Students have been hard at work this week mastering comparing and rounding with decimals. They have really stepped up to the challenge that is math in 5th grade, and they are doing wonderfully. Today we are taking our first mid module assessment.
Next week we will be focusing on adding, subtracting, and multiplying with decimals. Students can review, and get ahead of what we are doing in class using the following websites:
In Science, we wrapped up our unit on the scientific method this week. Today, students are taking an open note quiz on the scientific method. The students have shown great interest in science, and I’m really enjoying being able to go more in depth with them everyday. Next week we begin a review unit on rocks and minerals. Students will be able to look at rock and mineral samples up close, and we will talk about characteristics of minerals, and the different types of rocks.
