I have added a new feature to our classroom website. In addition to the general Resources tab, I have also added a tab called Resources by Chapter. In this section of the website, you will find resources specific to each standard we cover in math class. These pages will include videos, worksheets, vocabulary, and anything else I can find to support the students' success.
This week students will be starting the Ratios chapter. We will begin with vocab on Wednesday and some basic introductory ratio concepts on Thursday. Students will get their first homework over this material Wednesday which is due Friday in order to take the quiz.
Students will also be given additional opportunities to show mastery of these Decimal Fluency skills on Exit Tickets throughout the week. The Performance Task (4.0 opportunity) will be given on Thursday during the shortened day schedule. Please be sure your students are in attendance to take the performance task for this chapter.
Also, I just wanted to give another friendly reminder that Parent-Teacher conferences are this Wednesday from 4-7pm and Thursday from 1-7pm. I will have your child's Decimal Fluency score for you at that time, even though it will not be reflected on their First Quarter grade card. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Because I will be gone in the afternoon this Friday, the weekly quiz will be moved up to Thursday with homework being moved up to Tuesday. On Friday, the students will be reviewing multiplying and dividing fractions with the sub to ensure they still remember previous chapters.
We are incorporating a new online resource today in math class. Learn more about it here!
Be sure to check out my EduCreations videos that I'm posting on our classroom website! They are examples of how to do each skill on our new Decimal Fluency checklist. I will update these as we learn new skills.
Each week a "Ticket to Test" will be assigned on Wednesday and will be due on Friday. Each Friday will be a weekly quiz over the week's material.
