We are about 7 weeks away from spring break which means we are starting Milestone Madness! This is homework for students over the next 7 weeks. Please see information linked on my website here with expectations and a video explaining Milestone Madness.
Thank you so much for all of the generous donations during Pie Wars! I am not sure who won but I am just proud of all of the money we were able to raise for a great cause. Thank you all so much!
Long weekend ahead!! Please keep in mind that there is not school for students Friday, Monday, and Tuesday.
Blue Math: We are starting unit 5, 2D shapes and their attributes. Test date information is TBD. Students will learn about the attributes of shapes and how they relate to each other in a hierarchy of shapes. While this unit has very little math "computations", students still tend to struggle with all of the reading that is required of them. Please make sure you are reviewing and help your child work through this unit.
Yellow Math: We are starting unit 6 which covers Statistics. This is a difficult unit as it is one of the first times students will be dealing with statistics. Students will be required to analyze information and graph their information in order to draw conclusions. They will learn how to find measures of center including mean, median, and mode as well as graph using histograms and box plots. Please make sure you are reviewing and help your child work through this unit.
Social Studies: We are continuing working on World War II. So far, we have learned about the causes, why America entered the war, and what life was like here on the home front. We will continue to learn about turning points of the war and events that finally led to the end of the war. Our test over this unit will be Friday, February 22nd.
Check back every week for a new post with information about the coming week.
