It’s the first week of March! This month holds a lot of excitement: St. Patrick’s Day, Spring Break, and our 6th grade camping trip!
This week our lessons will focus on reconstruction after the Civil War, American politics in the second half of the 20th century, and continued research of Australia. Math lessons will involve working with perimeter. In addition, our novel studies will include discussion about figurative language.
Monday is vocabulary quiz day based upon the words your received last Monday. Reminder: 6th graders will have a map quiz instead, and will need to identify lists places on a map of Australia.
Because it is a short week (no school on Friday!!!), our weekly word study quiz will take place Thursday, March 7. This will be a “non-sorting” review-of-previous-word list since you have one less day to prepare.
Swirl group: wound, crowd, awesome, trauma, avoid, decoy, barge, scorn, assure, burn
Star group: moisture, voyager, season, increase, toothache, raccoon, soldier, suppose, brightly, describe
Arrow group: athlete, humanity, column, muscular, altercation, decomposition, abduction, illustration, abomination, custodian
Have a wonderful weekend,
