The Week of January 13, 2014

This week is shaping up to be a good one in our classroom!

In math, we will start our geometry studies by exploring area of rectangles, squares, parallelograms, and triangles.

Interactive Area Practice Website

We will have a lot of practice in class using tangram pieces and other manipulatives to practice this skill.  Be sure to complete your two homework assignments and your Compass Learning activity so you are ready for a quiz on Thursday.  It's also time to take the MAP test again.  We will use your score on this administration of the test to show growth from the beginning of the year.  Be sure to try your best.  Remember, this test is not graded, but we will share your results with you and your family the the upcoming parent/teacher/student conferences.

In science, we will continue our studies of the Earth's atmosphere.  Use your work time to complete your "Extreme Skydiving" choice sheet and to prepare for Friday's test.

Report cards will be sent home Tuesday.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

This Friday is another dress down day!  It costs a dollar to do so, and all the proceeds will go to Ellis Athletics.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,
Mr. Trent
