Mr. Simon's Class

    What are we doing in class?

    Math: In math, we are working on "Equivalent Fractions" , such as 1/2 = 2/4. This is Chapter 6 in GoMath, available in "ThinkCentral" on the student desktop. Students can log into "interactive student edition" to have the program correct their work. Other sites the students enjoy include Prodigy math www.prodigygame.com - I will assign lessons each week that match up with the curriculum - not a required activity, though. Best review activity is multiplication flash cards! 

    Science: In science, we are continuing our study of motion by looking at measuring speed of objects. 

    Language Arts: In language arts, we are continuing our poetry unit.  In grammer, we are studying adverbs.  Also, homophones, or words that sound alike but have different meanings such as "to", "two" and "too".

    Social Studies: In social studies, we received our "Social Studies Weekly" and are studying Florida Settlements, leading up to our St. Augustine field trip. Students can now access Studies Weekly on their portal in the textbook section - we are on week 7, and will be starting week 8 later this week.  

    Homework: As always, read at least 20 minutes a day.  This is the best way for our students to improve in all academic subjects.  Reading Logs can be filled out electronically - save to your computer and e-mail back, or let me know through ClassDojo the infomation. Reading Log
