Hello 5th grade families,
As promised, I am sending out an email explaining/clarifying information about our next math test (along with other updates for next week).
Our wonderful students are just about ready to test for our next two concepts: reading/writing/comparing decimals and rounding decimals. I sent home the review tonight as homework (due tomorrow), and we will begin reviewing tomorrow. Because I am going to be out of town next Wednesday-Friday (I am attending the National Council of Teachers in Mathematics conference in Nashville, TN), our choices were limited to test 11/17 (Tuesday) or 11/23 (last day before break starts). The reason for it only being possible on Tuesday of next week is that I do not feel comfortable leaving a test for the kids while a sub is here (I would not be here to clarify anything/answer questions). So, I asked the kids for feedback today on when they felt that they would be ready- next week or the following week. I have chosen to offer it as a choice. On Monday I will ask them to decide of they are ready to take the test 11/17 or on 11/24- students that are ready on 11/17 will take it then and those that aren't will take it 11/24. Hopefully that makes sense- please email me if you have any questions.
Other important updates/reminders...
Please do not hesitate to email me with any questions! Have a fabulous evening, and I hope to see you tomorrow at Faith & Fundamentals!
