SCHOOL NEWS

January 22 – 26 BRING YOUR GAME TO FITNESS WEEK!  Room 26 has red t-shirts.  If you have several red t-shirts (any type) – send in one or two so that we have extra on hand for students that forget to wear RED.  Plan on having all of the vegetables at home so that your child can eat the colors of the rainbow each day. 

CURRICULUM

Math.
Mid-Module 4 Quiz to take place on Wednesday, January 17th.  There was a complete review on lessons 1 - 8 on both Thursday and Friday last week.  Students are comfortable with angles and ready for this quiz. 

This week's Eureka Math:
Topic C.  Decompose 360° .  Straight line is 180° .  Students combine two adjacent angles to form a line.  Students continue to create and understand supplementary angles and complementary angles.  

In Topic D students learn symmetry.  Symmetry leads to working with triangles and its precise definition.  Students learn isosceles, equilateral and scalene triangles and explore the definitions of quadrilaterals.  Students learn to classify them through their measurement.  

Language Arts. 
Last week we read and held discussions about Martin Luther King, Jr.  Discussions included racial equality and  vocabulary connected with honoring him.  

This week we return to core literature and begin working on a unit called, "Extreme Settings."  The unit includes short stories and poems along with the book, Hatchet by Gary Paulsen.

Earth Science continues on Wednesday and Thursday with Mrs. Kearns.  Not sure at this point, but there might be a quiz on Thursday.  Mrs. Kearns will inform students on Wednesday. 

Social Studies.  Mexican rule changes life in California.  

Health.  Students are working on individual slide shows and a WeVideo about a specific health issue of their choice.
