The Week of April 8, 2013

Welcome back!  I hope you enjoyed every drop of your Spring Break!  I'm sure you are refreshed, recharged, and ready to get back to work at Ellis.

In math, we will be reviewing all the different types of numbers we've explored this year.  Here is a list of everything we will talk about:



You will have some classwork and homework throughout the week that will prepare you for a quiz on Thursday.  You will also need to complete your Compass Learning choice for Friday.

In science, we will continue our exploration of outer space.  Over the next two weeks, you will complete a research paper based upon the objects in our solar system.  Be sure to follow this rubric to get full credit for your work.  You will NOT have a test on this information.  Your essay will serve as your grade.  It will be due Friday, April 19.



Here is a Prezi and PowerPoint I will share to inspire your research.




In addition to this, please study the following words for a vocabulary test this Friday (April 12).



There are a number of other items to keep in mind this week:

1.  Parent/Teacher conferences will be taking place.  Please let me know ASAP if you forget your scheduled time or if you need to reschedule.
2.  The Book Fair will be happening in the media center!  Please see Ms. Rebecca if you have any questions.
3.  This Friday will be a dress down day for $1.00.  All money raised will help support the programs at Oatland Island.

I'm looking forward to see you tomorrow and hearing all about your time off!

Mr. Trent
