This week we will be reviewing every standard from the 6th grade curriculum. Your child will be working on review materials in class as well as at home. Your child will have homework Monday through Thursday night. Most of their homework is multiple choice questions. If they are not coming up with the correct answer please have them ask questions during class. They are missing a step somewhere. Thank you for your support.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Spring Break!! School will be back in session on April the 7th.
One more week until a well deserved Spring Break for the students! We can do this!!
This week in math class we will be finish our Geometry Unit and beginning our Statistics Unit that will be completed upon coming back from Spring Break.

We are taking our Ratio and Proportions Test today. My students have worked really hard to prepare for this exam and so I am rewarding them with no homework this week! Enjoy the weather!!
This week we will be finish up our Proportions Unit and starting our study of Geometry!!
Here is what this week will look like for your child:
Monday: Review from last week, proportions activity and FINISH study guide for homework
Tuesday: Smartboard Skeeball Review over proportions
Wednesday: Proportions Test
Thursday: Area and Perimeter Scavenger Hunt Activity
Friday: PI DAY!!! We will do a short activity over the area of a circle and celebrate Pi Day. We do not cover the area of circle in the 6th grade but this is a formula that they should be able to solve due to our study of equations. We will finish the week with an area vs. perimeter quiz. This will be a very short assessment. Student learned this material in years past, so they should already be familiar with it.
Monday: Study Guide
Tuesday: Study for test and finish mixed review
Wednesday and Thursday: Mixed Review
If your child is failing or passing with a low C, I have input assignments into USA Test Prep for them to make up failed standards. Your child has the login information in their agenda.

Tuesday: Mixing Juice-Proportional Reasoning
Wednesday-Customary Measurement Conversions, Proportions Whiteboard practice
Thursday: Proportions Task Cards and Shadow Activity
Friday: ELT and Ratio and Unit Rate Task
We will have a multiple choice Proportions Assessment on Tuesday. Students will work on their study guide on Monday as well as play a review game. This will be a very short assessment as we have already assessed the first two parts of the unit.
