Yellow math: Last week, we did work with congruency, symmetry, and translations. Our quiz over these skills will be Tuesday (9/15). Will be continuing our geometry unit this week. We will learn about the attributes of shapes and how to find the area of several of these shapes. We will also be learning about triangles. This will include the different types of triangles and finding the area of these triangles. Our triangles quiz will be tentatively scheduled for Friday (9/18). We will shoot to have our test over this unit on Tuesday (9/22).
Science: We have been learning about classification of plants and animals. We have learned about vertebrates and invertebrates, the 5 different types of vertebrates, and vascular and nonvascular plants. We will have our science quiz on classification on Wednesday (9/16). Our classification test will be Friday (9/18).
** I know there area several quizzes this week for yellow math. Please be aware that these are very short assessments which are designed to make sure they are ready for the upcoming test. I use these results to drive my instruction and remediate before the final test. These will be graded and returned before the tests as study tools.
Check back every week for a new post with information about the coming week.
