Block 1- The students are settling in to our math routine. We are working on Rates and Ratios. We are explores the different ways we can own our learning and how we learn.  The students are doing a great job with the lessons and are very engaged during class time.  We should be taking the mid module assessment at the end of this week. We spend 15-20 minutes on iReady lessons in class.  iReady is our computer math program that monitors students strengths and weaknesses and provides lessons to meet each individual's needs.  

Block 2-  . The students have been working real hard learning Rates and Ratios.  We are learning how to use tape diagrams, ratio charts and double number lines as a visual to support the learning of equivalent ratios and solving real-world math problems. We will continue with this, as well as hit important skills students show they are needing more work on or building on skills mastered shown with the data from iReady, the pretest, and day to day quick checks on addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. All students in this block should be doing at least ten minutes of math fact practices for homework M-Th.  The knowing of math facts is so very important moving on and up in math.  Please encourage and/or do math facts with your students every night. This block with begin new homework of Maths Mates.  It is a worksheet covering many math concepts of 24 problems and the homework will be 6 problems a night.

Block 3-     Students are learning some new math language related to rates and ratios, and learning how to use tape diagrams and ratio charts to find equivalent ratios and solve real-world math problems.  We will continue with this as well as hit important skills students show they are needing or working at building on skills mastered shown with the data from iReady, the pretest, and day to day quick checks on addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Students in this block should be doing at least ten minutes of math fact practices each night M-Th.  The knowing of math facts is so very important moving on and up in math.  Please encourage and/or do math facts with your students every night. This block with begin new homework of Maths Mates.  It is a worksheet covering many math concepts of 24 problems and the homework will be 6 problems a night.


Homework

Homework for math should always be purposeful.  Homework will look differently from day to day depending on the skills the student is working on and the work being done in the classroom. Please always check your students planner to see what his/her homework is for that day.  iReady is an intricate resource we use to help fill in 'gaps' in students' math skills, as well as challenging those students who are ready to move to higher levels of math skills.  Please let me know if this as homework will be an issue for your student.  Students will need access to a computer for homework at times. We will also be using Khan Academy, Zearn Learning, Embarc and Virtual Nerd, in which all students have set up accounts on this year.  Technology is important to what we are doing in math.
