2TD will be rotating our groups for the final quarter of school beginning on Monday. The students will begin a unit on Ancient Greece by learning about the 12 Olympian Gods and Goddesses of this civilization.
3PA will continue our work on Ancient Egypt this final week before break. The kids will be adding slides to their Google presentations focusing on what daily life was like for people in different parts of Egyptian society.
4PA will be taking PARCC assessments Monday-Thursday during their PA time, so the kids need to be working on their neurological disorder presentations and speeches at home this week. The kids will be presenting their work on Friday.
5PA will spend our week with a poem by Elizabeth Outlaw titled "The Visit" and a short story by Donna Hill titled "Ghost Cat." I will be using a strategy that another PA teacher shared with me called "Text to Text" where kids will be adding their text to the text on large chart paper to make their thinking visible and to compare annotations made by classmates.
