Writing: Last week, we had little to no time for writing due to the MCAS. This week, we'll pick it up again. Students will write short responses to the texts we read and the "Liberty" movie we'll be watching. In particular, we'll practice writing a summary of an important revolutionary battle in the form of a news article.
Math: We'll have a short quiz on adding and subtracting fractions to make sure students are on the right track. Then we'll continue with adding and subtracting mixed numbers when you must "borrow" from the whole. We'll learn how to convert from mixed numbers to improper fractions and back again. We'll also play a game to practice turning fractions into their simplest form.
