 

by: Mr. Walker

Science class has been pretty interesting lately.  We have been learning about what makes healthy soil and how plants grow.  Next week students will study the anatomy of plants and will dissect a flower.  

 


 

Math: In math class students are working on multiplying and dividing numbers with decimals.  This skill can be practiced in everyday life by talking to your child about spending money.  Buying gas and groceries is a good way to start. We are also working on adding and subtracting fractions which is everybody’s favorite thing to do.

READING UPDATE

with Mrs. Gaddy

We are currently reading “The Odyssey” and will be moving on to “Blood on the River” on Mar. 2.  This is an exciting book about the settlement at Jamestown, VA. We will be focusing on standard RL 6.2 for this text.  This standard focuses on theme and central idea, as well as summarizing text.

We will also begin EOG review this month and continue through until May.  This will include NC EOG released items with questions and other EOG practice assessment passages.  We do not currently know the date for EOG exams, but we will let you know when we have confirmation.
