Happy New Year!
Dear UMAC Parents,
New Friends: This week as we have started Chapter 6, students are learning the importance of their basic computational skills as they dive into this new skill. We are using the traditional method to compute their quotients. Hopefully they are using the letters: D,M,S,C,B to remember to divide, multiply, subtract, check and bring down! Please also remember, a quick five minute review of math facts 0-12 will help your child tremendously!
Old Friends: Our old friends have spent the week reviewing the rules of reading and constructing bar graphs and circle (pie) graphs. We also spent time reviewing concepts from the beginning of the chapter (prior to winter break) like computing fractions to decimals to percents. Students will take the unit 5 assessment on Monday, January 11th.
As a colonist leaving England, each student wrote a farewell letter on Google classroom to explain why they were leaving England and how they had chosen this colony to become a new place to live. By generating compelling reasons proving this important decision, they used the opportunity to show their knowledge from this chapter well. These fine letters will be displayed in the hallway for our school to see!
