The Week of January 18, 2016

Take some time this long MLK weekend to think about this special holiday, and why we celebrate the life and times of Martin Luther King Jr.   www.history.com has a great overview of the holiday; you can check it out HERE.  Perhaps you would also like to join in the celebration at one of the activities in Savannah listed HERE.  Happy MLK Jr. Day!

Our math lessons this week will 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 Wednesday and Thursday (This is a departure from our routine because of the holiday on Monday)  There will NOT be a quiz or a google classroom journal requirement this week.  Math tutorial will take place Wednesday after school from 3:15-4:00 for those who normally attend.

Now that you are familiar with the layers of Earth's atmosphere, let's focus on the troposphere and the weather events that happen there!  After your lesson on weather, please use the following choice sheet to guide your research:



You will have two quizzes associate with our work with weather.  Your vocabulary quiz will be Friday, January 22 and the chapter test will take place on the 29.  Please use the following materials to help you prepare for them.







Our field trip to the Mountain Film Festival will take place this Friday. Please sign and return your permission slip by Wednesday.  This is a free trip to attend.

Enjoy your LONG weekend,
Mr. Trent
