**GOOD MORNING STUDENTS,**

This first block begins with Language Arts Writing. This week’s focus is spelling and today’s lesson we will explore prefixes. I will post a website that will help to explain the prefix combinations and their meanings. You will then receive a practice task with a spelling list. You must complete this task by tomorrow. (NOTE: THERE WILL BE SPELLINg TESTS COMING VERY SOON). The next period is Media Literacy. You must first submit last week’s “Children watching Television” task for assessment. We will then move on to the next area of exploration – marketing to teens. We will check out the strategies used by advertisers to get teens and preteens to buy their products. We will consult a Powerpoint and video to get started. I will ask you beforehand what you think those strategies are.

The middle block begins with Dramatic Arts as presented by MME. We then move on to Mathematics. You must access last Friday’s volume of a rectangular prism and cube for checking and corrections. We will now discuss how to find the surface area of a rectangular prism and cube. I will use anchor charts + website to present the process and procedures. You will need a calculator for this. Your practice task is due tomorrow.

The final block of the day begins with Science. We will begin our review for tomorrow’s test on What is Electricity, The Atom, and Static Electricity. I will have you find all your notes and place them on your desk. We will then check out a few websites and videos to help us review. The final period of the day is Geography. We will continue with our study of longitude and latitude lines via a text package and response task – this is due Thursday.
