Week of September 14 – 18

MONDAY – We Reviewed the Learning Target for the unit we began last week. TIL for LatLong

Students continued to work on their flip book project. Due on Wednesday, September 16th.

Students were also informed at this time that ANY quiz, test, or project in Social Studies can be redone for a better grade. A student just needs to conference with the teacher first.

Students received their first study guide for the year. While being able to name the 50 states is a fifth grade standard, we will “review” the names of the states before we start to learn the names of countries around the world. The quiz is on Friday, Sept. 18th. Students should study 10 minutes a night for homework.
