Week of April 1 – 5, 2019

Science Benchmark is tomorrow. Students should be finishing their Study Guides to turn in tomorrow. Remember, you do not have to print. They may turn in their proof paper to show they completed it. If your child does not have this option or would like another method, they may use the 3NW note packet (gold packet). These note packets are also in STAR under Science Review. All material in it may be on the test, as well as weak questions from tests #1 and #2. Please make sure your child is prepared as this also affects them individually, as a grade level, and as a subject. We are the only grade level taking Science for the State. 

Math

Monday – Text p.482 (Set A)

Tuesday – None

Wednesday – p.482 (Set B)

Thursday – p.482 (Set C)

Week of 2/25 – 3/1

Math – Content-wise, this is a busy week in Math. We will have a quick quiz today on 5.9 Metric Conversion. We will do a review before. Tomorrow we will start a three day lesson on 5.10 Circles. That quiz will be on Thursday before or after the field trip to KFHS for the Symphony visit. Friday we will begin 5.12 Angle Types. Check STAR and IXL for practice and particulars about each SOL.

Monday – None

Tuesday – Label a paper plate (or drawn circle) with circle parts and formulas. We use the estimate of about 3 diameters equal circumference. They need to know diameter, radius, center, circumference, and chord. They also need to know the relationships of each. For example 2 radii =diameter.

Wednesday – Create 5 circles with varying lengths of diameters. Label. Calculate the circumference and radii for each.

Thursday – None

Science – Begin reviewing notes on 5.6 Oceans and 5.7 Earth from 3NW Packets. Also check STAR for Packets and review information.
