Class Information

Math: We will doing a short unit on algebra before we spend a few days reviewing for the Math MCA test.  MCA Math will befing on April 18. 

Practice IXL.com and Study Island categories are listed below.   Math homework is pretty consistent.  Each week the students will have 4-5 Math Box pages to work on in their journals.  We go over each box at some point throughout the week.  I encourage students to attempt the boxes they feel confident in doing at home or with a little help and leave any boxes that are causing frustration for school.  Study Links are on the iPads this year.  Students are provided work time during the day for study links.  Study Links will only be homework if they were not completed during class.   Due Dates for Math Boxes and Study Links will always be posted below.

Reading: We are currently reviewing for the MCA reading test. Students will take the test April 4th-6th and April 9th-10th. It is very helpful if students get a good night's sleep and eat a good breakfast during testing. 

Science:  Research for Forces and Motion is due Wednesday, March 28th.  Final Projects are due Friday, April 6th.  If students are not done with their research tomorrow they will need to complete it over break so they can use next week to work on their project.  They have had two weeks to work on their research in class.  Students are choosing final projects like Rube Goldberg Machines, sports or real life connections or creating their own.   It is amazing to see what they are already coming up with.  

Social Studies:   

Writing:  We are going to be working on Persuasive Writing.
