The Week of January 7, 2013

It's our first full week back from the holiday, and I hope you're ready to hit the ground running!

In math we will be taking a look at one-step equations.  I'll give you a nice little booklet that will show you the secrets of solving these sometime tricky problems.  Be on the lookout for both classwork and homework assignments to help you practice this skill.  We will have a quiz on the information sometime next week.  In the meantime, check out this video to help you understand the concept:


In science we will have be focusing on Earth's atmosphere!  After a whole-class lesson on Monday, I will set you free to do your own research using the following choice sheet to guide your way.  It will be due next Friday.


Extreme Skydiving Choice Sheet

You will have a vocabulary quiz this Friday on the following words:


Atmosphere Vocabulary

These words are TRICKY!  Be sure you are practicing them nightly so you are ready for your quiz on Friday.

UPDATE:  Here's a video of Felix Baumgartner's death-defying extreme sky dive we talked about today!


Ms. Carol and I will be giving you your progress report on Monday.  In addition to your grades so far this term, it will include a conference sign-up form.  Please, sign, and return this to your homeroom teacher Tuesday.

Speaking of Tuesday, I will be at an important meeting all day.  I am expecting exemplary behavior while the substitute is in our classroom.

Finally, we will be celebrating out new playground on Friday when we attend the official ribbon cutting ceremony!

See you tomorrow,
Mr. Trent
