Today we tried a fractions quiz. Everyone worked so hard and did a great job! However, I am so sorry because I made the test more difficult than originally planned. Therefore, we are going to have a do-over test for those that are not happy with their score. Tomorrow I will review and then send home the test from today. Please practice the types of questions over the weekend and students that want to try again (those that got less than 8 points) will take an easier 5 question test that will supplement their current score on Tuesday. The following topics were on the test:
- Adding and subtracting fractions with like and unlike denominators
- Reducing/simplifying fractions
- Reducing improper fractions
Also, I sent home another reading log. Again, this is more for you than me. If you read every single day and finish on May 6th, you will get to pick from the prize bucket. If everyone finishes on May 6th, we will have a celebration! Try not to lose it!
Thanks for working with me while I figure out these tricky assessments! You are all the best!!
