Hello Math Families –
As I am new to Holy Rosary, I was unaware of the impact that Catholic Schools Week had on our schedule therefore my last update was inaccurate! Catholic Schools Week was a great success and tons of fun but this week we dive back into math. We will begin Ch. 2, Fractions, Decimals and Percents in our Unit Study of Ratios and Proportional Relationships. We will start the week studying the relationship of fractions and decimals and rewriting them, then move to rewriting percents as fractions and vice versa before finishing the week with percents and decimals.
We will begin Chapter 8, Facing Slavery. In this chapter students will learn about the Slave Trade from the West African perspective. In a series of real-life scenarios, students will discuss in small groups what they would do if faced with these dilemmas.
I am very proud of all the 5th grade participants in our 5-8 Spelling Bee! As we enter into the first week of February we will begin Lesson 11. There will be a spelling quiz for these words (no challenge words) on Friday February 8th.
Students did a fantastic job on their inventions. I saw many creative ideas and products! Students will take an Ecology quiz on lessons 1 & 2 in their textbooks next Tuesday. They have completed two study guides in class to help them prepare. Next, students begin lesson 3 in Ecology: How energy moves through an ecosystem. Students will discover what food chains, food webs and energy pyramids show about energy flow in an ecosystem.
