This week students are working on finding the area of trapezoids. To find the area of a trapezoid use this formula:
(legnth of base 1 + legnth of base 2) x height and divide by 2.
Practice by logging in to IXL.
We will also be visited by local author Stephanie Watson, author of Elvis and Olive and The Wee Hours. Stephanie will discuss the writing process with students and discuss her new book, Pencilvania.

Students will also be studying simile and metaphor.
This week students will continue to revise their personal narratives.
