LM PHYS ED
The students are doing their homework online each day as well as having access to the student books online. Due to the homework being automatically leveled for your student with examples and multiple tries, the homework scores in IC may appear better than their in class work, quizzes, and tests. There are also weekly assignments being checked in class throughout the week.
You may have noticed a change this trimester with HAKE. We have now moved to HAKE Lessons Monday-Thursday, so please expect homework each of those evenings unless we have a Test. There is a HAKE test every 5th lesson. This week we are starting our newest novel, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave. This will coincide with history and the Civil War. Also in literacy we will be working intensely on theme, poetry, and integrating multiple sources in writing and answering questions.
The War is well on the way. The hope for a quick and peaceful resolution is long past and now it is a matter of who can hold out until the end. Lee and Grant will take center stage as the end of the war approaches.
STEM is a hard act to follow, but we do have a lot of learning left! We are starting our Matter & Energy in Organisms & Ecosystems. Students will be looking at the following questions: How can we gather evidence about energy and matter in all living things? How do plants get and use energy and matter? How do energy and matter move though an ecosystem? How can we use what we know about energy and matter in living systems to solve problems?
Additional School Supplies Needed
Each of the classrooms are experiencing a lack of basic supplies. Please be sure to send your students in with a pack of 24 Ticonderoga pencils. This is necessary for 5th grade students. Please ask your child if they have run low or run out of the other expected supplies. Many students are missing or running low on some of the following: glue sticks, high lighters (4 colors please), markers and or colored pencils.
Thank you and we appreciate your support!
