Math – Unit 8, fractions, ended today, but many students will continue to receive tutoring and small group instruction on this topic. The next ten-day unit is Probability and Measures of Center, in which we will spend a lot of time covering mean, median, mode, and range. After that will be geometry and SOL review to close out the year.

Science & Social Studies – Students have already received their SOL test study guides that cover ALL 4th AND 5th grade content on which they will be tested. Students are expected to be reviewing these materials each school night for 10-15 minutes.
