Week of 2/17
Reading: Students can synthesize the elements of a story and then retell.
Writing: Students can use examples to highlight (show rather than tell) the ideas they are writing about. Students can use a mini-story to make their example come alive.
Math: We will begin our geometry unit by learning about polygons such as triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and octagons. Students will learn vocabulary terms such as side, angle, right angle, parallel lines, vertex, vertices, horizontal, vertical, and two-dimensional.
Social Studies: Students will continue exploring mountains, deserts, plains, and wetlands.
Science: Students will create a brochure about the rapid changes of earthquakes, landslides, or volcanoes.
