The Weeks of November 23 & 30, 2015

I'm on my way to Costa Rica for the holiday!  You will be left in the care of Mr. Robert while I am away, and I am expecting an exemplary behavior report when I return.

You have a short week coming up!  On Monday and Tuesday, please complete your "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Float" to raise awareness of World Toilet Day.  Remember to use the following rubric to earn the maximum amount of points possible.  You can keep your finished float on top of your cubby.  Your write-up can remain in your travel folder with your rubric for me to review when I return.  I look forward to seeing how creative you can be with this assignment!

After Thanksgiving break we will be continuing our work with solving equations in math.  Since we've already talked about adding and subtracting, we will move on to multiplying and dividing.  You will have homework due Wednesday and Thursday.  You will NOT have a quiz in math this week.  Please complete two Compass Learning choices by Friday.  Feel free to check out this resource for some extra practice with the skill:

Our science studies will involve water found on our Earth.  We will not only focus on oceans, but also other salty and fresh bodies of water.  You will have a vocabulary quiz on the following words Friday, December 1.

We will have a few lesson throughout the week all about Earth's water.  The concepts I will cover are include on this study guide:

Earth's Water Notes 

Over the next two weeks, please use the following choice sheet to guide your research.  Three choices from the sheet are due Friday, December 11.  You will also have a test on Earth's Water on the 11th.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving break!  I am very thankful to work at Charles Ellis and get to spend my day with such a fun group of students and colleagues.

I'll see you in December,
Mr. Trent
