Homework:  This week (5/13-5/16) students will be assigned multi-step review questions.  PLEASE READ AND DISCUSS THE EXPECTATIONS WITH YOUR CHILD. 

  • They are to complete ONLY the problems assigned for homework that day          (NO MORE, NO LESS)
  • They MUST get a parent/guardian initial for each and every answer.                        No initials?  No credit!
  • A 100% will be earned for simply completing the problems (right or wrong).
  • The packet of 25 questions will then be collected and graded Friday the 17th and returned next week in order to discuss any/all possible solutions.
  • The SOL test will have several of these multi-step problems that many 5th grade students struggle with as they attempt to read and come up with a strategy for correctly solving the problems.  We have been completing problems like these in class on a regular basis.  This review packet is one last attempt to practice this skill.

Thank you in advance for working closely with your child at home and checking their work before they turn this review packet in to be graded.  Mr. Sparico
