We have discussed financial institutions, ways to use your money (share, save, spend), fixed vs variable expenses, and how to find profit. Here is an extra review if your students needs more help! Answer key is below. 

Oakcrest Orientation

Save the date for May 8th from 7:15-8:15pm.  Oakcrest Intermediate will be hosting Parent Orientation for incoming 5th grade students and parents.  We will miss our students but so proud as they begin their new journey to Intermediate. :) 

Geometry Review

Over the last month, we have studied angles, lines, and polygons (specifically quadrilaterals). We will be completing a test review in class tomorrow in preparation for our test Tuesday. I know students are prepared and will do well on the test. Here is another review if needed. I suggest not to work through the entire document. Choose a few of each topic and see how your student does on the question. Complete more if needed. :) 

Measurement Conversions Review

I will be out of the classroom for the next 3 days at a training. I taught the lesson on converting measurements today and students will spend the next few days practicing. I made this video for the students to be able to watch for those moments when they forget "how Mrs. Shiflet explained it". I also posted this in our google classroom.
