Last week of School 2017-2018

We made it to the last week of school. Remember…we are dismissing students @ 1:30 pm on Tuesday, May 22nd and Wednesday, May 23rd.

This week in small group math we will be showing the movie Wall-E and looking for mathematics scenarios answering questions as we watch the film. Please email if you have questions.

Enjoy your summer and do not forget to review your math standards. It will make things less painful in the fall. Your brain is a muscle and if you don’t use it you will loose it!

Wrap up Unit 7 + MI testing

We have 18 days left of school! Let us finish strong with tenacity.

This week in small group math we will be finishing up any quizzes from Unit 7 and remedial pages if scored less than 80%, starting our Unit 7 project (summative grade), and completing the last Math Inventory (MI) testing. There will also be a Unit 7 retake option to those who scored less than a 75% on the Summative Assessment given last week. Students need to complete and turn in their Unit 7 Study Guide to retake.

Students will complete MI testing during class (May 2nd: Wednesday and May 3rd: Thursday) so please plan accordingly and be present. The purpose of the Math Inventory test is to track the progress of understanding of math concepts as students progress and get ready for high school and beyond. It tests students based on their ability to understand over 500 concepts of mathematics and helps teachers make informed decisions on instruction. Please see this document for more information: Math-Inventory-Overview-for-Parents

Tutoring: None this week (please email me if you wish your child to attend tutoring)

Retake: Unit 7 Summative Retake 5/4 @ 8:15 am
