Class Information

Math: We are currently working on a divison unit.  We will be working on mental math division strategies, old school long division, and what to do with remainders.  There are videos on schoology that should help with each concept. 

Practice and Study Island categories are listed below.   Math homework is pretty consistent.  Each week the students will have 4-5 Math Box pages to work on in their journals.  We go over each box at some point throughout the week.  I encourage students to attempt the boxes they feel confident in doing at home or with a little help and leave any boxes that are causing frustration for school.  Study Links are on the iPads this year.  Students are provided work time during the day for study links.  Study Links will only be homework if they were not completed during class.   Due Dates for Math Boxes and Study Links will always be posted below.

Reading: We are currently in Unit ​4 in which we are working on determining a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text, inlcluding ​how characters in a story or drama respond to challenges. ​For extra practice, students can work on the following 5th grade 2010 ELA Study Island standards: 1c and 1d​​. Students​​ can also work on the following IXL standards: V1. Study Island and IXL are good ways to prepare for unit tests. Please look below for due dates on various activities throughout the year.​

Science:  We are working on learning the Scientific Process and will be diving into some fun experiments during this unit.  

Social Studies:    We are studing Ancient Western Civilizations: Inca, Aztec, Maya, Anasazi, and Mound Builders
