Check below for this weeks updates :)
Next week is ITBS testing. Please do not have students bring devices that week. If they NEED to bring a device for after school activities, please let me know. They will need to power down devices and turn them in during testing.
Parent Resources: Below is a link to upraised math. This is a math resource which tells you what your students is currently working on in math. It also has some resources that can help you to understand how they are learning the skill which we all know is different then how you learned it :).
We will be starting Unit 7 on Wednesday. We will be learning about the coordinate plane and functions. They will be able to plot points, locate points, determine distance between points, and create points based on real world functions. Links to resources are located on the Yellow Math tab of the Class web page.
We will be starting Unit 3 on Wednesday. We will learn how to multiply and divide decimals. This will be similar to our previous unit of multiplying and dividing whole numbers. Students will be able to use a grid method, area model, partial products, and algorithm to complete real world problems. Links to resources are located on the Blue Math tab of the Class web page.
We will be continuing out unit on Cells and Microorganisms. Students already have learned about the different organelles and will complete their "Cell City" project by October 27th. They will be allowed to bring in their project during ITBS Week (October 19th-23rd) so we can work on them in class.
Test dates: To be determined :)
Check back every week for a new post with information about the coming week.
