Good Morning from Vegas! I am so sorry I forgot to post on the blog yesterday morning. When I got up at 6 am I realized Minnesota time is two hours ahead of me. Meaning it was 8 am your time and I missed the beginning of class.
Anyway, I hope all of your MAP tests have started good. Remember, it's these last few problems that can really be the difference makers. You never know when that one question is going to give you enough to meet or not meet your own personal goals! #finishstrong
Your day will look like this day:
7:50-9:05 - MAP Math
9:05 - Bathroom Break
9:30ish - Begin working on your math. We are going to begin some work on fractions again, probably our most needed area. Remember, find all the multiples of your denominators first, then figure out what you multiplied your original denominator by to get the new one and multiple that top by that to create your new fractions. Then the rest is a piece of cake
9:50 - Art
10:30 - Reading
11:40 - Materials away get ready for lunch
11:55 - Lunch
1:00 - Math work time (use wisely, there are 24 problems...you don't want tons of homework) Everything you need is in the Tuesday Sub folder for this assignment (even a notes sheet attached) Once you finish turn that in by Wednesday evening. If you are done early I slid a link to some online practice or you can use the fractions dice with a partner to create problems...maybe race each other!?
1:30 - Coding - Swift play-groud or Code.org
2:05 - Clean up
Remember all Library books are due as well...get those things in!
On a side note, bowling is going ok...a few of my teammates have taken over the leads is different events, our team bowled last night and we are in 21st place...which doesn't sound awesome but that is out of 12,000 teams! Hope you all have a great day and talk to via the blog again tomorrow. Be on the PATH and most importantly be respectful while the sub is there.

Good Morning Super Students! Our last opportunity to impress the State of Minnesota today with the MCA Science test We will be starting at 8 prompt. Please make sure you take care of grabbing breakfast, lunch choice, gum, pencils, and then do the whole iPad testing procedure:
If you have any WFL bottles please put those on the cart and I will dump them into the bucket after school!
Don't forget about the mile run tomorrow. The weather actually looks perfect for a nice run, wear something comfortable!
Welcome back Super Students! Long time since we have been at PV, or so it seems. We have lots to talk about today but first we need to get to our item sampler for science this morning. Please follow the link: Science Item Sampler, to begin the sample test.
Good Morning Super Students! The week of Deep Portage us upon us! A lot to think about, be excited about and if you have any questions, please stop and ask me sometime today.
We are going to be putting together math videos the next few days with some of the concepts you have learned about this year! Starting thinking about what topic you may want: add/subtracting fractions, order of operations, area of triangles, nets and 3D figures, multistep world problem, creating a table and graphing, comparing and order fractions and decimals.
If you have ROX reading for today, keep that until 7:45 and I will look at your iPad to draw for the drawstring bag this week.
If you have brought in any socks, reminder that those go into the office but report the total to me for our class goal!
Good Morning Super Students! The day I have been waiting for all year...our opportunity to take the math test. Hopefully you were able to get a good nights rest and eat a little breakfast. if not, it looks like there are bananas and breakfast bars. Please take one if you'd like, grab a piece of gum or jolly rancher from the cart before testing this morning to be prepared.
Grab your own head phones or the ones you are borrowing from me by the sink!
You also need to do that whole testing procedure: close safari tabs, close iPad apps and turn it all the way off....and make sure you are on Storm wifi when we turn it back on!
Good luck to all of you. I am very proud of each and every one of you! You have allowed me to push you outside of your comfort zone and hopefully think about math in a very different way! Accept all 52 challenges you are faced with today and attack them
We will be taking the Math Sampler this morning from 7:50 - 8:30. You will need to follow this link "Math Sampler website" to the address and sign in as a "guest". Practice using the tools as much as possible, especially the calculator.
Good Morning Super Students! Welcome back to an amazing week. I am especially excited because as your math teacher I know that we have a chance to show up this week and crush our math test :)
What a beautiful weekend to spend some time outside and enjoy the extra days off...love that the rain held off! Don't feel guilty being inside all day today.
On the board, write one thing you will do this week to make someone else's week amazing. You don't need to be specific....
