Math and Science

Math- In math, we are finishing up our learning of conversion with the metric system. Students have learned to convert from meters to centimeters, millimeters, and kilometers. Later on in the week students will have to use this knowledge in word problems. Finally, we will review for our Modules 7-9 CBA.


Science- In science, we are investigating the change in daylight hours from season to season. We will also investigate the reason for the seasons, and how the moon affects tides.

STRIDE

Students have their log in and school code in their SPUR folder so they may access this awesome program at home. It can be accessed through any device that has wifi. As part of your child's math homework each week, we are requiring at least 60 minutes a week. It is a great tool to close any gaps your students may have and push them to the next level in their learning. The program has great videos for reviewing difficult concepts in math, reading, and writing. If your student is having trouble with technology or the Stride program please jot us a quick email or note.


Let's continue to LEAD THE WAY by getting as many STRIDE minutes as we can!
