Week of 11/26/18 - 11/30/18

 ** All activities and assignments are tentative and projected. **

Math:  Students will have their 1st trimester Liescke Loot auction on Monday!  Before spending their loot on prizes they will calculate tax on their earnings!  Students will get back their Topic 3 exit assessment.  Many kids struggled with this open-note assessment.  Some time will be spent reviewing the questions and concepts in class and then if needed very little time to begin a redo.

We will then move on to lesson 4-2: Analyzing Patterns with Tables & Graphs and lesson 4-3: Relating Tables & Graphs to Equations.  These concepts seem to newer to the students, so whole-group instruction with lots of in-class practice will be done.  

* In my class I have the students reach 100% fluency with the Reflex program (0-12 multiplication & division).  Then they are allowed to practice with Prodigy.  It is a Common-Core skilled based program.  I will be using the Aimsweb reports to individualize the practice on Prodigy in areas which they scored lowest on Aims.   


  • Thursday: 4-2 Exit HW

Students will usually be working in small groups in class.  I hope to individual a bit more as I get to know the students and where their strengths and weaknesses are in math.  In groups students will practice their basic multiplication and division facts with Reflex (an online game-based tool that you can use at home too!), curriculum skills with Prodigy(also usable at home!), math magazines, and other various review and pre-view skill work.   


Science:   Students will be introduced to the element project on Monday!  They will choose an element to research and then choose a project to represent information about the project.  We will begin researching and filling out the Info WS in class.  The remainder of the work and project will be completed at home.  Projects are due December 10th.  Please look for description of project choices and a rubric on how projects are graded.
We will continue learning about elements and how they form compounds, mixtures and solutions in lesson 3 in the text (chapter 14).  We will lead together in class and discuss and take notes.    


  • Wednesday:  Compound WS
  • Monday 12/10: Element Project

** Please note that in science and social studies we usually do not work directly from the textbook.  All our activities and learning go along and correlate with the text though.  We are in chapter 14 in science.
