Here are your new Hot Topics for the 3rd 9 weeks:
-Add and Subtract Fractions
-Multiplication with Fractions
Please complete these Hot Topics in the Louisiana Standards for 5th grade Math. This makes it easier to keep track of your best grades.
Hot Topic grades are due Wednesday, March 6th.
I hope everyone had a nice, relaxing break!
Today we passed out our new Math Workbooks. All homework from this point on will be found in the book labeled Module 3 & 4. For extra help at home, you can complete the blank pages in the Module 1 & 2 workbook.
Next week we will have our first Division Fluency Quiz. It will be set up just like the multiplication fluency quizzes. It's strictly just math facts 1-12. There will be 100 problems and students will have 4 minutes to complete it.
Next week students will be taking the LEAP 360 Interim. This is not for a grade. It just shows me what skills we still need to work on in class to be better prepared for the real test in May.
Because of the Interim Test, students WILL NOT HAVE A SKILLS REVIEW QUIZ next week.
After the Thanksgiving Break:
-Skills Review Quiz on Monday the 26th
-Multiplication Test on Wednesday the 28th
-Fluency Quiz on Thursday the 29th
The following Study Island lessons have been assigned as the 2nd 9 weeks' Hot Topics
-Division of Whole Numbers
To make it easier for Ms. Switzer, please access these lessons by going through LA Programs. All Hot Topics will be due at the end of the 9 weeks.
Fluency quizzes will remain the same for the 2nd 9 weeks. (100 multiplication facts 1-12 in 4 minutes) After Christmas break, fluency quizzes will change to 100 DIVISION facts in 4 minutes. Heads up.... ;)
We will have a test on Wednesday on the mental multiplication strategies the kiddos have learned/practiced so far in Module 2. It was originally a quiz scheduled for Tuesday, but since they are doing so well, I'm adding the last strategy and pushing it back a day as a test.
