Week of May 21

MONDAY:   

Mr. Haywood’s Math:

  • 31B test tomorrow.  To study:  See the study guide and student instruction book pages 326-337.
  • Locker and desk clean out on Thursday.  Please make sure that your child has a bag to carry items home.  All lockers and desks will be emptied on Thursday.

Mrs. Tice’s Language Arts/Reading:

  • We are studying our final unit for this school year:  Fantasy Book Clubs.  Students do not have a reading goal for May; however, students need to stay complete their daily reading pages for their book clubs.  They are given time in class to complete their reading but sometimes are unable to finish.  In these instances, students are to checkout their books and finish them at home.

Mrs. Phillips’ Science / Social Studies:

Last Thursday, we started learning about our nation’s government.  We started with the Articles of Confederation, which had a very weak central government, lack of a national military, lack of national currency, and an inability to tax citizens.  While not being taxed by the federal government sounds like a good idea to taxpayers, it meant we could not pay our soldiers who had fought for our freedom in the Revolutionary War, and we could not pay national debts, among other things.  Therefore, our founding fathers realized we needed a new system.  The 13 states sent representatives to meet again at the Constitutional Convention to create a new plan of government called the United States Constitution.

Here are some questions to review with your parents:

  • What do each of the following terms mean?
    • Popular Sovereignty
    • Republicanism
    • Federalism
    • Separation of Powers
    • Checks and Balances
    • Limited Government
    • Individual Rights
  • Why were our founding fathers so concerned about abuse of power in our government?
  • What is a change to the Constitution called?
  • How many “changes” have been made to the Constitution in the last 225+ years?
  • What were the first 10 changes called?

Extra Credit Opportunity:

Memorize the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution and recite it to Mrs. Phillips by end of day Thursday for 10 extra credit points.  While your at it, using your notes from class, explain to your parents what it means.

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
