Mrs. Close's Class ~ We've been super busy preparing for the upcoming NYS assessment. Along the way, we've also re-reviewed some geometry concepts, reflected on the final CML, completed iReady lessons, and played some games!

May is a very busy math month! After the assessment, on Monday, May 8th, we'll begin the bridge project! The following week will be math placement testing and the completion of the bridge project. At the end of May, we'll pick back up with Module 7.

Mr. Hart's Class ~ We have spent the better part of this week preparing for the state math assessment. We have looked at several multiple choice questions and some 2 and 3 point longer response questions. We will spend today and Monday looking at anchor papers, to determine what a solid 2 and 3 point answer looks like. After the assessment we will to our module on fractions.
