Somehow we are already in Quarter 4! Report cards will be sent home with your student on Friday, and we will also be having the PBIS incentive for good behavior and the school store on Friday. As a reminder, we introduced a new Classcraft challenge last week, so students should be working hard to earn that XP!
Also as a reminder, please continue to check in with your student about their chromebook, homework/absent work, Classcraft, and if they have gotten any behavior referrals that need to be signed (or detentions to be served).
In math this week, we are working on connecting decimals, fractions, and percents with CPM lesson 3.1.3. This is a longer lesson than normal, so it will take us most of the week. Your student will have a homework assignment on Tuesday (3.1.3 Review Preview Part 1) and Thursday (3.1.3 Review Preview Part 2). If we have extra class time this week, we will work on a practice graph with sample science expo data, so students can see what kind of data they will need from their own project in order to create their graph. We will take one class period a couple weeks after break to work on their own data and graphs. If you student has not started their experiment yet, we are encouraging them to work on the experiment over break so that they have data for us to use in class.
In social studies, students were introduced to the create projects last week, which they will be working on both at home and at school. Their rough draft of the project is due this week and the final draft will be due Tuesday, April 2 (the second day back from spring break).
In spelling, we are finishing our current lists this week. Tic tac toe boards were due Friday, but we did not get our tests taken yet. The tests will now take place on the following days: today (Tuesday) will be the purple group, Wednesday will be the green group, and Thursday will be the gold group. If your student has not turned their tic tac toe boards in yet, please have them do so as soon as possible.
