Math, Science, and Social Studies
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.
- Wednesday: Compound WS
