Welcome back everyone. I hope you had a relaxing and fun break.
This week we are beginning our study of Ratios in Topic 10. We will also be doing some preparation for upcoming PARCC testing over the next few weeks.
In Block 5 math we will be taking a deeper look at Ratios and Graphing Ratios in Topic 12.
This week the students learned of the horrible camp living conditions that soldiers on both sides faced during the first two years of the Civil War. Next week, the western theater of the Civil War…the raise of Grant and Sherman.
Happy spring! This week students acted out scenes from Twelfth Night. My William Shakespeare action figure even made an appearance. Additionally, we watched part of the Kenneth Branagh directed depiction.
We also fit in some time to visit the LRTC to learn how to use the green screen app. Mrs. Simenson led students in a lesson. It will be one more tool for the students’ toolbox when they are working on filming projects in their various classes.
When we return in April, we will be finishing Twelfth Night, writing and memorizing poetry, and writing a new creative narrative.
Have a beautiful spring break, families!
