Week of January 8th: On Monday we will check SS #51 and do #52. On Tuesday we will correct #52 and take the quiz over SS #49-52. I suggest all students study for the quiz. We will also complete another Journal assignment, pasting in material and directions for multiplying and dividing by multiples of ten. By the end of the week we should up to #55 in our Simple Solutions book and will do pages 92-94 in the text.

This week, students will be taking their Mid-Atlantic States test on Tuesday, and the test over the New England and Mid-Atlantic States combined on Wednesday. They will be able to take a practice test for both of these tests in class, but it will be beneficial for them to study at home as well! If they score a 96% or higher on the practice tests, they will not have to take the actual test.
We will continue to work with the different systems in our bodies! We have completed the Circulatory System and will be moving into the Skeletal and Muscular Systems this week. The students seem to love to see everything it takes to make our bodies function!
This week, we will be completely finishing our saint papers and speeches in preparation for our living wax museum! Once the speeches have been written, students will need to practice them at home! They will be given a note card to write their speech on, but I want them to attempt to memorize it and only have their note cards for backup!
Students will continue to dive into their book club and on deck books! They are required to read the pages that have been mapped out on their calendars. If they do not finish their reading during independent reading time, they will be required to read it for homework. We will continue meeting in our book clubs and small groups throughout the week.
