What are we learning this week?
Math: We will take our Chapter 10 math test and a math benchmark test this week. The students are doing a fantastic job with thinking flexibly in math! Again, a lot of our math tests involve a lot of reading comprehension so using interactive “think notes” really helps students to apply the math that they know with the word problems. Homework continues to include a few basis addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems where students must show work. These are non-calculator problems. Otherwise, students are permitted to use calculators on the remainder of the spiral review questions.
Word Study: Word study tests will be coming home in Monday folders. Our next test is scheduled for Friday. Students have their features written in at the top of their parent signature sheets.
Science: We will continue to learn about electromagnets and begin to explore types of energy!
