This week we have been working with fractions! Because of Courage to Stand that takes place and other events coming up, we will most likely not have our normal Centers Schedule until the new year. Here is what we will be working on next week.
MONDAY: Students will be learning how to create equivalent fractions by finding the lowest common multiple and multiplying the numerators and denominators.
TUESDAY: Continue to work with equivalent fractions.
WEDNESDAY: Students will be learning how to simplify fractions by dividing the numerator and denominators.
THURSDAY: Continue to work with simplifying fractions.
FRIDAY: WRITING BENCHMARK!!! If time allows for us to switch, students will complete a quick fractions assessment. Students will be assessed on Fractions on a number line, identifying fractions, unit fractions, and decomposing fractions. If we have extra time we will play Around the World! If we aren't able to switch, we will do the quick assessment on Monday.
That is it for now! Have a wonderful weekend!
Good morning wonderful families! I wanted to send you guys a quick email and let you know that your students will NOT be bringing home math homework for the weeks leading up to the break. I want to give your students the opportunity to focus instead on science fair projects, reading homework, and spending time doing fun things as a family! We will be sending home another extra credit opportunity for students to practice over the break and I will also still post extra practice on my webpage. I realize this is a crazy busy month and hopefully this will help alleviate some stress 😊!! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Hello wonderful families! I hope you all had a great Halloween! It has been a crazy busy October and I'm thankful November is now here and things can hopefully calm down a little! This week I gave students the week to get caught up on all of their work and get everything turned in. If your student wasn't able to complete their work that was due today, they will be bringing it home to complete. I've extended our Division Unit a little bit in order to insure that students are really understanding the skills and steps. Next week we won't have centers because of our Symphony Field trip. We will do other hands-on activities instead. Here is what I have planned...
MONDAY: Interpreting Remainders - Students determine if they need to round, drop, or share the remainder depending on what the problem is asking us. Students will receive their homework for the week TODAY and it is due on FRIDAY.
TUESDAY: Students will continue to Interpret Remainders.
WEDNESDAY: Today students will review division skills.
THURSDAY: Continue to Review Division
FRIDAY: FIELD TRIP!!!
More Interpreting Remainders

MONDAY: Students will continue to learn the steps for Standard Division and practice the steps.
TUESDAY: Students will be taking a GATE Assessment and the focus during our class will be STEM.
THURSDAY: We will continue working with Standard Division and we will begin to analyze what to do with remainders.

Hello wonderful families! Hope you had a terrific week. I'm thankful for rain, but ready to enjoy the sunshine again! Since next week it looks like MORE rain and MORE indoor recess, I told the class they could bring in card and board games to do during indoor recesses. Hopefully we will luck out and not have to use them!
In math, we will continue to review and work with Multiplication as we move on to division! Here is what I have planned:
MONDAY: Students will learn about the "Forgiving Method" also known as Partial Quotients.
TUESDAY: Students will practice using the Forgiving Method.
WEDNESDAY: Students will learn standard long division. We will only divide up to a 4 digit number by a 1 digit number.

Today felt like CHRISTMAS!!!!! It started with Gaby's family bringing in items for our iPads and then this afternoon THE IPADS ARRIVED!!!! I'm hoping to get them set up and running in the next couple of weeks. If you would like to donate an ipad case for our classroom, I have them posted on our Amazon Wishlist! Thank you again to all of you who helped to fund this project. The students will be working on our Thank-You package soon. Your help and support are so very much appreciated!!!
