Week of February 4th, 2019

Creating the Earth’s Crust in Science.

Welcome Back – Weather last week cut our week’s studies short.  This week we will continue learning much of what we were learning last week.


Black History Month – Come Celebrate Black History Month at Ray on February 13, 2019 from 5PM–7PM.  You can view the classroom freedom quilt our class is creating (remember all projects are due by February 11th).  A catered dinner from MacArthur’s will be served. There will be a battle of the Grandmas Dessert competition. The Chicago Children’s Choir will perform at 6pm. There will be also be a Poetry Slam which Ray students are invited to perform in.  If you are interested in reading or presenting a poem on the topic of black history, please submit them to Keiana Barrett (keianabarrett@gmail.com) by February 8th.


Math – This week students will continue working in Unit 6, which focuses on adding three or more numbers, multi-digit subtraction, and beginning multiplication.  This week, students will continue learning how to subtract multi-digit numbers. Students will also learn about multiplication and arrays. Students can also continue their independent learning at home by visiting mobymax.com.  Our school is listed as Ray elem, and students know their online usernames and passwords.


Language Arts – We are once again studying fictional literature and we are now focusing on character studies.  Our reading skill this week is inferring characters’ feelings. Students can also continue independent reading practice at home on Headsprout.com.  The class username is mmwebb1. Students know their individual passwords once on the class website.


Social Studies – Students have received directions on their freedom quilt project.  Each student will be completing a quilt square about an African American of their choice.  Directions for this project are also on my blog. Quilt squares are due at school by Monday, February 11th, but may be turned in early as well.  This week students will continue our African American history unit. Students will continue learning about Harriet Tubman and the underground railroad.  


Science – This week students will continue our new Science unit – Earth Movements.  This week students will continue learning about rocks that provide clues about Earth’s past.
