Welcome back from Thanksgiving Break! I hope you've enjoyed your time off. Classes will resume Monday, and I have a lot of fun lessons planned for this week! We will be talking about Australia, algebraic equations, fraction computation, the California Gold Rush, and magnetism (just to name a few). At Wednesday's writing workshop, we will begin drafting our responses to the prompts we've been researching. You will have a vocabulary test Friday based on the words I will give you tomorrow. In addition to your follow-up work, please remember to complete your weekly www.tenmarks.com assignment and current event journal response.
The second administration of the MAP assessment will take place this Tuesday and Wednesday. It may be a good idea to have and extra-healthy breakfast each of those mornings so you can ensure your brain is ready to process the questions the best it can.
