LA – We will finish up the novel next week. Hopefully the students brought home their board games (based on the novel) to work on them. They need to include details from the novel arranged chronologically on the board. The more important details are, well, more important to include! For example, Stanley is at Camp Green lake, he was arrested for stealing a pair of shoes, he is innocent, they dig holes at a camp run by a warden, there are very dangerous reptiles called yellow spotted lizards in the area, Zero and Stanley both run away from camp and they live on onions and dirty water. If it wasn’t in the book, it probably shouldn’t be in the board game. They need dice, a spinner or cards to move their game pieces around the board. There needs to be rules to follow that explains how to play the game and how to win.
We are using class time but I don’t think that will be enough time for most people to do complete a quality game.
MATH – Fraction unit almost over. Test next week. Can your child complete these questions to create equivalent fractions? 2/5 = 8/? 10/12 = 5/?
Can they solve these? What is 3/4 of 24? What is 7/9 of 36?
Mr. H had 56 smarties. He gave 1/7 to Brooks, 2/7 to Sammy and 3/7 to Matthew and he kept the rest. How many smarties did everyone get?
Mr. H =
SOCIALS – Filming commercials for the unit on advertising.
SCIENCE – Simple machines. Next week we build catapults. The students need to bring two cans of pop or two similar size cans (soup, beans etc. but pop cans are just the right size) to use as their base. Then they can keep their catapult. I can provide cans but I re-use them and will need them back.
FRENCH – The Human Body. Check out this website called study stack, to practice the words. Just copy and paste in your browser.
Try to do it in under a minute, then try shuffle and try to get it down to 30 seconds. Also on this site are the timetables from 2 to 12. PLEASE, please practice your timetables! There is nothing better to help you improve in math.
ART – Cartoon art.
