This week we are reviewing more of Soft C and Soft G. There are a few challenging words this week and it is hard to know what sound to use with c or g in the middle of a word like angel or cancel! We are discussing not only the spelling, but the meanings of words to increase our knowledge of vocabulary. Please remind them to be reading the stories I send home (usually one on Monday and another on Wed/Thurs.) along with other readings up to 30 minutes each night as well as to study their red words.
This week, we are continuing in the integer world of absolute values, positive and negative numbers. By the end of this week, we will be mastering not only adding and subtracting negative and positive numbers, but we will be multiplying and dividing them and knowing which sign to keep! Be sure to ask them some of the rules they are learning and see their interactive notebooks. Also, ask to check their vocabulary lists weekly as we make vocabulary a part of our everyday math journey.
The list below includes upcoming quizzes and tests this week. We will spend all day before test day in review and they will have a study sheet completed in class and for homework with all of the information to study along with their Interactive Notebook.
9-14-16 - Wednesday - Ch. 2 Vocab Quiz
9-16-16 - Friday - Ch. 2 Test (depending on everyone's progress)
I am so proud of how the class did on their Ch. 1 tests! You can keep all math papers, but please sign and return the test.
Please encourage your student to come see me from 7:45am - 8:15am for extra help if needed!
