This week we will enter the month of February which is traditionally our coldest month of the year. The 17th, which is a Friday, was originally a teacher workday that will now be a make-up day. Monday, the 24th is still a teacher workday but could quite possibly be used as another make-up day should any inclement weather come our way. We shall certainly see!
In math, we did review of fractions with the focus being on adding and subtracting mixed numbers with the same denominator. In my second block, the focus is on unlike denominators. I also touched on multiplying fractions with that same class.
We also used the time in both classes to catch up on the exit tickets so there will be too many to list below. I still have the warm-up activities.
In science, the students sketched the phases of the moon.
