Classroom Information:

Organization is important and our agendas make organization very simple.  Homework, tests, daily topics, and important information will be written in agendas in every class.  All homework will be labeled with the letters HWK.  Please review assignments with your child daily.  During the 2015-2016 school year, I will be teaching Math.


Math Class:

In fifth grade math, we focus on addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers, decimals, and fractions.  We also cover topics in geometry and algebra.  The fifth grade curriculum mostly covers fractions.  Any evening when there is no homework is a great night to practice math facts in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.  We use these mental math skills in all of the areas that we cover in class.  Every night students will have MATH FACT HOMEWORK.  They are to write the multiplication facts, of the number we are on for the week, 5 times each.  These facts are a grade and are quized at the end of every week.

Click on the word math above.  Once you are on the website, click on the chalkboard with the word MATHO.  This is similar to to the game Bingo.  You can choose to practice adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing, as well as the difficulty level.
