We had a wonderful first week back at Greenbrier! In addition to starting lots of new learning, students also enjoyed our Jump Rope for Heart kickoff and meeting with their Greenbrier Houses for the first time! This week is our last week with our Buffalo Grove teaching intern, Mr. Gross! We will miss him very much!

In Math, we started and finished a short unit on variables and algebraic expressions. We will take a Celebration of Learning on Monday and then move into a short unit to review area of rectangles and triangles. In Writing, the students started learning about the persuasive writing rhetorical devices: ethos, logos, and pathos. We will take these devices and learn to strategically apply them to our writing this week. In Reading, students worked on summarizing and identifying key details in nonfiction texts. This week, we will explore the various types of text structure in the nonfiction genre. In Social Studies, students learned about the Constitutional Convention and the Articles of Confederation.
