**Math:**

Ch. 6 continues with addition and subtraction of fractions, including mixed numbers (5 1/2). Students will be renaming mixed numbers, use numeric patterns with fractions (1, 1 1/2, 2, 2 1/2, etc.), and learning how to solve some problems using the strategy *work backwards to solve*.

**Science:**

Earth Science: Rocks and Earth Structures

**Earth Structures Part 2 Vocabulary List**

**Natural resource:** A material found in nature that is valuable to humans.

**Renewable resource**: A material that is continually being replaced and will not run out.

**Nonrenewable resource:** A material that cannot be replaced quickly enough to keep it from running out.

**Fossil fuel:** A source of energy that formed from the remains of things that lived millions of years ago and are found between layers of rock.

**Coal:** A nonrenewable resource that when burned, releases energy in the form of heat; a solid, black mineral

**Oil:** A nonrenewable resource that is turned into gasoline and other kinds of fuel; a thick, black substance.

**Natural gas**: A nonrenewable resource that provides energy for cooking and heating; a gas that is colorless and odorless

**Solar energy:** Energy that comes from the sun that is used to generate electricity, heat, and light.

**Wind energy**: Energy that comes from wind and that is used to generate electricity.

**I will be teaching both Math and Science for my homeroom class, and Math for Mrs. Bullock's homeroom. Mrs. Jheri Wilson will be teaching Science to Mrs. Bullock's homeroom while I push in to other classrooms for Math support. Mrs. Bullock will be teaching reading and social studies to both classes. So, welcome to our team!!!**

**Expectations:**

Students will use their spiral notebooks as journals. We will be using a few of the spiral notebooks through the year, but students only need 1 at a time at school.

A classroom grade will be given for the journal, which will be checked periodically through each quarter.

Students have to place a table of contents on the first page, then skip 5 pages. On page 6, they will start placing information from each lesson on each successive page, while remembering to also list the information in their table of contents.

Students should always have practice problems in their journals. They should be made up of both standard and scenario problems.

**Homework:**

Students will remove a homework sheet from their math practice book for each lesson nightly. If a lesson is not complete, there will not be homework for the lesson, or it will be partial.

Homework will be either even or odd numbers, but always includes both "problem solving" and "lesson check" scenarios. **IMPORTANT* **If a student struggles with the homework, please have them show their best effort, but have them bring the issue to me. I will help the students fix any misconceptions or errors. **Please** do not feel that you have to help them complete all of the homework.

**IXL: **This is now a regular homework assignment. Students need to practice assigned modules nightly for 20-30 minutes (or more if needed).

**Science:**

We will be doing many hands on and movement activities in the classroom and the science lab this year. However, students who are not demonstrating safety instructions will not be able to participate.

**Expectations: **Students will listen to and observe all teacher and adult instructions. Safety infractions are considered highly serious. All labs require the students to utilize their PSELL books and fill in answers and data. Students will be expected to analyze and make inferences from the collected data.

**Homework: **The general homework plan will be to study their vocabulary words. However, there will be projects, home inquiries, and research students will compelete periodically. Any special projects will include instructions and a grading rubric to take home.
