TN was not READY!!!
Well in case you have not heard....TN was not ready once again!!!!! There are many mixed emotions, but in the big picture- we do not TEACH because our students have to take tests. We teach because we are preparing our students for 5th grade and the future! So please know we are excited to be teaching this week instead of sitting in silence watching your child TEST. We still have standards to master so that we can assure them and you, they are READY for 5th grade!!!
We will be reviewing
Homework this week..
Monday - Sort and Write
Wednesday- 10 sentences
Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two column table. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36), ...
Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale
Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.
