This week is a big week! We are in the final week of Quarter 3 and we are completing our state testing this week! With that in mind, students will need headphones that work, both for social studies and testing this week. It is also incredibly important that students have fully charged chromebooks, as we use those for testing. We also introduced a new Classcraft challenge yesterday! Students who earn at least 20,000 XP between today (March 12) and May 29 will be eligible to take an afternoon off school and go to Elevate Trampoline Park in Champaign! This is in addition to the regular 6th grade field trip. More information about pricing, conditions, and paperwork for the Classcraft challenge can be found on the flyer your student received yesterday.
Please ask your student if they have headphones/earbuds that work! Thank you! As a reminder, please continue to check in with your student about their chromebook, homework/absent work, Classcraft, and if they have gotten any behavior referrals that need to be signed (or detentions to be served).
In math this week, we are looking at our new state testing (IAR instead of PARCC) and practice playing with the features. There will be no math Wednesday-Friday due to testing.
In social studies, we are finishing our Egypt unit hyperdoc! The hyperdoc and god/goddess worksheet are due this Wednesday (3/13) and will be on quarter three. Students may need to work on this some at home, especially if they struggle to focus at school, leave their chromebook at home, or if they are absent. Students were introduced to the create projects yesterday, which they will work on after turning in their hyperdoc. We will continue to work on social studies the rest of the week.
In spelling, we are finishing our current lists this week. Students should be working on the activities on their tic tac toe boards, which are due this Friday. We will also be taking our tests on Friday.
