The Week of April 21, 2014

Wow, what a gloomy first day of holiday!  I hope the rain isn't giving you the blues.  Take this opportunity to relax and enjoy your day off.

Well, CRCT week is finally here!  This week we will be taking the Reading CRCT on Wednesday, the Language Arts on Thursday, and the Math on Friday.  Please check out the CRCR Review page of this blog for more information about the test and how you can best continue to prepare for them.

We will have just enough time to review our last topic in math before the test:  statistics.  We will be focusing on the following:

1.  Mean, median, mode, and range
2.  Box Plots (box and whisker plots)
3.  Mean absolute deviation

We will have plenty of time in class to review these together.  You will also have some time to log onto Compass Learning for some practice, too.  It is my hope that the last month of review has given you the confidence to do the best on Friday's test as you can.

In addition to our math activities, we will be starting our review of the science topics we've talked about this year.  We will use our "Putting It All Together" books to guide our review.  If you haven't done so already, please start looking through your PIN folder and refreshing yourself with the Earth science material you've investigated.  You may want to place emphasis on geology, since we've studied that at the very beginning of the year so long ago.  The science CRCT is next week, so our review will be much more concise than what it has been with math.

As if we don't have enough to think about, we must also get our song written for the musical.  Our goal will be to have a finished song by Friday!  If you are submitting an entry for the musical poster and ticket design, please give it to Ms. Tiia by Friday.

Enjoy the rest of your break,
Mr. Trent
