3rd Marking Period Update!
We're already halfway through the school year!  In Literacy during the third marking period, students will be finishing up their comparative literary essays.  For these essays, students read and compared two short stories and came up with a thesis about the stories, then supported the thesis with reasons, text evidence, and their own analysis. Next, students will begin our Argument & Advocacy unit by reading texts on debatable issues and then writing essays to support their opinions on these issues.  First up is the great Chocolate Milk Debate! Should chocolate milk be served in schools? Stay tuned...
In Social Studies, students will learn about the arrival of colonists in the Americas, including how their arrival impacted Native Americans already living in these areas.
