Mr. Simon's Class

    What are we doing in class?

    Math: In math, we have 3 assignments as take home work in ThinkCentral to finish up on angles.  We are also going back and reviewing past standards, in preparation for FSA math in May.  We assigned a kickstart due Wednesday April 3.

    Science: In science, we will be discussing plant reproduction the week of April 8. 

    Language Arts: In language arts, we are studying the revolutionary war to learn about cause and effect relationships, chronological events, and problem - solution analysis. In writing we did a practice test for 120 minutes March 26 on "contact sports" in preparation for the FSA writing test April 2. They are given a prompt and one to three articles to use as evidence for their information, or argument in an opinion essay. 

    Social Studies: In social studies, we are studying "Growing Florida" with the impact of the railroad on the growth of Florida. Students can now access Studies Weekly on their portal in the textbook section - we are on week 24.  

    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  If they read in MyOn, I get a report on those automatically!
