Our Week of Learning
This week students worked on completing their religion poster boards. We spent time organizing our collected information and then planning our presentation, which will take place next Friday. The class is nearly finished with Tuck Everlasting as well. This book is about the idea of immortality and the cycle of life, which connects well with our central idea regarding shared belief systems.

In mathematics we reviewed operational math with fractions and decimals. We also reviewed our understanding of rates, ratios, and percents. Together we finished our coordinate plane Día de los Muertos calavera, and we will display them next week.

Next week will devote the majority of our time to completing the How we express ourselves unit of inquiry as well as our tri fold poster boards for Science Night.
Home-School Connection
AS IB students, your child should demonstrate behaviors and actions regarding their own learning. This could be:
Demonstrating our new social skill of COOPERATION, or engaging in conversation about current events related to religion and values. In other words, students should be observing their world, asking questions, and making connections about their learning, so they can eventually share their newfound knowledge with others. Students are always able to work in Khan Academy and/or Rosetta Stone while at home as well.
*Please let me know if you observe your child participating in scholarship at home; these can be small acts! A simple email explaining their behavior would be much appreciated.
