We will be using Discovering Our Past for Social Studies. We will be using FOSS kits for science along with supplemental materials.
Science: We are starting the year off with a unit on water. This includes matter, properties, atoms and elements, universal solvents, water and earth, economy, and conservation.
Social Studies: We are currenlty learning about geography. Students have been learning how to read different types of maps and are finishing up a student created book about the continents. The book is due Tuesday. Please ask your child to show you their books. They are filled with interesting facts about the continents.
Homework: Students should be reading 70 pages a week.

When you are absent, it is your responsibility to ask for assignments.
If you would like to retake a test or rewrite an essay, you must let me know within 2 days of receiving your grade. We will then make a plan on how we can work together to make sure you are given every opportunity to show me your best work.
STUDENTS MUST HAVE A COMPLETED STUDY GUIDE TO RETAKE A COMPREHENSION TEST, AND NOTECARDS TO RETAKE A VOCABULARY QUIZ.
I am here to help you, so please always feel free to ask me any questions or come to me with any concerns.
I do expect all of my students to follow the school rules as outlined in the District Handbook. We will go over these rules the first day of school.
