Students will begin the next part of the animal research project this week.  They will each choose 2 from the following:

An Animal Acrostic Poem

Animal Research Project

Each student has chosen an animal in Language Arts class- with Mrs. Gage.

They will read about, research and take notes on their animal.

Then in Science, we will apply that information to diagrams, summaries, drawing etc.  More information will be given as we approach each part of the project. 


Students will be building notebooks like their own personal textbook.

The Math notebook will have definitions, examples of problems, classwork and homework.

The Science notebook has vocabulary, key points and notes from each lesson.  

Notebooks will be used to review material for testing.

If your child is absent, they will need to copy missed notebook entries during morning homeroom.  It is their responsibility to make up work they have missed.

Notebook/participation grades are given every week or two.

Notebook grades are based on completion of all required entries/work, neatness and organization, table of contents updated, and accuracy.  Please be patient, scoring notebooks takes time.  I usually enter 3-5 grades when notebooks are scored.  Remember, I am scoring 102 notebooks- each week!!
