MATH*****Unit 4 TEST NOV. 21ST!!!!!!!!!
We are currently working on material in Unit 4.
In this unit, students will develop division concepts and strategies. The unit begins by reviewing basic division facts and the partial-quotients method which then will be extended to include division of a decimal by a whole number. Students will then practice solving division number stories and interpreting the remainder.

Social Studies-
***Unit Test Dec. 20!!!
We are continuing our study of Unit 3: Colonization and Settlement.
**In this unit students examine the causes and consequences of European settlement in North America during the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. Throughout the unit, students use primary and secondary sources to examine how Europeans adapted to life in North America. Students begin the unit by exploring the reasons for European colonization and identifying the push and pull factors that caused people to migrate to the New World. Students next examine a variety of early settlements such as Roanoke, New Amsterdam, Jamestown, and Plymouth. In doing so, students explore how the reasons for migration and the physical geography of the New World influenced patterns of early colonial settlements and their development. Students explore the three distinct colonial regions: New England, Middle, and Southern colonies. They investigate significant developments in each colonial region, focusing on political institutions and economic activities. For example, in studying the growth political institutions, students explore the Mayflower Compact, colonial representative assemblies, the establishment of town meetings, and growth of royal government. Emphasis is also placed on the economic development of each region, including the establishment of staple-crop agricultural economies in the south and the growth of manufacturing and small farms in New England. Students also consider how regional economic differences influenced the use of slave labor in different colonial regions. In exploring the relationships between the European settlers and American Indians, students compare how the British and French differed in their interactions with indigenous peoples. In considering the Dutch settlements in New Netherlands, Quaker settlement in Pennsylvania, and the subsequent English takeover of the Middle colonies, students analyze immigration patterns that led to ethnic diversity. Students also assess the role of religion when exploring each colonial region. Throughout the unit, students gather and evaluate evidence to answer the question: Why did different colonial regions develop in North America?
**This week we will work on slideshows with the topic of the early English settlements of Roanoke, Jamestown, and Plymouth. These will be presented to the class on Nov. 21st.

Writing– Students continue conferring with their teacher regarding adjustment of their goals and projects. Stamina and independence continue to be emphasized as students strengthen their literacy skills. Students will use the writing process to construct compare/contrast pieces.

Reading-
*Fiction-We will continue a genre study of historical fiction while we also continue to develop our Daily 5 routine. We are working on identifying character traits with supporting evidence from the text.

*Non-fiction- We will begin working on the skill of identifying the central/main idea in a non-fiction piece.

Grammar – We will be doing a review of the different parts of speech.

Spelling – Please see Spelling City for the current spelling list and activities.

Math> TEST 10/31
We are currently working on material in Unit 3.
In this unit, students will examine properties of basic plane figures and the use of tools of geometry. They will explore the geometric properties of polygons, and side and angle relationships in regular tessellations. This unit will also review measuring and naming angles.
**We have reviewed addition, subtraction and multiplication so far. Please make sure your student has a reliable method for accurately solving these types of problems.

Social Studies- TEST 11/2
We will continue our study of Unit 2: Three Worlds Meet

**In this unit students study early American History with a focus on the period prior to 1585. Starting with the art of historical thinking, students review the questions historians ask in examining the past. After they reconsider the tools historians use (primary and secondary sources, artifacts), they explore their textbook as a type of secondary source. In doing so, students examine text structures, text features, and the role of informational text in learning about the past. This unit takes a separate examination of life in America, Africa, and Europe in order to set the stage for the convergence of these three worlds in America.

Writing– We will be writing personal narratives from pre-writing to publishing over the next two weeks.

Reading-
*Fiction-We will continue a genre study of historical fiction while we also continue to develop our Daily 5 routine.

*Non-fiction- We will begin working on the skill of identifying the central/main idea in a non-fiction piece.

Grammar – We will be doing a review of the different parts of speech.

Spelling – Please see Spelling City for the current spelling list and activities.
