Week At A Glance 9/11 to 9/15

It has been awesome to be back with my classes this week. We have been working hard in class this week on stations practicing Scientific Notation, Mean Absolute Deviation and the Real Number System.
 
Our Week at a Glance for 9/11 to 9/15
Monday: We will review the real number system and practice identify random samples. Homework for week 3 will be passed out. 
Tuesday: Our class will review for our Unit 1 and 2 test. Study guides for the test should be completed before students come to class. 
Wednesday: Unit 1 and 2 test
Thursday and Friday: We will begin ordering real numbers. This topic is heavily tested on the STAAR test.
 
If your child needs additional practice on any of the topics we are covering in class, there is a link on my webpage for additional practice in each topic. This is a great resource for students who need extra help. There is also a calendar on my webpage for our class. I am working on creating links in the calendar with the resources we are using in class. 
 
Tutorials
There are tutorials each morning during homeroom until 7:45 am. Students may ask for a pass to come to my classroom and get additional help. 
There are also math tutorials each day after school (except Wednesday) in room 315 until 3:15 pm. 
I will hold a Test Review in my classroom after school on Tuesday until 3:15 for any students who would like to attend.
 
Open House has been rescheduled for Wednesday 9/27. I look forward to meeting you then.
