Last week was our final week of new objectives in Math before the STAAR test, leaving this week wide open for review! Based on the STAAR practices that we have completed the last few weeks, I have pulled some objectives that I think warrant review. Your input is valuable, so please let me know if you noticed something in particular you think is worth reviewing before next Tuesday.
Last week we finished measurement with elapsed time and problem solving with money. We also reviewed working with a number line, as well as adding and subtracting decimals, double digit multiplication, and long division.
In our study of ecosystems, we created our own aquariums with 5 different living organisms. Students will research the organisms and observe them closely throughout the week. We will also build a terrarium with 6 different living organisms this week.
Homework will be more STAAR review and TTM practice. TTM has been going remarkably well and I am thrilled to see students using their points earned for donations to charity. Students are to complete 20 lessons by 4/21. I checked in with every student Friday to let them know their status.
