The Week of January 26, 2015

This week marks us making it 1/12 of a revolution around our beautiful sun!  Let's celebrate this milestone together by having a fun and productive week at Ellis!

Our math lessons will again focus on finding area.  We will take our work to the next level by combining polygons to create composite figures and then find their areas.  Below are the slides I will use when teaching this lesson.  Use it to review the process when practicing the skill.


Kindly complete two Compass Learning activities by Friday. In addition, you will need to submit two math homework assignments on Tuesday and Wednesday.  A quiz on finding area of composites will be administered Thursday.  Math tutorial will take place Tuesday and Thursday after school from 3:15-4:00.

You will have plenty of work time this week to continue your research associated with weather.  Use your "Cloudy With a Change of Learning" choice sheet to guide your studies.  Please have your four choices completed and ready for my review by Friday.  You will also have a test on weather Friday.  Use your study guide to help you prepare for it.

Last week we used the water cycle dice to create a personal journey through the cycle.  This week, you will share your journey as part of your weekly journaling activity.  Please complete the journal on Google Classroom by Friday.

Water Cycle Dice

Don't forget that this Friday is a dress down day for $1.00.  All proceeds will be donated to Dollars for Disasters.  By participating you are practicing our recent grace/courtesy focus of charity!

See you Monday morning,
Mr. Trent
