Spelling List Words

Week of May 14, 2018












This weeks spelling test will have dictation sentences.  Each student has a sheet with the ten sentences on it so they can practice the sentences throughout the week.  Please notify me if your student does not come home with this sheet. 


Practice dictionary skills.....use those guide words!
Read for 30 or more minutes each night.
Math- Study Multiplication Facts and division facts as well as reviewing place value. Practice using a protractor and measuring angles.
Practice drawing angles: right, acute, obtuse

Study types of triangles: equilateral, scalene, isosceles

Equilateral, Isosceles and Scalene

There are three special names given to triangles that tell how many sides (or angles) are equal.

There can be 3, 2 or no equal sides/angles:

Equilateral Triangle

Equilateral Triangle

Three equal sides
Three equal angles, always 60°

Isosceles Triangle

Isosceles Triangle

Two equal sides
Two equal angles

Scalene Triangle

Scalene Triangle

No equal sides
No equal angles

Geometry terms: Symmetry and Congruence
When two shapes are congruent it means they are the same exact shape and size. 
If you fold a figure in half along the middle line either horizontally or vertically and all sides of the figure match, this is called symmetry!

Don't forget to practice math on : www.ixl.com   Students all have their own accounts and can access this program from home as often as possible.  One to two extra practice sessions throughout the week can make a huge difference in skills.  I am able to track performance even if the students are practicing from home.  This is a great way to study skills and have some fun doing it. 
Another program students are encouraged to check out as often as possible are activities on Arcademics.  Follow the link below and have fun!
