Week of 1/14/19 - 1/18/19

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

Math:  Students will take their Topic 5 test on Monday.  We will then begin Topic 6: Dividing Fractions.  We will work through lessons 6-1: Dividing Fractions & Whole Numbers and begin lesson 6-2: Dividing Unit Fractions by Unit Fractions.  Students will also take their second benchmark test with AIMSWEB this week and continue to work on their basic multiplication, division, fraction, and geometry skills in centers.

* 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.   


  • Monday: Topic 5 test
  • Friday: 6-1 homework

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 continue to learn about the first civilization in Sumer.  Students will compare material from their reading packet to the information in the book, take notes, and review for their Lesson 1 quiz.      


  • Monday: Exit Slip (if not finished in class)
  • Tuesday: Lesson 1 ws
  • Friday: Lesson 1 Quiz

Big 6:   Students have their topics approved for their research project!!! There are some really interesting topics this year - I can't wait to see what the children learn and can teach me when I read them!  This week we will discuss reliable resources and students will have time in the computer lab to get some online sources and print them out.

** 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.
