Weekly Preview: 4/30-5/4, 2012
I can't believe we're into May. Where has this year gone? Here's how we're spending our time together in room 101 this week:
6th GOAL: On Monday, students will be presenting their Oral History assignments. On Wednesday, we'll be starting research for our Westward Expansion unit which will culminate with our trip to historic Nauvoo, Illinois.
7th GOAL: Monday will be students' last day to work on Independent Research Projects. We'll start presenting on Wednesday, and that will take us through the rest of the week.
8th GOAL: Students will continue to work on their documentary films this week. They should be recording scripts, editing video, creating titles and transitions, and finding music this week. Movies need to be finished by May 10.
7th Language Arts: Parts of Speech packets are due Monday. For the rest of the week, students will be splitting into small groups and choosing a part of speech they will teach to the class. They can design this lesson in any way they'd like. In the past we've had raps, game shows, and many other creative lessons to learn the parts of speech. We'll start presenting these lessons on Friday. Spelling words this week focus on the endings: -tial, -cial, -cious, and -tious. Pretest corrections and book page 196 (1-20) are due Wednesday.
