5th Grade 101
Mrs. Harris' Class Newsletter Wee k of 9/7/15
What we did this week
Math: We learned about Place Value of decimals and related decimals to fractions. I was really impressed with how much the students already knew! They did a GREAT job understanding the concepts. Several graded assignments were taken this week.
What we are doing next week
Math: We will continue with decimals and fractions by rounding, comparing, and ordering them. Our first District checkpoint quiz will be Friday over everything that we have learned so far. Students should have recorded it in their agenda, and they have some great notes in their journals to study if they choose to do so.
I will introduce the Flipped Classroom model next week by showing students a lesson and teach them how to pause the video and take quality notes. We will start the Flipped Classroom model as homework beginning the week of the 14th. I really think students will like it and respond positively to it.
