Filed under: Uncategorized — mrtoney @ 2:28 PM

Greetings Parents!

This week, December 9th  through December 13th, Ms. Garza the student-intern from the University of Chicago – Urban Teacher Education Program, will be fully responsible for all instruction. She is completely responsible for the planning, implementation, assignments, and grading for this week.

Here is an overview of the student’s week:

In English Language Arts, students are currently exploring biographies. Students will learn how to identify the theme, main idea, character traits, and summarize nonfiction biographical texts.

This week in Math, students will be introduced to the relationship between fraction and decimals.  On Friday, students will play relevant math games that allow them to have more exposure to fractions with different denominators, equivalent fractions, and decimals to the tenths and hundredths place.

In Social Science, students will describe the physical geography of the southwest region. They will read and identify physical landmarks on a map of the southwest region.

If you have any questions, encouragements, concerns, or comments at all, please feel welcomed to e-mail me at mrtoney@cps.edu with the subject Ms. Garza’s takeover.

Ms. Garza and Dr. Toney- James
