January 22nd, 2018

Parents,

I hope everyone had a relaxing and
enjoyable weekend. The flu bug is moving around the school. Please remind your children to wash hands and keep hands away from their mouth and nose. I continue to remind the kids to sanitize whenever they can at school.


Please remind students to stay focused and keep talking to a minimum. Talking during lessons was not acceptable this week. We need to improve.


Eureka Math
We will continue to work with Module 5 Fractions. We continue to model fractions in order to compare fractions. We are also using benchmark fractions and finding common denominators.

Don't forget all students now have a log in and access to Zearn and Khan Academy math resources. The students may choose either program to use for homework practice.

Weekly homework should include working on Zearn and or Khan Academy at home a minimum of 3 times a week for at least 15 -20 minutes each night. This will improve skills taught during the Eureka Lesson. Please fill out your math tracker sheet and return on Mondays for a check in.

Please return your Eureka work book each day. Too many students are misplacing their books.

Feel free to visit youtube and search for Eureka module __ lesson __. You will find videos that will guide you on some of the problems from the lesson.
Module Tip sheets can be found in the downloads section of the webpage.
