Friday, September 25th
We will be taking our first Forces of Motion Unit test on Friday. We will begin discussing Kinetic and Potential energy, energy transformation, and simple machines next week.
Students should also be annotating their novel in one of three ways- directly in the novel, on post-it notes, or on notebook paper with page numbers. For chapter 7, they are looking for stereotypes or the breaking of stereotypes.
This past Tuesday, we tested on Unit 1. This week, we are beginning Unit 2: Operations with Rational Numbers. We will first study operations with decimals, and then fractions. Unit 2 will have two quizzes (decimal quiz & fraction quiz) before the final unit test. Please remember that when your child is absent, they can download notes and view our videos while at home so they are not behind when they return to school!
Calculator Rental Time! If you are not quite ready to buy that expensive graphing calculator, we have a rental program at school. If interested, your child needs to pick up a rental form from me, and bring it home for you both to read and sign. They then need to bring it to the school lobby before school starts the week of 9/28 to get their calculator. If your child does have their own calculator, they do not need it at school until we begin Unit 3.
