The Week of February 23, 2015

Happy International Montessori Week!  I hope you will take some time over the next few days to think about how the Montessori philosophy has influenced your life.  We will be doing a few fun things this week to celebrate. First, we will have a Peace Pole celebration Wednesday.  You can also dress as your favorite Montessori material on Friday!

We will continue our work with interpreting data this week in math.  The measures of central tendencies (mean, median, mode, and range) we introduced last week will help us decipher hidden meanings in groups of numbers.  More specifically, we will look at how we can interpret data found in graphs.  The following text will help you better understand this concept. 



You will have homework Monday and Tuesday night to complete.  Your weekly Compass Learning assuagement (due Friday) will also focus on measures of central tendency.  In addition, don't forget to complete your journal assignment.  It is found on your Google Classroom page, and will be due Friday.

In science, we will continue getting to know the famous astronomers that were introduced you to last week.  Use your "Planetary Pathways" choice sheet to guide your studies.  Three choices from the sheet will be due Friday.  You will also have a test on the astronomers Friday.  Use your study guide to help you prepare.

If your family has not completed the Parent Climate Survey, please do so by the end of the week.

Enjoy your weekend,
Mr. Trent
