Happy Easter! The week ahead looks to be fun kicking it off with a boat ride. All of the Fireballs will gain a better understanding of what maritime life is like without Napoleon's crew coming after them.  

State Float:  I hope the Fireballs are having a good time putting together their float.Don't wait until the last minute.

ELA: The Fireballs will continue to use IXL at night for 10-15 minutes. It will be part of their Blogger work.

Read Aloud - Sophia's War by Avi. 
  • R.CCR.5. Analyze the structure of texts, including how specific sentences, paragraphs, and larger portions of the text (e.g., a section, chapter, scene, or stanza) relate to each other and the whole.
  • R.CCR.1. Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.

Classical Roots Lesson 15(com and con, -re). Words: committee, communicate, converse, reaction

Wordly Wise: Lesson 5: avalanche, blizzard, challenge, conquer, crevice, foolhardy, and makeshift

Book Club - The students will complete their "Point of View" packets by Thursday. We'll wrap up our book club work on Friday. After that the students will move back into their individual reading.

Master and Commander- We'll finish the movie by Wednesday.

History: We begin Unit 6. What events led to the American Revolution? We'll focus on some major battle during the Revolution. How did other nations helped the Patriots? What role did women play during the Revolution? What was life like in the colonies during the Revolution?

Grammar: This week the students will focus on simple and complex sentences, fragments, run-ons, and nouns. The students will use IXL to help bolster skills.

 
Math: Time to focus on Unit 10: pan-balance problems, algebraic expressions, speed and distance, and rules, tables, and graph.

Science: We will continue to study Matter.
