- Have you heard about the 100 MILE CLUB?! ITS AWESOME! The 100 Mile Club is a program offering the challenge to run/walk/jog 100 miles over the course of a school year. Click here for more information. Most of our students are approaching the 25-mile mark after a lot of hard work. If you haven't already, please send your child with $10 for the cost of the program which includes a sweet t-shirt after completing 25 miles, a club pencil, wristband, and gold medal at the end of the year for participants who complete 100 miles. If you have questions, contact Mr. Logan.
This week we start a new unit! We will be reading a novel called, "Fever Crumb". It is a dystopian sci-fi story that centers around a strange young girl called Fever that doesn't know where she came from. Students will be reading at an aggressive pace and every week we will prepare for Literature Circle that takes place on Fridays.
We will start a new unit here as well. Students are writing their on demand pretests for our Information writing unit. We will be focusing on companion material to fiction that we have read or will read. Students will choose.
Our first unit, the materials life cycle of products ends this week. We'll review the steps in the process, reflect on how we can interact with the cycle more sustainably and complete an exam to test our growth. Up next? Inventing the Future of Snacks! Stay tuned for more information.
This week and next are the final two in our study of proportional relationships. We will take a few more quizzes to check our understanding (check schoolnet.dpsk12.org) and even design the floor plan of our dream classroom. Also, look for graded work from this first unit to come home Thursday with a signature page. A copy of the page can be found as an attachment. Check here for assignments and lessons. We are in lessons 18 and 19 this week.
