What are we working on?




General Notes:

Please look for your group and make note of due dates and plan ahead weekly. These assignments are not meant to be homework or "extra" work. As much as possible students should work on these assignments during RTI blocks or during the core curriculum independent work time. For example, math assignments should be completed during RTI OR during math time when appropriate classwork is finished. It is intended that students in the groups will not have to do classwork or practice work which they have already mastered, therefore using the enrichment work in place of classwork as determined by the teacher and GT coordinator.

5th grade:  Fifth graders are working on ratios, rates and proportions in math. Each student has an individualized pathway based on a pretest. Ask them about math warm ups in Mrs. Hastedt's class. 
For project time they are analyzing a famous quote and creating a representation.  Ask your child which quote he/she chose.





6th grade: The 6th graders are working on ratios and proportions in math. Each student has an individualized pathway based on a pretest.
Ask them about math warm ups in Mrs. Hastedt's class. 

For project time, students are creating a musical parody of the Beatles song "Help".  They will create a unique way to share.
Each Friday in project time we are studying a new Ted Talk.  We watch the talk as a group and discuss and then the students have a week to submit written responses to a series of questions about the Ted Talk.  The first is due 9/15/17
Second semester 6th graders will research, plan and present their own Ted Talk to the group.
