On Tuesday and Wednesday, we are preparing for the April 25 and April 26 Air test, by going over practice questions that have been released by the Ohio Dept. of Education. It will help your students if they work on some Study Island math at home. I will give homework Tuesday night, but not Wednesday or Thursday.
Parents: If you are looking at videos, we are working on Module 5 lessons 6-7 I know that the math we are doing this year can be a little confusing. Therefore I am including this link to videos that show how each lesson is to be done. There is a short 7-18 minute video explaining each lesson. It will help you see what your child is doing in school and is good review at home each evening for your student. To get a menu of videos, click Here .
Typically I give math homework every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. I do not give homework on Friday's because I want students to relax on the weekend. It is fine with me if students only spend 20 minutes on math homework each evening. If they are unable to finish in twenty minutes I would like them to have a parent sign the paper so I know they did work for at least twenty minutes.
Example: 5 and 2/5 plus 2 and 3/5. Add the whole numbers and get 7. Add the fractions and get 5/5 or 1. The answer is 8.
