All grades from fifth through eighth take a cumulative assessment at the end of the year. We have been reviewing for this assessment and students will take this test at the end of May. In addition to a review of the common core standards for sixth grade, students have been working on our last Module 16, which is on statistical data displays and analysis. Students will be creating histograms, dot plots, and box plots to shows how the math skills they have learned in class, can be used in real-world situations.
In getting ready for seventh grade we have started to review concepts they have learned this year and how they will develop for next year. The book for next year is the same format as what was used in sixth grade. This should make the transition into seventh-grade math easier.
All students from fourth through seventh grade will get a summer math packet to complete. These will be distributed at the end of May. These are taken for a grade and will be collected when they return in the fall. Students that practice their math skills over the summer do better when they return in the fall. Details for the summer math will be given at the end of the month.
Thank you to all of you for your continued support at home with math. I feel that teaching is teamwork and working together helps your child to succeed in the classroom. Thank you for all that you do! I have enjoyed working with your children for the past two years. They are a blessing to me and I consider it a privilege to work with them each day!
