We are learning about “What Makes Louisiana Unique” . We will be on Social Studies from 10-22-18 to 11-9-18. Our topic for Unit 2 will be Louisiana’s First Inhabitants which will include Poverty Point Indians-Farming, Hunting, Fishing, and community life. We will continue working in our new student workbook that was provided to us by JPPSS. We are also having guest on Thursday from the Jefferson Parish Department of Environmental Affairs. Our students will learn about Point and non point pollution and solutions. It is out of order but we do this activity to accommodate their schedule. There will also be a poster project that will be done in class. Leo Kerner always winds up with a winner!!Our test will be scheduled for 10-24 on Point and non point pollution from the presentation. I will send home a study guide for the Unit Test on Monday Oct. 29th. The Unit Test is scheduled for 11-8-18.
We are going to have a Social Studies take home activity. The Students should place four to five objects in the bag that I provided for them. The object should tell a story about them. We have been talking about these in class. If you have any questions please contact me via email. I am leaving it up to the students to decide what they want to place in their bag. Items that do not fit in the bag should not be brought to school. Thank you
We are learning about “Forces,Motion, and Magnetism”. We have a unit test on Oct. 19th. I will provide the students with a Study Guide on Monday Oct. 15th. We are doing the study guide in class as a workstation. The students are very excited about be able to go into the Science Lab this year. Please ask them about their experiments and encourage them to recreate these experiences at home if possible.
The students should make study cards if possible to study from besides their study guides. I will also allow them to bring their notebooks home for studying.
