Thank you to the parents who participated in our conferences.

Here are the standards your child is currently working on with **Mrs. Dunn.**

6.EE.1-Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.

6.EE.2-Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.

6.EE.2a-Write expressions that record operations with numbers and with letters standing for numbers.

6.EE.2b-Identify parts of an expression using mathematical terms; view one or more parts of an expression as a single entity.

6.EE.2c-Evaluate expressions at specific value of their variables. Include expressions that arise from formulas used in real-word problems.

6.EE.3-Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.

6.EE.4-Identify when two expressions are equivalent.

6.EE.6-Use variables to represent numbers and write expression when solving a real-word or mathematical problem; understand that a variable can represent an unknown number, or, depending on the purpose at hand, any number in a specified set.

7.RP.1-Compute unit rates associated with ratios of fractions, including ratios of length, areas and other quantities measured in like or different units.

7.RP.2-Recognize and represent proportional relationships between quantities.

7.RP.2a-Decide whether two quantities are in a proportional relationship.

7.RP.2b-Identify the constant of proportionality in tables, graphs, equations, diagrams, and verbal descriptions of proportional relationships.

7.RP.2c-Represent proportional relationships by equations.

7.RP.2d-Explain what a point (x,y) on the graph of a proportional relationship means in terms of the situation, with special attention to the points (0,0) and (1,r) where is is the unit rate.

7.RP.3-Use proportional relationships to solve multi-step ratio and percent problems.

7.NS.3-Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving the four operations with rational numbers.

8.EE.C.7a-Give examples of linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions. Show which of these possibilities is the case by successively transforming the given equation into simple forms, until an equation of the forms x-a, a=a or a=b results.

8.EE.c.7b-Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms.

Here are the standards your child is working on with **Mrs. Christian Baker**

Topic: We are focusing on researching events that led to the sinking of the Titanic. The research we gather will be used as prior knowledge before reading our third quarter class novel, Tonight on the Titanic.

RI.35.9a Integrate information about a topic

from two or more sources to report/write about

the subject.

RI.35.10a Read supported grade-level/age appropriate

informational materials, including

history/social studies and technical texts which

are adapted to the students’ reading level.

6.1. Write arguments to support claims with clear reasons and relevant evidence. a. Introduce claim(s) and organize the reasons and evidence clearly. b. Support claim(s) with clear reasons and relevant evidence, using credible sources and demonstrating an understanding of the topic or text. c. Use words, phrases, and clauses to clarify the relationships among claim(s) and reasons. d. Establish and maintain a formal style. e. Provide a concluding statement or section that follows from the argument presented.

6.4. Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.

7.1. Write arguments to support claims with clear reasons and relevant evidence. a. Introduce claim(s), acknowledge alternate or opposing claims, and organize the reasons and evidence logically. b. Support claim(s) with logical reasoning and relevant evidence, using accurate, credible sources and demonstrating an understanding of the topic or text. c. Use words, phrases, and clauses to create cohesion and clarify the relationships among claim(s), reasons, and evidence. d. Establish and maintain a formal style. e. Provide a concluding statement or section that follows from and supports the argument presented.

7.4 Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience

8.1. Write arguments to support claims with clear reasons and relevant evidence. a. Introduce claim(s), acknowledge and distinguish the claim(s) from alternate or opposing claims, and organize the reasons and evidence logically. b. Support claim(s) with logical reasoning and relevant evidence, using accurate, credible sources and demonstrating an understanding of the topic or text. c. Use words, phrases, and clauses to create cohesion and clarify the relationships among claim(s), counterclaims, reasons, and evidence. d. Establish and maintain a formal style. e. Provide a concluding statement or section that follows from and supports the argument presented.

8.4 Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.

We encourage conversations about these standards so you can monitor your child's progress and understanding more effectively. Should you have any questions, please select the staff icon (to the right) for access to teacher e mail.
