I hope everyone is ready for a short week and a long weekend :). Fun plans?
5th Grade field trip is coming up! Students who are attending need to make sure they have all of their forms and medications turned in now.
Google apps for education: My class will be testing out this new technology feature. Forms were sent home awhile ago and I am still waiting for some kids to return them to me. If they do not return them, they are not allowed to have a google account.
Blue Math: We just started our new unit covering coordinate planes this week. Students will continue to work on this for several weeks. We will not test this unit until after Milestones testing in complete. They will have learned all of the information but we are waiting to give the actual unit test. We will be reviewing all units to prepare for Milestones as well.
Yellow Math: We have been working on finding area of shapes. We will continue to find the area of composite shapes and complex figures. We will also learn about 3D shapes and how to find Volume and Surface area of these shapes. Our test for this unit will be NEXT FRIDAY, March 18th (the Friday before the 5th grade field trip).
Science: We have been learning about chemical and physical changes. Students will continue to work on this. Their Test will be NEXT WEDNESDAY, March 16th.
I hope everyone has fun plans for the weekend!
Check back every week for a new post with information about the coming week.
