Welcome Back!
 
Mrs. Abernathy (6th grade math)~ 
We had a great turn out for open house.  Thank you to those that we able to stop by.  To those that couldn't make it, I look forward to meeting you Tuesday.  
Our plan for the week includes setting expectations, routines, and getting to know each other as we get our supplies organized and our brains ready to tackle 6th grade math curriculum.  If you are in my 1/2 class or my 5/6 class, Miss Brady will be my coteacher during those blocks.  This week we will be logging in to googleclassroom  so that students may use it at home, if extra practice is needed.  We will use googleclassroom almost everyday to evaluate, review, practice, and assess...sometimes in the form of play.  Please note that starting next week, students will have homework in math nightly.  We will begin it in class, but students are asked to complete it at home.  The math materials are different from what students are used to.  The books are in paperback form, but students do NOT write in them.  There will be notes given in class to assist with homework.  They can be found in the binder that will house all math materials, including the book we are studying.  The homework problems will be found in the book and are located in a section called ACE (applications, connections, extensions) at the conclusion of each Investigation (lesson).  The assignment given will be numbered so that the homework can be found in the book.  It takes some time, but students pick it up quickly.  Just be sure they are writing on paper and not in the book.  I will use a couple problems to assess how we are doing, but most of the homework is graded on completion (10 points per night).

  Options to stay fresh this school year on all skills by spending a little time playing some posted games on googleclassroom.  There are a few that are useful throughout the year...cram (vocabulary), fact practice, mobymax, prodigy, and I will post reviews on edulastic.  Feel free to spend a little extra time at home.  Practice makes permanent!
Looking forward to a great year!

We have started our new book Data About Us.  The objective of this book is to understand and use the process of statistical investigation.  They will construct and analyze distributions of data by comparing data distributions by using what they know about measures of center and spread.  This is our last book of the year! Please encourage your child to stay focused during class and continue to work hard on all of their assignments through the end of the year.


Upcoming tests and quizzes are listed below.  Make sure your child is studying at home!

Quiz 1: Friday, May 10th

Final Test: Tuesday, May 21st

*All dates are subject to change and will be updated on the website*

We are currently reviewing our standards in preparation for the AIR test on Tuesday, April 30. 
There will be no assessments until after testing is over.  We will continue practicing during class and there will be small homework assignments.  
 
As always, practicing math facts is beneficial.
