Math

This tab highlights current and upcoming standards being introduced, developed and reviewed.  Continuous review at home of material learned in class is the key to academic success.  With that said, please make sure your fifth grader is putting in at least 30-50 minutes of study every night. 

Even if there is no homework assigned, students are expected to review all material previously taught in all classes in order to “keep it fresh”.

Math Homework will mainly consist of……  

  1. Practice problems and review pages/study guides.  Homework problems will come from the textbook, worksheets, or problems made up by me that students copy from board.
  2. Review.  Students are always expected to review at home even if practice problems are not assigned.  >>>>CHECK YOUR CHILD’S AGENDA NIGHTLY FOR ASSIGNED HOMEWORK.

Check my home page or sign up for text “Remind” to find assigned homework and upcoming assessments and other important dates for math class.

Math Classwork will mainly consist of…..

Lot’s of interaction.  For example, we will discuss, work out problems, copy examples, draw diagrams, and write definitions from the board for the student to refer to as they complete their homework and prepare for upcoming assessments.

With that said, it is very important that they come to school prepared to discuss with their up to date notebook every day and ready to focus!! 

 ***Again! Staying focused and on task will be the key to their success or failure.

Parents!!  Please check your child’s agenda daily to ensure that they are completing all assigned work.  Daily review and practice of skills learned in class is the key to academic success.
