Howdy Y’All,

Week October 15-19, 2018

Congratulations to all my students on a job well done for their hard work on “Creating Their Own Culture Presentation.”  I really enjoyed the imagination and creativity each student brought to their new found “Culture.”

Here’s what’s happening this week:

  • Our PYP 2nd unit is How the World Works-an inquiry into the natural world and its laws; the interaction between the natural world (physical and biological) and human societies. 
  • Writing-our students will be continuing opinion writing and argumentation. Students will learn to use graphic organizers to plan and write five paragraph essays independently. We will start slow with a guided essay about a topic we all know. Next, students will be given creative control and develop their own ideas with well thought out reasons and details to support them. 
  • Math- our students will be continuing about the Metric Unit Conversions in addition and subtraction word problems involving metric length, mass and capacity.
  • Reading-our students will be planning for a research project, cooperative learning research teams to organize and plan their journey. Also, tackling tricky vocabulary through reading, note-taking and conversation.

Thanks for your continued support and cooperation.  All the best…

Ms. Ramos
