Week of 5/13/19 - 5/17/19

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

Math:  Students will take their open note assessment over Topic 10 on Monday.  We will then begin Topic 11: Rates on Tuesday.  We will cover lessons 11-1: Unit Rates, 11-2: Unit Prices, and 11-4: Measurement & Ratios this week.  

  • Tuesday:  11-1 Close & Check
  • Wednesday: 11-1 HW
  • Thursday: 11-2 HW

* 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.   

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.   

Social Studies:  We will do our presentations of our Egyptian Pharaoh google slides on Monday.  This was our closing activity for our Egypt unit.   

Science:  Students will begin their Gravity Cruiser project this week!!!  The goal of this project is to have students design and build a toy cruiser that should travel at least 2-3 meters.  The project goals and teams will be established on Tuesday.  Groups will then begin designing the chassis (base) of their cruiser and how to attach the wheels so the chassis travels in a straight line.  Later in the week we will look at lever and support designs.  

** 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.
