The Week of February 22, 2016

Are you ready for another action-packed week!?  I hope so, because our calendar is brimming with fun over the next few days!

In science we will continue our work with measures of central tendency (mean, median, and mode) by displaying these measures in graph form.  We will be working with the following:

Click on each of the tables/charts above to see an example of each.  You can get some more practice with mean, median, mode, and range doing the following (feel free to hand it in for me to check):

You will have homework Monday and Tuesday evening to complete.  Be sure to finish your two Compass Learning choices and your Google Classroom Journal by Friday.  All of these assignments will get you prepared for a quiz Thursday on graphing measures of central tendency.    Math tutorial will take place Monday and Wednesday from 3:15-4:00.

Our science studies will continue to be focusing on famous astronomers in history.  Use your study guide to help you prepare for Friday's test.  Your "Planetary Pathways" choice sheet a great way to guide your research.  Please complete three choices from the sheet by Friday.

It's also PTA Science week at Ellis!  Our PTA has organized a number of guest speakers to come into our classroom and talk about careers in science.  Let's give these visiting scientists a big Charles Ellis welcome!

This Friday is "Dress as your Favorite Montessori Material Day"!   I have a few ideas in mind...perhaps will I be a golden bead or a fraction piece.  Maybe I'll choose to dress up like a geometric solid or even a peace rose!  What are your ideas?

Have a wonderful weekend,
Mr. Trent
