BOOK PROJECTS- We're on to the next one
Students are very ready for the next Book Project. I think they saw what could be done on projects and are eager to bump up to the next level of quality. Most students are already reading their next book and have an idea what they would like to do. They must know this information by Tuesday the 19th. The Book Projects are due on April 4th.
MCA MATH APRIL 30 & MAY 2
What's Happening in Math Right Now?
We tested Unit 8 at the end of last week and will begin Unit 9. Percent, dividing decimals and probability are all skills we will explore in this unit.
What to practice on-line
IXL.com is always the answer to this question. There is an additional site that will be valuable as we continue our focus on the upcoming MCA tests. Under math in our website is a link called MCA III. This gives sample problems. You will be able to see what kind of problems your child will be asked to solve. Even though we will work on this site together, there is absolutely nothing wrong with doing several times. That way the strategy is internalized.
We have earned a Pizza & Movie Party.
We will be watching "Despicable Me." A donation of $2.25 will cover the cost of the pizza. Each child will receive 2 pieces of pizza. You are welcome to send a drink and a little more to eat if you think more is needed.
