This Week in Mrs. Wikert's Room
Period 1 - Math
Topic 1: Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.
-Use sharing to separte equal groups and to think about division
-Use repeated subtraction to show the relationship between division and subtraction
-Use multiplication and division strategies to solve real world problems (word problems)
Students are working on adding and subtracting fractions with like demoninators.
8th Grade Math
Topic 6: Focus on analyzing transformations (translations, reflections, rotations, dilations), understanding congruent and similar figures, understanding angle relationship among angles formed by parallel lines and a transversal, the interior/exterior angles of a triangle, and Angle-Angle (AA) triangle similarity.
7th Grade Math
Topic 4: Represent and Solve Equations and Inequalities
-Students will identify equations and variables
-Use substitution to find solutions to equations
-Use the properties of equaltiy to keep both sides of an equatin equal.
-Identify which properties of equality are used t write equivalent expressions.
-Write one-variable addition and subtraction equations.
-Use inverse relationships and properties of equality to solve one- step additina and subtraction equations.
Period 1 - ELA
Students are working on the following parts of speech; nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs.
The students are concentrating on writing intoductory paragraphs.
They are continuing to work on enhancing their writing ability. The students are working at incorporating multiple parts of speech to their writing to make it more rich. The students are also working on creating more complex sentences.
6th Grade Reading
Working on strategies to improve comprehension. Using close reading strategies, the students will improve their comprehension of fiction and non-fiction text.
-Working on responding to literature using textual evidence
7th Grade WritingCCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.7.2
Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas, concepts, and information through the selection, organization, and analysis of relevant content.CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.7.2.A
Introduce a topic clearly, previewing what is to follow; organize ideas, concepts, and information, using strategies such as definition, classification, comparison/contrast, and cause/effect; include formatting (e.g., headings), graphics (e.g., charts, tables), and multimedia when useful to aiding comprehension.
4th Grade Reading Working on strategies to improve compreshension. Using close reading techniques, the student will improve comprehsion of fiction and non-fiction material.
