MMC Homework Guide
Weeks of February 25th-March 6th
All work is due March 6th.
We have a teacher cadet in our room until April. She is doing a wonderful job! Eve will be joining us on every “A” day of the high school schedule. She will be working with students in a variety of settings, including one-on-one. Because of this, we will not need classroom volunteers on a regular basis. After your amazing support of the Friendship Tea, you could probably use a little break! :0)
Our next Fun Friday will be March 27th. This will be our “Egg Drop Day”. The project will be explained next week in the science portion of our Homework Guide. A specific time for the event will be forthcoming.
Spelling will resume with a test on the list of words that we missed because of snow and the tea party. Group one will study all 20 words. Group two will study the first 10 words.
Language: Identify the correct word choice to make the sentence read appropriately.
Math: Complete the activities with standard measurements.
Find the items on the list around your house. Measure them with a ruler and bring your data to school for us to collectively create a chart. If you do not have one of the household items, just skip that item.
Science: Complete each activity.
How does a cell relate to your school?
Read the cell paragraph and answer the questions.
Match the vocabulary and the definitions.
Complete the information about the following Southwest states: Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.
Writing: Practice your cursive writing with letters “Cc through Ff”.
Reading: Over the next few weeks, we will be exploring stories told in “first person” and “third person”. This is also called “point of view”. Read the excerpts from novels and identify the point of view.
Read the paragraphs and examine what happens when voices change.
Have a great week!
Week of February 9th
There will be no need for classroom volunteers for this week. However, if you would like to assist with setting up for the Poetry Tea, contact Catina Anderson. She will be meeting parents on Thursday to organize table and chairs at the Quaker Meeting House. Another opportunity for volunteering this week is through supply donations. With 70 attendees, there is much to prepare. Let Catina know by Thursday what you can provide off the list that was previously sent. I will purchase items on Thursday that were not chosen from the list.
Reminder… your guest for the Friendship Tea should meet us at the Quaker Meeting House on Friday, February 13th at 1:00 p.m. Also, remember to come to school in clothes appropriate for the event. An email was sent regarding specifics about this event regarding food items, assisting, etc. If you did not receive the email, please contact me and I will forward you a copy.
Students may bring in Valentine’s cards on Friday if they wish to exchange cards. They may do this in the morning as our Poetry/Friendship Tea will constitute as our “party”.
Spelling List: Group One will study all 20 words. Group two will study the first 10 words. Your test will be on Feb. 6th.
Shorter than a dash, a hyphen might be considered word “glue.” It will join two words to make a compound word, such as one-way street. It may also connect a prefix with a root word to create a new one, such as post-war. A hyphen also signals a split word at the end of a line.
Complete the following activities that incorporate hyphens.
Math: Complete the activity on conversion of meters and centimeters.
Science: Complete the activity titled, “Do the Research”. Research the three questions using your textbook, printed resources, and electronic online resources.
Writing: Inferences- Complete the two activities to practice this skill.
Reading: Read the poem about President Lincoln. Complete the questions. If you need more room to answer thoroughly, write on the back of the paper.
Social Studies: Complete the article and questions about this Midwestern national park.
If you have any questions about this week’s homework, email me. Have a great week!
