Hello to all!
  This week I have assigned two lessons on multiplying and dividing integers.  If you remember, we worked on these earlier in the year when we learned the rules of multiplying and dividing positive/negative numbers.  
  Have a great week and remember that if you need me, email or call!
Love to all!!

Week of April 20-26

Hi everyone!
This week I have assigned two lessons that we worked on at the first of the year!  Adding and subtracting integers and adding and subtracting rational number are the lessons I want you to review.  Again, if you need help, please let me know and I will be glad to help!
Stay healthy!

April 13-18

Happy Easter to all!
This week I have scheduled only one lesson for you to work on.  It is on volume of a composed figure.  Volume is when you multiply length times (x) width times (x) height.  Your answer will be in feet cubed- to the power of 3.  This means how much of something can fit inside an object.  An example would be: How much sand can a sandbox hold?  
As always, if you need help, please email me or call 865-409-1423. Just say your name, and it will ring my phone.  
Remember you can do more of the lessons iReady has for you, but the one I have assigned would be something we would need to learn before the end of school!
Stay healthy and wash those hands often!

Week of April 6-11

Hello all my favorite kids!!
I have two lessons assigned for you this week.  The lessons will be available Monday through Saturday.  If you need any help, please email me!  I will be able to assist you on these two lessons!
Hope all of you are healthy and safe!
Ms. Amburgey

This Week...

I hope all of you have seen the lesson on iReady that I have scheduled for you.  Believe me, Monday was a day of learning for me trying to get it figured out.  This week's lesson is on Circles that we did before Spring Break.  You will need a calculator and to remember that for Pi, you should use 3.14.  
Please email me if you have any questions regarding this lesson or any others that I schedule for you during this time away from school.
I miss each one of you!
