"You learn something new everyday"

Hi everyone!  As we navigate through change and shift to digital learning for the time being, I wanted everyone to be updated with our current units of study for each subject area. If you have any questions or need anything at all, please don't hesitate to reach out via Class Dojo or through email at rajkowae@pwcs.edu. I am happy to help in any way that I can! 

Math- Probability- Students determine the likelihood of an outcome of a simple event, represent the probability as a number between 0 and 1 inclusive (on the probability likelihood line), and create a model or practical problem given a probability.

Reading-  We are currently about half way through our 45 day plan which reviews all skills taught this school year.  This includes both fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.  In all areas, students should be able to summarize, identify the main idea and supporting details, make inferences/draw conclusions, identify cause and effect, etc.   

Writing-  The students are currently writing a research paper on a famous person (science and Virginia Studies related).  They have researched and are working on the rough draft.  Students are in the process of revising/editing their papers.  

Social Studies-  We have recently finished the Civil War Unit.  Our focus now is the Reconstruction time period .

Science- The students have just finished up the electricity unit.  They will be starting ecosystems next.
