I have typed all of the Social Studies outline into Study Stacks.  Click on the link below to play games, study flashcards, and take quizzes on the information.  After you click on the link, than click on ss chapter 6.  This link is also under the Notes/Outlines tab. Have fun!

Social Studies Test

This Friday we are having our Social Studies test on the 13 states and capitals from unit 3.  The students have these 13 listed in their binders.  The test will be matching, so they will just need to be able to recognize which capital goes with which state.

Next Tuesday we will be having our Chapter 6 Social Studies test.  This will be where the students need to study their outlines.  They have all of the answers as of today (9/26/12).  The test will consist of multiple choice, matching, and several short answers.  The students have everything they need for the test in their outline.

Sorry about the link on the previous post.  I have put the link under the list of Useful Websites as Scholastic Reading.  Hopefully this works.

Reading Challenge

The students and I have decided to do the Scholastic Reading Challenge this fall. 
We will be joining with kids across the country to side with either cats or dogs in a pledge to read every day to help make their team reading champions - while also helping to donate 250,000 books to kids in need.    All we need to do is read at home for at least 20 minutes each day.
It's all part of an exciting reading campaign called Paws for Reading.  I have given each student a log sheet to keep track of their minutes read.  You or your student can log these onto the website (www.scholastic.com/paw) or I am more than happy to do this at school. 
Thank you for your support and happy reading!!!
