Weekly News Report

The past week, we started chapter 14 in our math textbooks. Students are performing very well. As of reading, we finished up ch. 9 of “Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief.”

(Percy is offered a quest to retrieve Zeus’s lightning bolt.) On the lines of Social Studies, students had to hand in a essay about how the Nile River shaped ancient Egypt. (Hopefully, fingers crossed,everyone did well.)Finally, a former School#2 student with Autism made an announcement of how grateful he was that this school had some kind of Autism Awareness program. I’m sorry, there were way more news, but I forgot. That is all the news for this week, another one will be heading your way shortly. Have a great day.

This past week we learned about a new reading strategy called "Genre Reformation." Students were challenged to make a mini project on an article we created a song in class. Students were to sing their song they created themselves to the tune of "Brown Bear." (Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ek7j3huAApc). On Wednesday and Tuesday, students did not come to school, due to the inclement weather (snow). On Thursday, we had a math test on topic 12, which was on ratios (hopefully everyone did exceptionally well!). On Thursday, students were set home with test packets to show to their parents and have them sign and look at their past test. We will soon be starting on our new novel, "Percy Jackson and the Lightning Theif," which will hopefully be a good read. Hopefully everyone will enjoy their St. Patrick's Day today!

We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year~~ During the last week of 2016, students read some more chapters of Bud, Not Buddy and took a comprehension quiz on chapters 1~4. Hope everyone got an A+! As of math, we finished Topic 7 (Adding and Subtracting Fractions and Mixed Numbers) and took both a vocabulary quiz and a math test. Finally, on Friday, we worked hard in the morning to fill up the marble jar and succeeded! We assure you that we did not cheat and everything was 100% us. Well, maybe.. Anyways, Ms. Mitchell did the Mannequin Challenge with us THREE times, and did the now popular dance, "Juju On Dat Beat." Along with our fabulous Secret Santa presents, she sent us home with a delicious dip. Hope everyone enjoyed their Winter Break and had a nice Christmas and New Year filled with joy and luck!!

Last week we had a topic 5.1 to 5.4; hopefully we all did good, and in Social Studies we had a project about the the Pyramids. In reading we finished the book Number The Stars. Another thing we did in reading was make a plot mountain. We all had amazing ideas like making a roller coaster. The last thing that happened is that the marking period ended. I think that we all did a good job and that students who had a hard time should study harder.

In one week we could learn so much, especially with an amazing teacher like Ms. Mitchell! For Science, we reviewed reradiate energy and learned about density. We also did the Density Investigations where we had 4 different colored liquids and we had to layer them in a tube so that they don't mix.
In math, we got through lessons 3.8 to 3.10. On Thursday we reviewed for our test on Friday. Hope everyone did well!
For reading, we were practicing for our Part 1 test with sign posts and our Part 2 racer response for Lob's Girl. Wednesday was super fun when we did KAHOOTIT to study. We used our chromebooks to answer questions about sign posts, tone, mood, etc.
For writing, worked on color coding argumentative essays and then, we got our first novel, Number the Stars. We are going to read that, and then do Literature reading circle.
This week was busy, but we had fun. Good Luck 6M!!

On our third week of school, we covered many subjects and learned many things. On Monday, we wrote down how to transition from one subject to another quietly in the Morning Meeting notebook. On Tuesday, we took the Social Studies test - bad. On Wednesday, our class worked on "Said is Dead", where we replaced the word "said." In On Thursday, we tried to prove that air had mass. We took some balloons, filled them up with air, and then balanced them on a scale. The larger balloon (filled with more air) weighed more than the balloon filled with less air because air has mass. Sadly, I don't know what will happen on Friday - IT IS THE FUTURE!

Last week we got snowed in on Monday. I bet all the students were very very happy. Although the parents on the other hand, let's just not talk about it. On Thursday, we watched the "We Are The World" in music class. On Friday we had an assembly about Thomas Paine, where a man performed using a Limberjack and a board.

Last week was a lot of fun! Even though rehearsals for the winter concert cut learning time short, we still managed to have time for important things, like tests! But all those rehearsals paid off when we amazed the audience at our winter concert. Also, the orchestra and band played! At the end of the week, we had more time to do what we came to school to do - learn! I'm sure everyone did a great job! And with the Holidays right around the corner, all that learning will pay off when winter break begins, since we need it for all the learning we have done. See all of you in 2016! yeslaugh

The week was great! I bet that everyone earned TONS of Class Dojo Points. Although, that's just a guess from a fellow classmate. This week we learned to solve problems using organized lists. We also started drafting our First Person Point Of View/Perspective Fiction story. We will all have to write the story as if we were a crayon, and we were either picked to draw pictures many times, or never. In the story, we will also have to include a theme or an inspiring lesson, Good thing we have our awesome parents as our role models!! Overall, This week was amazing, and I know for a fact that we'll have the most fun we've EVER had this school year. Lets all just hope for the best and an exciting year! laughheart
