We have been off to an amazing start in Science class and believe it or not, our first unit assessment is just around the corner! We will be finishing up our last topics on Bio-Flow by Monday of next week. I will be dedicating two classes to review the material we have covered so far this year. The students should be expecting their assessment by the third rotation of next week (Thursday/Friday).
On top of in class review, I will be opening my classroom before school on Wednesday and Thursday morning (anytime after 7:15 am) for any students who would like to come in for a study group or extra help.
In the meantime, if there are any questions/concerns please don't hesitate to contact me!
In writing, the students are continuing to write their sci-fi stories according to Asimov's criteria. Both peer and self edits are helping the revising and editing process of this assignment. What's going on with grammar? We are currently learning about participles and gerunds! Ask your child about the Tripple Grammar Slammer each writing class. Your child is sure to impress you with what he or she is doing class.
