The end of the third quarter is on Thursday. Please encourage your student to check their binders and folders for any assignments or work they may have forgotten to turn in. All work must be turned in by the end of the quarter.
Sixth Grade Social Studies-- Students will finish the semester with an assessment on South America. Students will review for the assessment next week with review activities. Students will need to understand important places, important people and the cultural of the region. Students will take their assessment on Thursday, January 17 in the morning.
Sixth Grade Math— Students will have an assessment on chapter eight to end the semester. The assessment will cover section 1 through section 6. Surface area will not be on the assessment. The assessment will cover measurement systems, area and volume. Students will not be given a chart on the test, they should be practicing conversion units and formulas. The assessment will be on Wednesday, January 16 in the afternoon.
Seventh Grade Math— Students have been working through chapter seven. Students need to be proficient at fraction, decimal and percent conversions. They should have the benchmarks memorized and be able to use them to find multiples. Students also need to be able to write two step equations from word problems, manipulate them and solve them. These skills are found in the first half of chapter seven. Students will have a test on this material on Wednesday, January 16.
Eighth Grade Math--Students have been working on equations and graphing in chapter eight. The class will finish chapter eight next week with systems of equations. On Tuesday and Wednesday, students will review the material from chapter eight to prepare for their final test of the quarter. The test will be on Thursday, January 17 and will cover all the sections in chapter eight.
Algebra-- Students will spend the week reviewing material that will be on their exam. The exam will cover concepts from chapters one through seven. Students have been given a paper review and have access to many practice tests and quizzes online. None of the reviews are required, however I highly recommend practicing for the exam. I have spoken with the students about breaking up the material into chunks and doing a couple of chunks each night. Students will also need to use test taking strategies. There is a time restraint on the exam. Students need to utilize their time and be efficient to complete the exam in the allotted time. If students have questions they should see me prior to next week Thursday, the day of the exam.
