WHAT WE'RE LEARNING THIS WEEK
Today students are taking the MAP Reading test. You will get the results of this test at conference time. All benchmarks are complete, and I will be sharing that information with you at conference time.
This week we continue on with The Island of the Blue Dolphins. The class is working hard at using text evidence to support their answers, and to use complete sentences when answering questions.
We are taking the MAP test this Thursday, and I will share the results with you at conference time. Students have been instructed on how to use www.xtramath.org and www.frontrowed.com. Both of these programs can be utilized at home, especially on days they do not have homework.
Our objectives for the week are:
- rounding whole numbers
- rounding decimal numbers
- constructing written responses to word problems
So many parents have already signed up. Please consider doing so if you haven't already. Remember that students earn a free mechanical pencil when a parent enrolls in the messaging service.
