Today we were at The City Church rehearsing for our Arts’ Night performance.  Math test will take place tomorrow.

Key points to remember:

For three digit multiplication -  2 x 200 x 6. I can multiply 2 x 200 = 400 and then 400 x 6 = 2400 – remember to make it easy for yourself – multiply 4 x 6 = 24 then add the 2 zeros.

Algebra is a way to solve an equation where you are missing a part of the question. For example A x 5 = 45. All we do to solve this question is bring the 5 to the other side of the = sign. So, A = 45/5 = 9, so A = 9. We need to make sure we change the operation from x to / when we move the 5.

Graphing Patterns  - Juanita is paid $6 an hour to mow lawns. For 2 hours she is paid $12, for 4 hours she is paid $24, for 6 hours she is paid $36, and for 8 hours she is paid $48. The pattern rule for this question is, multiply the hours work by 2 (2 x 6 =12, 6 x 8 =48). Remember when creating your graphs to include a title, two labels, an appropriate scale, and to use the information in the charts/tables.


-Math test tomorrow


Today we found some time in between rehearsals to begin spelling lesson #35 – homonyms. A homonym is a word that sounds the same, but that has a different meaning and spelling. For example, tail and tale - the old folk tale is about a mouse who lost its tail.

We also continued to practice our Arts’ Night performance. The song that we are singing is ‘Parents Just Don’t Understand’ by Will Smith, which is a rap song. For our costumes/outfits, I am asking for jean (baggy if possible), t-shirts, skater shoes/jogging shoes, baseball hats (we will wear them sideways), and big gold chains. Our Arts’ Night performance will take place on Wednesday, May 30th. There will be two performances, one in the afternoon (1:30 PM) and one in the evening beginning at 7:00 PM. We are asking that all students arrive at The City Church no later that 6:30 PM.


-Read 40 minutes
-Finish spelling lesson #35 if not complete in class


Today we had our Arts’ Night rehearsal at The City Church.
