Week of January 18th
This Week in Math...
Fraction computation practice and remediation will also occur this week. Students will have their final quiz on Wednesday and will take the 5.6 Fraction Computation test on Friday. Study guides are due on Thursday. We've spent a lot of time preparing for this assessment. Subtracting mixed numbers is by far the area in which our students struggle the most. Below is a video from The Teaching Channel in which the lesson is taught in a very similar fashion to how our students are taught. It's also very helpful for parents. Check it out!
Math Benchmark Testing
Our second math benchmark test will be held next Wednesday and Thursday. Students will have a daily benchmark review sheet to complete as seatwork in class. At home, students can prepare by reviewing their study guides or visiting our class Blendspace page. The following topics will be tested:
5.6 Fraction Computation
5.13 2D Shapes
