We are almost there . . .The end of the first full month of school is almost here.

Math__________________________________

This week will start with equivalent fractions and reviewing the US Customary System. We will learn how to make a function table.  Later in the week we will be talking angles and how to use a protractor.  Polygons will also make an appearance along with reviewing what similar and congruent means. Math test on Tuesday, Sept 29

Social Studies_____________________________________

We will be having a test on Ancient Greece Monday.  It will be loaded onto Google Classroom in a Google Form.  The students have all done this last spring so it should go pretty smoothly.  Then we are onto the Ancient Romans.

Literature___________________________________________

We're continuing with The False Prince and should finish the novel within the next two weeks.  At that time, we'll begin a Personal Choice unit:  students will choose their own novel to read for the following three weeks.  More information will be coming about the genre choices and the purpose of the reading. That being said, unit plans may be adjusted should our time of whole-class online learning continue. I'll be sure to keep you posted!  

English/Writing____________________________________

Our focus is Elaboration -- developing our writing not only with sensory details as we have been, but also with ideas, facts and examples, and personal experiences.  This writing technique will benefit the students in all their classes!!!  In fact, this week, we'll also be planning our writing for the next religion journal assignment.

Vocabulary_________________________________________

Unit 1 Set B due Wednesday, 9/30.

Science______________________________________________

This week in 7th grade, we are going to have a test on Tuesday and Wednesday.   I am making it two days and the kids can use their book and notes on the test.  After the test we will start to talk about mitosis and meiosis. The cell project we will make due Oct. 7th now since the kids are virtual for the time being.  If you have already completed the project and it will not last that long please take some pictures and share them with me.  The Leaf Project will be due 11/06/20.  Information can be found on google classroom.  If you have any questions about either project, please let me know.  

PE/Music Mr. Fischer______________________________

5-8 P.E. Frisbee Golf had great weather.  We will continue with group rounds.  Fischer Music started presenting on their favorite artist, genre, and decade.  They have done a really nice job so far.
