Happy Valentine's Day week! This week, please continue to check in with your student about their chromebook (Is it charged?!?), homework/absent work (Are they missing anything?!?), and Classcraft (Have they fallen in battle?!?). Since this week is Valentine's Day, we will be having a small party on Thursday during interventions. Your student should be getting information from their homeroom teacher. As a reminder, students do not need to bring anything, but if they want to bring cards/candy, they must bring some for every student in their homeroom. Thanks! This week is also a Too Good for Drugs day in math, so their will not be any regular math work on Wednesday. Because of a teacher's institute and President's Day, there is also no school for students on Friday (2/15) and Monday (2/18).
In math this week we are reviewing absolute value and then beginning our work with four quadrant coordinate grids. Homework this week will be on Tuesday (absolute value worksheet).
In social studies, we are finishing our work in ancient Egypt, with a focus on the different kingdoms in Egypt and some of the major achievements of the pharaohs (lesson 8). We will also be talking about mummies this week! Your student should be keeping up with the notes in their notebook and should make up any necessary notes if they are absent.
In spelling, we are finishing our lists this week. Tic tac toe boards are due on Tuesday, and we will be taking our tests on Tuesday. We will wait on new lists until next week.
