Homework 10/8/2018

Hello tonight,


Homework  for the next few weeks may be as clear as mud...


Please encourage your child to review their math notes from their Homework Folder tonight/tomorrow for our graphing test.


Math graphing  for the 3 minutes + and - facts  timings is ongoing and we will eventually transition to multiplication and division facts later in the year. 


The polygon mobile should have at least 5 different polygons- labeled in centimeters and the total  perimeter for each polygon also labeled on the actual polygon. No more than 4 strings hanging from the actual hanger/stick or whatever you choose to use. Your child can connect as many polygons as they want but at least 5 different polygons.


I have string/yarn/paper at school if you are short supplies at home. Have your child see me if they need a hanger, too.


Any type of appropriate hanger/stick/rod is acceptable for the mobile. We can make this work. 


It is meant to be fun and creative as students reinforce measuring, perimeter, and improve their overall grade for our polygons and measurement unit. 


Students are working on their published constellation stories due 10/12. They can always finish any work  at home but they will have time to finish in class if they use their time well in class.


Take care,
