Homework is a completion grade. There are 3 math and 1 science homework assignments this week so plan accordingly with practices, clubs, and other activities.
Please check your child's agenda NIGHTLY. Teachers will be signing agendas for the first semester to teach responsibility. Since we have started the second semester I will not be signing student’s agendas when homework is assigned. It is now up to the student to write down their homework and get it completed. This is where you will find notes from the teacher, test dates, student homework, etc. I ask that you sign at least once a week so I can make sure it is being shown to parents.
Test Dates- I will send out test dates and changes in my weekly blast.
Quizzes- In 5th grade, quizzes are unannounced. Students are expected to study nightly so they are always prepared.
Please remember that when you come to eat lunch with your child, this is a time for you to bond and chat with your child. We ask that they do not bring friends up to the stage with them.
Math-We are starting our Unit 4 Multiplying and Dividing Fractions Unit. We will be learning how to model multiplying fractions as well as the algorithm for multiplying fractions.
Online Learners- Students will be working at their own pace.
Science – We will be starting to learn about Constructive and Destructive Forces of Nature.
