Week of January 8, 2018

  • A reminder to sign and return report cards this week.
  • Congratulations to Lulu and Max M. (AM block) and Halle J. and Brandon (PM block) who participated in the school spelling bee. They all did a great job!
  • Reading - We will focus on cause and effect this week. It is important for students to understand that the cause is why something happens and the effect is what happens. A variety of links to practice exercises can be found on this page: Cause and Effect Practice
  • Language Arts - Students will review subject-verb agreement. Students need to be able to find errors in sentences related to subject-verb agreement. This will be tested as part of the STAAR writing test. Students can practice by playing battleship at Subject-Verb Agreement Battleship
  • Social Studies - Students will read about battles of the Texas Revolution. They will complete a study guide to summarize the information.
