Math

Block 1- Module 2 Eureka Math is working with dividing fractions and decimals. We are off to a great start. We will be doing our winter diagnostic testing for math during our blocks on Wednesday the 13th. We only have until the 15th to complete this state required assessment and we do not get assessment days for winter and spring testing. I encourage your student attend class for this diagnostic as we don't have a lot of make up time.  We will try to wrap up our Veterinarian projects. Students have been building their clinics and learning about the cost of starting up such a business. Homework will always be written in their planners and may include Eureka practice, iReady, Math's Mates and projects.  If there is any questions, students should be including this information in their planner everyday.  

Block 2-   We have began Module 2 and studying division of fractions and decimals.  This block is a busy time for students coming in and out of the class for them to get their learning needs met. We will be doing our winter diagnostic testing for math during our blocks on Wednesday the 13th. We only have until the 15th to complete this state required assessment and we do not get assessment days for winter and spring testing. I encourage your student attend class for this diagnostic as we don't have a lot of make up time.  Students are doing Math's Mate problems for homework and several are also doing a Math Review each day for Mrs. Anton, Mrs. Kofton and for me.  All students in this block should be doing at least ten minutes of math fact practices for homework M-Th.  Your student may see iReady as homework as well.  This homework will be written in their planners based on what each student accomplished during our math time that day and their needs.  Please be sure to check your student's planner regularly to ensure they are doing what is needed for homework.

Block 3-    Students in this block have began Module 2 in Eureka Math working with dividing fractions and decimals. We will be doing our winter diagnostic testing for math during our blocks on Wednesday the 13th. We only have until the 15th to complete this state required assessment and we do not get assessment days for winter and spring testing. I encourage your student attend class for this diagnostic as we don't have a lot of make up time.   We will try to wrap up our Veterinarian projects as well. Students have been building their clinics and learning about the cost of starting up such a business.

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.
