    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)

    Topic 1 - Home School Connection

    Introduction to basic fractions - understanding the parts of a fraction represent.  Identifying fractions and modeling fractions will also be explored. 

     8th Grade Math

    Topic 2:  Students will understand the y-intercept of a line is the y-coordinate of the point where the graph of the line crosses the y-axis.  Its meaning depends on the context of the graph.  Also, the students will understand the slope-intercept form for a linear equation, y = mx + b, gives information to sketch a graph of the line.  It indicates the point (0,b) is on the graph of teh line and shows that the slope of the line is m.    

     Topic 2: Home-School Connection

     7th Grade Math

     Topic 3:  Students will be able to write expressions using whole-number exponents to represent real-world and mathematical problems. They will also be able to evaluate expressions with whole-number exponents.  

    Topic 3 - Home School Connection

    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.

    -Working on responding to literature using textual evidence

     7th Grade Writing
    Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas, concepts, and information through the selection, organization, and analysis of relevant content.
    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.
