Curriculum Overview Week of April 16th:

Throughout the year, I would like to share an overview of what to expect at the beginning of each week. I will be updating this website weekly to share what we will be doing in class, as well as upcoming due dates and tests. If at any point in the year you have any questions, ideas or concerns please do not hesitate to e-mail or call me!

Math: This week, we will begin Module 4, the study of geometry. We will be completing lessons 1-4. I highly encourage students to be logging into Zearn at home to reinforce the skills being covered in class.

ELA: We will continue our fourth quarter unit, Mythology. The students and I will be discussing Greek Mythology through a variety of short stories to gear up for our next novel, The Lightning Thief. As we read these stories, we will be discussing character traits and be comparing similar themes.

Writing Workshop: We will begin our practice with narratives this quarter.

Social Studies: We will kick off our final region of the United States, the west! As practiced throughout the year, the students will be responsible for memorizing the states, capitals, abbreviations, and locations of this region. Quiz date TBD.

Science - We will continue studying energy and motion through a variety of experiments and activities!
