What We're Learning About:May 2016
Students have been preparing hard for our upcoming SOL test in Reading. We took a practice SOL test and have been practicing our comprehension strategies with a variety of passages. Please continue to support your child by reviewing provided SOL study guide with them.
Students are learning how to plan, draft, and revise informational writing. They are choosing topics they know a lot about and then organizing their information into a detailed, readable format. As the year wraps up, students will continue to work on non-fiction writing and work on using various non-fiction text features (such as glossaries, headings, diagrams, etc.) to enrich their writing. We will not have spelling tests during SOL testing season.
Students finished up a unit on 2-D geometry and linear measurement and are now working on their final unit of the year: 3-D geometry, time, temperature, weight/mass, and liquid capacity. We will finish this unit before our Math SOL test on May 19th. We are also busy reviewing concepts and skills from throughout the year in preparation for the SOL.
Our final social studies unit will be Prince William County history and will take place in June, after SOLs are over. There is no final unit test but rather class activities and projects that account for the students' social studies grade for this unit.
Students are learning about the cycles and characteristics of the Earth, moon, and sun. Our test on this unit is on Friday, May 6th. Our final two science units of the year will be about soil and physical properties of matter.
