There is no school for students on Tuesday, November 8 since many schools are polling places.
A peek at our week:
Math: Wow! For 2 weeks in a row I have been wowed by the math scores on the unit tests! The class average right now is a 94.5%, there are still a few students who need to finish and they will be able to on Monday morning. The test this week was just on the fifth grade SOL, next week math instruction will focus on the sixth grade level skill. There will be a sixth grade quiz on Friday.
Reading: We have finished up our focus on plot. Next week we will focus on main idea. There will be a wordly wise test on Friday.
Science: We are starting our study of Geology. Your child will be learning about the layers of the earth, rocks, and fossils. I'm looking forward to many hands on simulations within this unit.
