I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday. We are going to keep trucking through our standards in both math and social studies. We have 3 more full weeks of school before the semester is over.
This week, we are going to be reviewing for our social studies midterm. If you would like to help your child review at home, they need to read and understand all of the important concepts of Ancient Rome and Ancient Greece on pages 291-306. We will be reviewing them in class as well. The social studies midterm will be given on Friday 12/2.
In math, we are moving into a new concept. Today I am giving them a test to see where they are in math so far this year. Starting tomorrow, we will be beginning to work with numerical expressions and how the different properties, such as the distributive, commutative, and associative properties work. This will be our introduction into our algebra unit where we will be solving equations to find the value of a variable. Also, we will be graphing equations as well.
We will be taking the chapter 6 test on these concepts on Thursday, December 8. Before the three weeks is over, we will be reviewing previously taught concepts and be taking our district math assessment as well. I will keep you posted as the weeks go on.
