Today students were given a study guide in order to help them prepare for our first gold test tomorrow, Friday, August 23rd! We have been discussing the skills that will be assessed on this test all week. We also wrote these skills on the board so we could make sure we were reviewing everything before Friday. Here is a picture of what we have been discussing each day:
We completed our PowerUps for the day and then students were given the majority of the class period to complete this study guide. I encouraged them to use their math notebooks as a resource. I pulled small groups of students to my desk to work together to ensure the understanding of procedure & accuracy. Here is the study guide students were given today in class:
We talked through the entire study guide, focusing specifically on the word problems. We drew visuals on the whiteboard for students to make sure they understood what each problem was asking.
Study guides are due tomorrow in class before we begin the test. They will be for a grade in the gradebook.
