    Reminders for this Week: 
    -APEX is still going on! Keep raising money for our school so we can update technology, outdoor learning spaces, and more! The website for APEX is www.myapexevent.com 
    -Monday, February 19th is President's Day, so there is no school for students. 
    -Thursday, February 22nd is our APEX Remix. Students should come to school dressed to dance and complete fitness moves in the multi-purpose room. 
    This Week: 
    -In ELA, students will be beginning a new unit which involves our solar system. Students will be learning about the parts of our solar system, the moon, and the planets. Students will be looking at this concept through reading passages and questions based on the reading passage. This concept will also be taught during science, so the students will fully understand the solar system. 
    -Vocabulary Words 
    • Reading Terms: 
      • Relationship – connection between two parts or things 

      • Cause – why something happens 

      • Effect – the thing that happens 

    • Math Terms: 

      • Quadrilateral – a four sided closed figure 

      • Polygon – closed, flat shape made of straight lines 

      • Partition – splitting something into smaller parts 

    -In math, students will be learning about shapes, how to classify them and how to partition them into smaller parts. These lessons will lead us into fractions next week. 
    -In science, students will be learning about our solar system, planets, and the moon. This will go along with our ELA unit and the grades will be counting twice for these assignments (in ELA and science).
