- This week students will begin writing Appreciation Notes, a fun way to show gratitude and kindness in anticipation of Valentine's Day. You can find the assignment sheet here, as well as extra appreciation hearts here. Students should begin working on their notes this week so that they have time to complete them all before February 13.

Reading: Students will continue studying point of view and perspective, both in literature and non-fiction.
Social Studies: We are currently wrapping up our unit on the Age of Exploration with our Explorer Reports. Students have been researching, analyzing, and writing about an explorer in small groups in order to answer the question: Should this explorer still be studied today? Last week we also began our unit on Colonial Times.
Writing: Students have become figurative language experts, brushing up on similes, metaphors, idioms, personification, and now hyperboles. Next week, we will wrap up our study of figurative language with a culminating project.
Science: Students began their life science rotation with Mrs. Womack.
