The students completed another Basic Fact Practice Test and will take the real test tomorrow.  Don’t forget that the Number Portrait is due tomorrow.  Please make sure you are following the Number Portrait Guidelines.

In class we continued to review some 5th grade skills.  The focus was operations with decimals.  Tomorrow and Monday, we will continue to review 5th grade skills with a focus on a few fraction concepts.  These reviews are being completed in class, so I see results of what the student recalls, not what they can complete at home after studying or asking questions.

Don’t forget that the number portrait is due on Friday!

Thank you to all the students who shared extra supplies today as we organized our math materials!

Students now have their MATH binder filled with 2 clear page protectors and loose leaf paper. They have placed their composition book in the left binder pocket.  I collected the 2 pocket folder and a red pen today.  We spent a long time labeling all the supplies (including the pencil pouches and calculators) with first and last names.

All classes, EXCEPT 7th period, received the math textbook today.  This textbook stays at school unless there is homework assigned from the book.

News:  Gala tickets can be purchased during lunch for $7.

I have enjoyed the first two days of school.

Today all classes reviewed Locker 101 again and had a chance during math class to make sure their lockers were organized.  The class also discussed and reviewed Mrs. Burdett’s Math Procedures.

Math Supplies are due on Monday.  Please put your first and last name on all items before sending them to school.

Open House is Tuesday at 6:00.  This is a time for parents only.

I hope you had a wonderful first day of school.

Today, we received our lockers and completed a basic whole number review.  Please read through Locker 101.  Learn the names of your locker neighbors and remember to be respectful to each of them.  You may begin to bring your supplies tomorrow.  Make sure you label everything including your pencil pouch and your lunchbox (First and last names).  

In the morning you must wait until the bell rings to dismiss you from the gym before you may go down the hall to your lockers.

Homework:  Tell your family the best and worst part of the day.  Be specific!
