Hello Kiddos,

Today was the day you took the second part of the Math Milestones.  I did not get to see all of you today, but I did see Block 3, Block 4, and Block 5.  Block 3 – The challenge we started in class today is not homework, I will give you about 20 minutes of class tomorrow to keep working.  Block 4 and 5 – the challenge we started today in class is not homework, but if you want your entry to be considered for the prize it is due Thursday.  I will not be giving any more time in class to block 4 or 5.

If I did not see you today, I can’t wait to see you tomorrow.  We will be back to a normal schedule. 🙂

Hello Kiddos,

Today in class we reviewed some 6th grade math from unit 3.  Tonight there is no paper homework, but I would like you to keep reviewing for the Milestone using either Prodigy or Quizizz.  Here is a link and a game code for some Quizizz practice.  If you prefer Prodigy then just keep going with your quest.

See you tomorrow. Make sure you have your dry erase marker with you.

Hello Mathies,

Today in blocks 1, 3, 4, and 5 we reviewed for the Unit 7 assessment tomorrow.  Here is a link that you can use to prepare.

https://join.quizizz.com/ game code is 032297.

In block 2 we started adding and subtracting positive and negative integers.  Homework tonight is to complete the number line integer addition and subtraction problems. Please use the number line to model the solution.  It will help to build your number sense of positive and negative integers.

See you tomorrow. 🙂

There is NO math tutoring tomorrow morning. 

Hello Kiddos,

Today’s schedule was a little nutty, and I did not see all of you.  Of the students I did see, I surveyed them about their experience with Prodigy.  About 10% of the students using prodigy like it (a lot), and the rest of the students are not enjoying it as much.  The point of playing Prodigy is to review concepts from previous units in preparation for the Milestone test.  So, I came up with a compromise.

If you like Prodigy, then please keep using it.  I assigned a Milestone Review to all blocks, so as you progress through challenges you will be presented with questions from all the previous units.  Playing for about 10 minutes a day should give you enough time to get through the challenge.  If you do not like Prodigy, then don’t feel like you need to keep trying to like it.  I made a quizizz that you can play to review fraction division and decimal arithmetic.  Here is the link: https://join.quizizz.com/ and the game code is: 955476.  I do not expect you to do both of these, but pick the one you like best to practice.

If you are choosing the quizizz, I will make and post codes to quizziz for each unit.  I know I won’t get to that today, so just start with the one I posted, but I will post other links tomorrow for you to use as you see fit.

See you soon! 🙂

Hello Kiddos,

Tonight’s homework is to go to https://play.prodigygame.com/ and join a class if you have not already done that.  Once you are there (all logged in and everything), I have assigned you 15 problems to review fraction division.  I am sure you can find it, you are the “digital generation.” 🙂 Let me know how it goes tomorrow.

B LOCK 1: 95C27D

BLOCK 2: DE47AE

BLCOK 3: 92323D

BLOCK 4: 6C54FF

BLOCK 5: 06F17F (this is the right code)

See you tomorrow, kiddos!

Hello Mathies,

Homework tonight is to go to https://play.prodigygame.com/ and join a class.  Class codes are below.  You could probably copy and paste your class code into the browser.

BLOCK 1: 95C27D

BLOCK 2: DE47AE

BLCOK 3: 92323D

BLOCK 4: 6C54FF

BLOCK 5: 06F17F OR O6FI7F (I think it is the first code, which has a ZERO as the first digit.  If that does not work, try the second code, which has the letter O as the first digit).

See you tomorrow. 🙂
