Homework

 

 

Important General Information

Appropriately return any needed school forms, once they have been filled out appropriately

June's theme for our school is safety

There was ..."No Homework (due to S.B.A.C. & i-ready testing) May 10-24th, only."

"Field Day" was June 10th-day of fun ('__').  

"Decade Day"  was a school spirit day, on June 3rd (Optional-dressed reflecting your favorite decade).   

 One of our students earned the honor of being able to participate in the state level "spelling bee", for 4th-8th graders, on March 27th.  She won 5th place on that date, while competing against the rest of the state's best spellers (again,...Grades 4-8)!  Well done, young person ('__')!

Spelling  

 

Due Date: June 16th, 2022 

       Complete "Sorting Your Words" appropriately.   Use your words for "Quiz # 33", to catergorize and classify them.          

         Reminder: Make sure that each word's spelling is correct, before you put the work away.  Check your words for patterns that are similar.      '__'    

         Be prepared for Thursday's possible (Thurs.-"6/16"/22) quiz on those words.   

            

           

 Math  

Due date:  June 16th, 2022

We completed Unit 4 + 5 (Chp. 8 + 9) Comparing Fractions, Understanding Decimal Notation, and Building Understanding of Addition, Subtraction, and Multiplication of Fractions:   The unit we finished (Unit 4) was mostly about comparing fractions and understanding decimal notation. The chapter (Chp. 9) focused on building and using that knowledge to do many tasks such as: relating tenths and decimals; relating hundredths and decimals; equivalent fractions and decimals; also, relating fractions, decimals, and money; problem solving, with money; adding fractional parts of 10 and 100; and comparing decimals.  We are now covering geometry and measurements-key concepts from Units 6-8: Chps. 10 -13.

   Please finish, G.M.-Volume 1, pg. 310, #1-5 only; #6 is an "optional" challenge problem (...a review of previous concepts learned); Refer to your notes (that are in your "Math Journal"), or other appropriate resources, as needed.     

   Also, keep practicing your basic multiplication math facts.   Keep using the cards we made, the way I (Mr. Miller) showed you, to do so.  Many of our class's students are still practicing "2-3s"; ...some of our class's students are now on the "3-4s";  also, some are on "0-4s", some are now on "4-5s", and some are now on "0-5s", and some are  on "5-6s"; we also have some on "0-6s"; we also have some on" 6-7"s ...and mastery and beyond, this week. '__'

   Again, practice your assigned multiplication basic facts.  You will be quizzed on your specific math facts,  possibly on Thursday (Thurs.-"June 16th", 2022).
