Week One

09/07/2011

 
We've had a little more than a week together as a class, and I think things are going great. It's a great group, and I can tell we are going to have a fantastic year together.
 
After we got through the beginning of the year stuff, we jumped right in to curriculum!  The math units in 5th grade are quite short, so it is easy to get through one in about two weeks.  We will be having our first math test on Friday (9/9).  Our unit focused on place value of whole numbers to the billions, and decimals to the millionths.  Students should be able to say and write numbers, use inequalities to order them, and list numbers from least to greatest.  I sent a review packet home today that should help students to see if they are ready for the test. The answers for the packet are here.

On the Homework page of our website is a link to practice spelling words. The 5th grade team decided to use 5th grade high frequency words this year for our spelling. These are words that 5th graders are most likely to say and write in their deaily life.  They may seem easy, but they are the most important words to get right.

Of course we will go over many more curriculum details at next week's Curriculum Night, but I hope this helps for now! Please feel free to email me with any questions.
