Lessons for the Week of 4/13/2020

  • Hi, everyone! Here is what's on our agenda for this week (4/13/2020).

    • Period 3 - ELA: Before you read, please complete the Figurative Language Warm-Ups worksheet. Explain the figurative meaning of each idiom/ adage and then use it in your own sentence. If you complete 4 per day, you will finish the worksheet by Friday. Then, refer to CommonLit for our next story, "3 Ways to Learn about Consumer Power" by Amanda Oliver. The directions from CommonLit read as follows: "This text explains how to make better choices the next time you buy something." As you read, highlight ways to make a positive difference when choosing what to buy. Practice making annotations by selecting/ highlighting parts of the text and typing a note for yourself.

      Spend Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday reading and annotating. On Thursday, answer the assessment questions. On Friday, respond to the discussion. HAPPY READING!

    • Periods 4, 5/6, 8, 9 - Math: This week, we will complete our daily warm-up with 5-A-Day Math Review: Week 30. Then, we will complete a lesson called "Integers on the Number Line." Picture the Integer Number Line in our classroom. It's on the right side of the white board and it runs up and down with 0 in the middle.

      -Positive numbers are integers.
      -Negative numbers are integers.
      -0 is an integer!
      -In numbers 1-2, you will identify integers as either positive, negative, or zero.
      -In numbers 13-24, you will identify the absolute value of integers. REMEMBER! Absolute values cannot be negative; "Drop the lines, drop the signs!"
      -#25 is a word problem.

      If you'd like to break up the work evenly each day, follow this schedule for completion:
      #s1-5: Monday
      #s 6-10: Tuesday
      #s 11-15: Wednesday
