Students Are Learning
Math: We will begin relating fractions to division, and learn how to add and subtract fractions with uncommon denominators. Students will be learning strategies to find the least common multiple and the greatest common factor to help them add and subtract decimals. New resources have been added to the blog.
Science: Mrs. Resudek’s homeroom will complete a two-week unit on Physical and Chemical changes. The students will work on several experiments to help them determine the differences between a physical change and a chemical change.
Social Studies: Mr. Julian’s homeroom will continue a two-week unit on the Civil War.
Language: Students will learn how to place a comma after the words yes and no; after a direct address, and to offset questions (yes, I want pizza! No, Derrick, I didn’t want pizza! You did want pizza, didn’t you?)
Reading: Students will be learning about text structure.
Writing: Students will be continuing informational writing; they will also be drafting constructed and extended written responses comparing two reading passages.
~ Students will go home with daily math homework. If they choose, they can take home extension math homework as well. Extension math homework is optional, and will be rewarded with Class Dojo points.
~New vocab words will go home on Monday for Mr. Julian’s Homeroom students. I am changing the dates we test on the vocab words from Fridays to Mondays, to give the students two extra days to study the words.
~The blog www.jcjulian2.weebly.com has been updated with homework, vocab words, lesson plans, and subject resources.
Thanks, and have a great week!
