Tiger Teacher Topics of the Week
Mrs. Jester's Math
This week, in Mrs. Jester's 6th grade math class, we will be using the greatest common factor of two numbers to simplify fractions. We will also be finding the least common multiple of two or more numbers. At the end of the week, we will have a short quiz that covers Lessons 4-1, 4-2, 4-4 and 4-8 in our textbook.
In Mrs. Jester's Pre-AP Pre-Algebra class, we will identify corresponding parts of similar figures and solve for unknown measures in similar figures. We will also solve problems involving scale drawings and graph translations of polygons on a coordinate plane.
Mrs. Campbell and Mrs. Turnbow's Math
Mrs. Reynolds' Spanish
We will be working on two new verbs this week and putting it all together. I look forward to seeing how students do on their challenge conversations.
Ms. Jasper's Science
We are finishing chapter 2 lesson 3 this week. We will be reviewing magnetism and preparing for our 2.3 quiz on Tuesday (our quiz was supposed to be last week, but the volleyball game and play has caused us to be a little behind) and our chapter 2 test on Thursday.
Your students have Lesson 1, 2 and 3 notes for chapter 2. They should be reviewing those in preparation for our Chapter 2 test on Thursday. Their study guide for the test is already available on google classroom.
You can download the ConnectEd app on your child's phone or tablet, and use their username and login I sent you to let them readily have access to videos and activities that go with our book if you want.
Ms. Clark's Science
We had to push the flashlight activity to November 14th. Thank you to everyone who has already brought:
1-2 D Cell Batteries
Toilet paper rolls/paper towel rolls
It really is essential for everyone to at least bring something to use from that list, and it is EXTRA awesome if the electrical or masking tape could be donated for class use. It is one less thing for me to purchase and I truly do appreciate it. It lets me spend money on other future labs.
Next up? Magnetism's relationship to electricity!
Mr. Janzen and Mrs. Anderson's Social Studies
Mrs. Martin and Mrs. Frank's English
Sixth grade English classes will finish reading our novel, Freak the Mighty, next week. We will also analyze poetry and complete a tone/mood project.
