I hope everyone had an AMAZING long weekend and are ready to kick back into gear tomorrow.
Tomorrow will be our first day with a new program. We will be teaching the 7 mindsets (of success and happiness). Each Monday, in this case Tuesday, we will spend the first 30ish minutes of our day learning strategies to be good learners and people. You can find more information here:
This week is just an introduction where we will learn what the 7 mindsets are.
Yellow Math: We are continuing unit 5 (2D shapes). This week we will be learning the attributes of shapes. We will extend our learning by learning how to find the area of these shapes.
Blue Math: We are finishing up Unit 1 this week. We will have a quiz on Wednesday over expressions and the order of operations. Our Unit 1 test will be friday. It will cover multiplication, division, order of operations, and expressions.
Science: We will continue to learn about how animals and plants are classified. Unit projects were given out on Friday. They will be due September 16th. Their animal must be a real vertebrate so they can research to get the correct information. They MAY use an extinct animal if there is enough information available to them.
I hope everyone is ready for a great week!!
Check back every week for a new post with information about the coming week.
