I apologize for the late post this week!
5th Grade Math – We are starting Unit 4 which covers multiplying and dividing fractions and whole numbers. This week, we will just be multiplying two fractions.

6th Grade Math – We are currently in Chapter 5 on Ratio. This week we are writing ratios to compare two quantities, making equivalent ratios, and simplifying ratios. Here’s an intro to ratios on Khan Academy: https://www.khanacademy.org/math/pre-algebra/pre-algebra-ratios-rates/pre-algebra-ratios-intro/v/ratios-intro
6th Grade Projects – We are studying Weather and Climate. The students are in groups researching the weather and climate of different parts of the United States, and are working to put that research into a weather report skit! They are enjoying the project and getting creative!
