Are you ready for State exam? I hope so! April in Christina’s class was about continuing to prepare for the BIG three days. We mostly divided decimals through engaging Math games. We also changed fractions to decimals. The practice exercises in Dreambox and Khan academy gave us opportunities to keep applying what we know. Our goal was to raise our percentage in Khan. In class, we used problems from past State exams for our exit tickets and sometimes we think them through with Christina. At this point, we’re ready to get all the rest that we need to think well and do well in the coming exams. Don’t forget to have sharpened pencils, an eraser, and the patience to go step by step, show your work, think carefully first of what’s ‘known’ and unknown’ in a given problem. All the wonderful tips and reminders we have been hearing and doing! Just think, when the three days of mental EXERCISE is over, we will enjoy two weeks of no homework. Right, Christina?
