BOOK PROJECTS- They were great
We have finished our first round of Book Projects. We saw some very creative projects and learned about some terrific books. We've included some of the book projects in our newsletter. The next Book Project will be due on April 10th. That is a ways off, but it's not too late to chose what book to read.
NWEA & MCA FOCUS
What's Happening in Math Right Now?
We are working on Unit 8 in math. This is a unit on area and perimeter. We are also working on terms that might come up in either the NWEA or MCA tests. The Everyday Math site above can give you a picture of what we are working on in Unit 8.
What to practice on-line
Our class website has many ways to practice. IXL.com is a very supportive site. I've listed some of the areas to practice below.
