Respect, Responsiblity, Caring, and Honesty

Welcome to 

Ms. Paradise's 

Classroom Website!




Language Arts:  

    Reading:  We are reading the novel Tuck Everlasting, by Natalie Babbitt.

    Spelling:  New spelling lists were handed out on Monday.  We have a spelling assignment on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  Final test is given on Friday!

    Writing:  We are participating in "The Great Mail Race"!  We are planning to contact all 50 states, through handwritten letters and questionnaires.  We are hoping to get responses from all 50 states in order to learn about schools all over the country!




        We are currently studying ecosystems and animal relationships.  The students are working in partners, or independently to complete a research paper about omnivores, carnivores, and herbivores.  


Social Studies:

We have begun Chapter 18, which touches on WWI, the Roaring 20's, The Great Depression, WWII, and the "Postwar Years".


We are also reading The Great Fire, by Jim Murphy.  This is a nonfiction book about the Chicago Fire, and the people who lived through it.




    We have taken our test on adding and subtracting decimals, and are moving on to multiplying and dividing decimals!!
