Mystery "Google Hangout"
This week we did something called a mystery hangout. A mystery hangout is an activity where you have to figure out where the other class is face timing from. The fun thing about mystery hangout is that you have no idea where they are. The funny thing is they were in Illinois too.

Mrs. Hassels' Math Class
In math we are learning about coordinates, we watched a video on the coordinate plane. Also we are doing our study links in school, and doing coordinate sheets for homework. We also learned about angles we did clarisketch video on them. also we measured the angles with half circle or full circle protractors. On Thursday we did an angles sheet for homework, but some people did it in class. On Friday we did some partial quotient problems.

Mrs. Price's Math Class
This week we continued Pearson Math. Most of the week we reviewed for our test that is going to next week on Tuesday February 9 . We reviewed by taking a practice test and making our own study guide in our math notebooks. When we had extra time we played a division wrap around game for this game the answers could be cents, dollars, or whole numbers. Next unit we are going guided math with either do keep Pearson or switch back to Everyday Math. We were trying out Pearson with Mrs. Price. This is what we did this week in math. (See picture below... Getting out some energy and moving to the beat with GoNoodle!)
*A note from Mrs. Price - In math the class is using the enVision math program which is on the Chromebook. There are many options available within this program. The practice buddy homework is done right on the Chromebook. One of the nice options for this way to do the homework is the fact that when a child gets a problem wrong they then complete another similar problem. They also have videos and other tools to use right on the document that they can use to solve the problems. We will be using this and Everyday Math through out the rest of the year. As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
Young Authors is in full swing for the year. Completed books are due to your child’s school no later than Friday, February 26th. Judging by community volunteers will take place the following week.
