Mrs. Gentry's Classroom
The students took a pre-test for this multiplication unit. This data will be used with the post-test results to measure students' mastery and growth. The students will also be given two benchmark quizzes throughout the unit. Our first quiz is today. It is simply 12 multiplication problems. I will grade these benchmarks as well as the post-test.
Math Game Day
We are also starting a short genre study. We are talking about different categories of literature and how to identify each. We started with historical fiction, of course, because we are studying it. Through the next week and a half, we will talk about science fiction, fantasy, realistic fiction, fables/legends/myths, fairy tales, biographies/autobiographies, and poetry.
At the end of this week we will take another quiz with a constructed response question. The kids are doing really well with these!
Grandparents Day is this Friday from 1:30 to 2:15. Grandparents will be directed to our room, 28.
Soar through Social Studies
The test for this chapter will not be for a couple more weeks, as we will spend more time studying each lesson and doing more class activities to enrich their learning.
Students are not required to take the notebooks home, but are certainly allowed to do so. If your child wants to catch up, please encourage him/her to bring it home.
