There is no school on Friday, March 15th. It is a Superintendent's Conference day!
Ms. Gleason's Class ~ The children took the module 4 assessment this week. They should have brought it home for a parent signature. If your child would like to make corrections, they have a half blue sheet with the guidelines. All signed tests and corrections are due on Monday. Yesterday we started module 5 which is our fraction unit. It is a long unit and will last a few months. During that time, students will learn how to find equivalent fractions, compare, add and subtract both fractions and mixed numbers. Our first few lessons were on decomposing fractions.
Mr. Hart's Class ~ We have spent the past couple of weeks getting deep into module 4. The kids have been learning about lines, line segments, rays, and types of angles. In addition this week we learned how to use a circle and half circle protractor to measure and draw angles. We took both the topic A and topic B quiz. They should be in your child's Friday folder today. Next week we will be talking about adjacent angles and how to determine the measurement of an adjacent angle without the use of a protractor. I hope to finish up this module by late next week or early the following week. After this module we will move into one on fractions.
