POWER CLASSES
WELCOME TO MRS. WRIGHT'S POWER SCIENCE / POWER MATH 5th Grade POWER SCIENCE We will be reinforcing concepts and objectives taught in the science classroom doing the following activities: Technology TEKS: Students will be learning how to incorporate technology TEKS through the completion of projects in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Publisher. Some projects will be graded for science. Science TEKS Reviews: We will be using various interactive websites. STAAR Review: A few weeks before the STAAR, I will begin reviewing every TEK with the students through questioning and interactive sites. TTMThink Through Math: Every 4 weeks, each class rotates through a two day Power Class Week. During that week, the class will come on Friday. At that time, they will be working on TTMThink Through Math which is the state supported adaptive learning math program that we use at Rogers. Our goal is for every student to complete 30 lessons by STAAR time. This would require some work on a computer at home. Fifth grade students are not required to complete the program like our 6th grade students; however, we strongly suggest that they do so. The program fills in gaps in math knowledge and greatly increases math scores. 6th & 7th Grade POWER MATH We will be reinforcing concepts taught in the classroom through the use of the following:
