Good evening all,
Today in class we learned about Advanced Analogies, 2 and 3 Digit Addition & Subtraction, Money, and Basic Decimals. As of today's class, your child has finished learning all of gifted program level 1's material plus additional content I added!
Reminder that TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY (5/19/2018), is the day of the final exam. I have finished writing the final exam. It will have two parts. The first part is multiple choice and the second part is free response. 20 questions total. Next week's class (5/12/2018), will serve as the final review. I have planned several games to play that involve review of the all the content since week #1 (2/3/2018). Reminder again that the final exam is cumulative.
After students have completed the final exam, their last homework assignment will be a big one. Since the week of the final exam and the class after that has a two week gap due to memorial day, they will get plenty of time to work on it. They will create a poster that teaches and displays ONE of the concepts taught this semester. They will be presenting it to the whole class to receive practice on their public speaking skills. This project will be worth almost the same amount as the final exam. More details will be sent out in a later email.
