Hello Families!

5th grade math: This week we will continue to develop our understanding of fraction operations. We showed success last week adding and subtracting fractions and mixed numbers. We will moving into multiplying whole numbers by fractions and mixed numbers this week. Here are some videos to accompany the skill: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HiNrFT280_Y https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcetv-5QDww

6th grade math: The students will close out Chapter 3 on Monday, with their Chapter 3 Test. We will jump into Chapter 4 on Tuesday. We will be investigating positive and negative integers and how they are presented in real life (ex. -23 degrees F, -1 par in golf, +2,347 ft above sea level). We will also take a look at placing positive and negative numbers on horizontal and vertical number lines, as well as investigate the absolute value of numbers. Here is a video to help with absolute value: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrof6Dw63Es

6th grade projects: The landform presentations were terrific! Thank you for all those who stopped in. We also were able to present to our second grade friends in Ms. Garcia’s class. We will be jumping into Unit 3: Weather and Climate this week. We will begin to investigate what weather is, air masses, and fronts.
