Students were given a math mad minutes package today. This package is for students to work on daily practice. Spending 1-5 minutes a day of timed review would be great! We did one in class and students were given 1 minute for 30 questions. The packages do not need to come back to school.
Students have started their science unit on Forces and Machines. Today and tomorrow in class students will be creating flip books that have information on simple machines. On Wednesday January 18th, students will be asked to tell me the 6 simple machines, an example for each and the definition. The assignment we are doing today and tomorrow has all the information they need and they are encouraged to study nightly.
Students will also be given multiplicaiton and long division questions to review. We will continue these math topics all year with bi-weekly review assignments.
