What we're learning this week
This year is a bit different from last, in that data will include fractions with common denominators. This will include adding and subtracting fractions using data sets as well.
Homework: Homework will go home on Monday and it will be another column sheet to review skills learned from this year. Students are welcome to complete the homework pages early, however I do check them every day.
Fluency: Although we no longer have weekly fluency quizzes, students are still taking weekly timed "math minutes." They are expected to make progress with each week so continue to practice your facts at home and use Reflex!
PSSA Prep: We are also working on short response and essay response questions for the PSSAs. This includes using our strategies to completely answer the question with supporting details from the text!
This week we had an assembly by the American Giants of Science
Here are 2 famous scientists during the production. Each scientist would come out and explain what they are known for. Scientists included Thomas Edison, Bill Gates, George Washington Carver and more
