Science Test and Math quiz on APV

We will end our Oceans unit on Thursday with an open book test. Make sure students bring all notes to class and review content of 3NW packet covering Oceans. They will have access to notes.

I have also changed the date of the Math quiz from today to tomorrow. Decided to spend a day on general concepts. We will quiz tomorrow. Sorry if this caused any issues.

Change in tonight’s Math HW

I am dropping tonight’s Math HW to spend an extra day on each skill. All other Math HW will remain. Those in Harris’ class did not officially receive last night’s assignment, so I am making that tonight for them. All those who have already done this have no Math HW tonight.

Science – Ocean Floor projects

I have sent home the criteria for the Science projects. They can be done as either a power point/report or a model of the ocean floor. Students can choose the grade they want by the amount of information they include. Please read over the criteria for the project. All projects are due on February 15th. This is the day of our Parent-Teacher Conferences. Parents may bring them to conference appointments, drop them off that day (if no appointment is made), or turn them in on Thursday, February 14th. Please guide your child in constructing this project to make sure it is done in a timely manner. Let me know if you have any questions about this project.

Week of 1/28 – 2/1, 2019

We begin our 3rd nine weeks today. We will continue to learn new skills and talents, but we will also keep reviving earlier skills to keep them fresh. Nightly review using IXL, HW practice, and STAR are great ways to accomplish this.

Math

Monday – Text p.458 (Set A)

Tuesday – None

Wednesday – Text p.459 (Set D)

Thursday – Text p.442 (10, 11)

Starting next week we will begin using the weekly grids for Science review. Students are to complete 4 nightly questions Monday – Thursday nights. The completed Science Daily Review is due on Fridays. On some weeks there will be a quiz using some of the questions from that week. Any questions that your child doesn’t know/remember, can use resources to assist. Note packets, google, or ask me at school. I will assist with any material that is just a bit ahead of our pacing. Thanks in advance for monitoring your child’s education from home.

Thanks for all you do at home to help your child at school.
