The Georgia Milestones End of Grade state assessments (this will replace the CRCT) will be given between the dates of April 16 - April 30. All assessments will be given online. Assessments will be given using a staggered grade level schedule that may change as needed. PLEASE make all arrangements possible to be at school during this window.We will have online practice sessions before this time so the children will know what to expect.
Here is a glance at our week.
Math- MCC3.G.1 - MCC3.G.2 : What are differences and similarities between polygons and quadrilaterals? We will finish up our Geometry unit this week and assess on Thursday. Your child was told to put the geometry vocabulary in his/her homework folder to review the 2D quadrilaterals. I recommended to them that they fold the paper, read the definition, and see if they can recall the word. It is not a vocabulary assessment; however, they will need to know the vocabulary to answer questions and compare quadrilaterals. FYI...they will NOT need to know a heptagon is a 7 sided figure! :) Next week we will discuss equally partitioning geometric figures and start learning fractions.
Reading and Writing : RI 1, 2, 3 -
We will finish our study on Mary McLeod Bethune and her contributions to civil rights. This assessment will be on Friday. A vocabulary study guide is posted below and some notes will be sent home tomorrow.

We started our research and note-taking on different plants in Georgia and in the RBES garden. We will be writing informational text on each plant. This will integrate well with our Science standards. Next week will will type our informational text onto a website and then create a QR code for the website. The QR codes will be attached to the appropriate plant in the RBES garden so that students can use the garden to learn informational facts about specific plants in Georgia.
