Chapter 5 Test is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 12.
Parents: most of our students need review of their basic facts in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. 5 to 10 minutes of practice a few days a week would be very helpful to most students.
Students will have a problem of the week due every Friday when there is at least a 4 day week. The problem is given the first day of the week. The problem must follow the five step outline given in class. Parents, please feel free to check on this and even help them if they need it.

Roots & Vocab - Root of the week: -phon- meaning sound. As a reminder: the definitions need to include the meaning of the root and must not use the word itself in the definition - if you are defining the word microphone, you may not use the word microphone in the definition.
Roots Worksheets are due each Wednesday, and there is a quiz each Friday. ****The Quiz this week will be on Thursday due to our field trip on Friday this week.
A test on Unit 2 will be on Thursday. Students, use the unit review to guide your study so you are well prepared for the test. Some of the notes and information is on your google classroom.
