5th grade Mathematics uses the Everyday Math
series that has been used since kindergarten. In 5th grade we will
continue to build on and add to the skills learned in 4th grade. Students
will have a Student Reference book that helps explain what is being taught in
class. They will also have a Math Journal (workbook) which will be completed
mainly in class and also a workbook for each unit which will have pages that
are for homework. As we move through the year, instant recall of the
multiplication facts is vital. Please practice with your child to
reinforce the facts. While I still prefer flashcard, there are a number
of websites and apps out there that your child can use to practice. One
of my favorites is www.freerice.com.
Please remind your child to ask questions when they are unsure and I am always
will to work with them during our 5th period study hall or when possible before
or after school.
