Weekly Update 2/1/19

Good evening parents,
 
This coming week the students will be taking a mock Math STAAR on Monday and the reading mock STAAR on Tuesday. We would like to prepare our kids for the STAAR "scenery" and see what they have learned so far this year. There will be questions the students have not learned yet, but we will simply just ask them to do their best, so we can see what they know. 
Things to remember:
*Students need to bring a book(s) that will keep them interested. After they are finished with the test their only option will be to read until everyone is done testing.
*It can get cold in our classrooms so it is best that they bring a light jacket.
*Please make sure to pack them a hearty snack and a water bottle.
 
In Math this week:
The students have been getting very good at identifying fractions. This week we will start comparing fractions and finding equivalent fractions. 
Students should have come home with a fractions homework page. I have posted the answer key below this post. I am asking that it is due by Friday, Feb. 8th.
 
In Science this week:
We will continue our unit on our Solar System.
 
 
 

Weekly Update 1/27/19

In Math this week:
* We will start our unit on Fractions. This week we will focus on identifying a fraction and learn how to break it apart into what we call unit fractions.
* We will take our x6 fact quiz on Friday.
 
In Science this week:
*We will finish up our unit on Soil/Resources and will take our test on Wednesday.  I will post some questions you can ask your child to help review them for the test.
*We will start our unit on the Solar System on Thursday.
 
Odds and Ends:
We still have a few students that have said their "I can" journals are at home. If you happen to see one, please send it to school with them. We are keeping them in our classroom now.

Weekly Update 1/21/19

In Math this week:
Tuesday: We will review for our Division Test.
Wednesday: *Division Review due* We will take our Division Test.
Thursday: *X3 fact Check* We will analyze our test results and set a goal.
Friday: (I will be out this day) The students will begin their unit on Fractions.
 
In Science this week:
We will continue to talk about the processes that rocks go through, and move into renewable and nonrenewable resources by the end of the week.
 
Odds and Ends:
*Next week is x6 for our fact check.
*Your child should have an "I can" journal in their backpack. If they happened to take it out, please make sure it gets back in their backpack. We are going to collect these and keep them in class to make sure the students have them when they need them.
*Mrs. Kasper is sending in Scholastic book orders on Tuesday if you'd like to order.
*We have many students that don't have headphones. Please check with your child and see if they still have headphones at school. We are using them in all classes at this point in the year.
 
That's it for now! Have a great week!
