The Week of October 20, 2014

I'm sure you are wondering, "When will our playground be open again?"  We will be able to enjoy our newly refurbished playground Monday at recess!

Now that we have that out of the way, let's get down to business.  In math this week we will continue to use ratios.  This time, we will use them to covert between units of measurement.  Check out the following video I made for you about the skill:

Converting Units of Measurement using Equivalent Ratios

You will have measurement conversion homework to do Monday and Tuesday nights.  In addition, please complete a Compass Learning activity and a Google Classroom journal by Friday.  There will be a quiz on measurement conversion Thursday.  Use the following measurement table to help you with your conversions:

In science we will continue our work with ocean topography.  Please complete at least three choices on your "Go Fish" sheet.  These are due Friday.  In addition, don't forget to be studying nightly for your test on ocean topography that will take place on Friday.  You can use your notes and vocabulary sheet to help you prepare.  

Parent/Teacher conferences continue through this week.  I'm enjoying getting a chance to talk to everyone's families.  After-school math tutorial will NOT take place this week so I can hold conferences.  Tutorial will begin again next week.  

I will be attending a workshop in Augusta this Thursday and Friday.  I am expecting exceptional grace and courtesy when I am away.  I am asking the substitute to give me a detailed report of behaviors.  Please focus on your work, follow the procedures, and aid others who are having trouble remembering them.  

Enjoy your weekend,
Mr. Trent
