The Week of January 19, 2015

I hope you are enjoying your long weekend!  I'm am busy planning another math/science-packed week for you at Ellis!

Our math lessons will involve finding area of squares, rectangles, parallelograms, and triangles.  Check HERE for a great resource for you to use to study this skill.  You will get plenty of hands-on practice finding area this week to get you ready for a quiz on Thursday.  You will have homework to complete Tuesday and Wednesday evening.  While you will have two Compass Learning assignments to complete for Friday, you will NOT have a journal to complete this week.  Those math tutorial members, please be advised that we will have tutorial Tuesday and Thursday this week.

Get ready for some fun weather-related lessons!  Over the next few weeks we will be focusing on the Troposphere and the many types of weather phenomena found there.  We will start out by talking about the water cycle and types of clouds.  We will continue with types of precipitation, weather masses, and fronts.  You will have a vocabulary quiz Friday, and a chapter test next Friday.  To help you prepare, please complete the "Cloudy With a Chance of Learning" choice sheet by next Friday.  Here are the materials you will need for science this week:

Have a nice weekend, and enjoy your Martin Luther King Jr. holiday!

Mr. Trent
