I am so sorry this is going out late this week! Here are some reminders for the rest of the week.
Friday- Students may wear a mustache if they donate a dollar to relay for life. How ever much money my class raises throughout the year is how many laps I have to do at the Relay For Life event in the spring :) I hope everyone has fun with this and wears a mustache! (It can be a stick on or mustache pants or shirts etc.)
Yellow math- We have been reviewing decimals and fractions which we learned previously. We just started learning about finding the Greatest Common Factor and Least Common Multiple. We will practice finding these using prime factorization. Notes/videos/etc can be found on the yellow math tab of this website.
Blue math- We have been reviewing what we learned about fractions in 4th grade. We will start adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators. We will be learning about adding and subtracting fractions throughout the next week. By next Friday, we will be able to add and subtract mixed numbers using models and the algorithm.
Science- We have been learning about heredity for the past week and a half. Students know the difference between inherited traits and instincts, and learned behaviors . Their test over this will be Friday. Their Heredity project (Tic Tac Toe) will be due MONDAY. (This due date is a change. I will tell them about this tomorrow).
Check back every week for a new post with information about the coming week.
