point an exact location in space
line a straight path of points that continues without end in both directions
line segment a part of a line between two endpoints
ray a part of a line, with one endpoint, that is straight and continues in one direction
angle formed by two rays or line segments that have the same endpoint; the shared endpoint is called the vertex
acute angle an angle that has a measure less than a right angle
right angle an angle that forms a square corner and has a measure of 90˚
straight angle an angle in which two rays point in opposite directions so that they form a line (180˚)
obtuse angle an angle that has a measure greater than a right angle
acute triangle a triangle with three acute angles
right triangle a triangle with one right angle
obtuse triangle a triangle with one obtuse angle
line symmetry what a shape has if it can be folded about a line so that its two parts match exactly
line of symmetry an imaginary line that divides a shape into two congruent parts
intersecting lines lines in a plane that cross at exactly one point; intersecting lines form four angles
parallel lines lines in a plane that are always the same distance apart; parallel lines never intersect
perpendicular lines lines in a plane that intersect and form four right angles
trapezoid 1 pair of parallel sides

 rock: a group of solid minerals that are joined together into one mass
 mineral: a solid, nonliving material that forms in nature
 rock cycle: the process by which the three types of rocks are formed and reformed from the materials in the Earth
 igneous: rock that forms when melted rock cools and hardens
 sedimentary: rock that forms when small rock pieces and other materials settle and then get squeezed or cemented together
 metamorphic: rock that has been changed by heat or pressure
 luster: how light reflects off a mineral’s surface
 streak: the color of a mineral in powdered form
 hardness: how easily a mineral can be scratched
 cleavage: when a mineral breaks along a smooth, flat surface

JOURNAL & HANDWRITING
 Journal: Daily, students will write at least five complete and interesting sentences to a given prompt. They will be graded on their focus, organization, support, and conventions.
 Handwriting: Once we have finished learning all cursive letters, students will practice through spelling and select classroom assignments. FYI: Their traceandcopy cursive papers are highlighted based on how they are forming their letters. The following are some of the reasons their words may get highlighted: for going above or below the lines; not retracing over their lines, but instead forming a loop where there shouldn’t be one; not dotting i’s or crossing t’s; picking up the pencil and making stray marks that make the letters look “hairy”; not slanting their letters properly, etc. They have been told to look at my example and trace it before writing their own. They may retrace my example as many times as needed in order to get the right feel of the letter(s).
