Homework:  The fraction unit test will be soon.  With a long 4 day weekend ahead of us and 2 days out of class, I have assigned the 3rd and final fraction test review sheet as homework.  It is due Tuesday 2/20 with a parent signature and ALL work numbered and shown neatly on lined paper.  They will be requried to find and correct any mistakes before we will schedule the unit test.

FYI-The 1st review sheet has been graded and should be in their Thursday folders.  I suggest they pull that out and refer to any corrections they had to make so the do not repeat the same mistakes.  They were also instructed to take their notebooks home and to use it if they get stuck at any point in these problems.

Homework:  Adding and subtracting fraction/mixed # review page.  Show all work as always and as instructed.

I’d also like to say CONGRATULATIONS to our BETA convention winners!  They represented LCES and CCPS well.  Way to go kids!

Homework:  Finish the 1st Round Fraction Review that was started in class.

As always, ALL work must be show as modeled and instructed in class.  

**Students are far too often NOT showing their work and making repeated careless mistakes.  If they think it, they should write it.  Encourage your child to write it all down!  

>>>>There will be a Fraction Unit Test in soon.  Look for a date in their agenda’s.  The more effort (showing work) they put into these review problems, the better they will do on their test.

We will learn how to multiply a fraction by a whole number this week before moving onto comparing and ordering sets of fractions, mixed numbers and decimals.  Look for notebooks to come home as they work with these concepts and complete assigned homework.
