Thursday will be the test on Unit 5 - Long Division. Please see earlier post for test details. The test will also include a review of operations similar to Friday's quiz. This week's homework will have students focus on two things; word problems in long division and the operations they need to review based on Fridays quiz. For example, if a student missed the addition problem they will have an addition sheet to review. Students my want to do the packet by Thursday so they are ready for the test.
We are working on the division unit. This Friday's quiz will be a review of each operation, multi digit addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The unit test will be Thursday the 21st. This test will include:
We will be completing our unit on double digit multiplication and multi-step problem solving this week. We will have a quiz on Friday. I will return the quiz Tuesday and review the material. Wednesday we will have the unit test. We will be trying something new with this test - We will start the test in class on Wednesday, but it will be due on Friday. Students will have the extra time to complete the test at home. The test has several multi-step problems, so it may take more time to complete. We are working on these problems in class, so students can use their packs to study for the test.
The next math unit will introduce long division. We will have the pretest on Thursday of next week.
Thank you for the generous class gift and all the wonderful treats. You made me feel appreciated and very special. Thank you also for the added class funds, I'm busy dreaming up somespecial projects that will engage the students and get them excited about learning.
I gave students a thank you with an origami cicada, I've done this at new years for several years. The cicada is said to signify the transformation, or blossoming which it is every teachers joy to watch each year. I have also been told that they bring luck. If students wish to make a cicada this is the site I used for directions - https://www.origami-resource-center.com/origami-cicada.html
