    the skills that are the weeks focus in class.
    Students will take their Spelling TEST every
    Friday along with a Skills Proofreading Check
    Test.

8
INDEPENDENT READING
  • Students have opportunities to independently read
    every day in class. I also encourage students to
    read at least 20 minutes every evening.
  • In addition to AR points quizzes, I also
    provide class activities journaling that
    pertains to a book a student is reading.
  • For Trimester 1- every student has an individual
    goal to reach for AR points. Half of their goal
    points will need to be informational text
    (nonfiction).

9
5th grade Mathematics
  • developing fluency with addition and subtraction
    of fractions
  • developing understanding of the multiplication of
    fractions and of division of fractions in limited
    cases ( unit fractions divided by whole numbers
    and whole numbers divided by unit fractions)

10
  • extending division to 2-digit divisors
    integrating decimal fractions into the place
    value system
  • developing understanding of operations with
    decimals to hundredths
  • developing fluency with whole number and decimal
    operations
  • developing understanding of volume.

11
IXL FOR MATH
  • IXL supports student learning in mathematics.
  • It enables students to practice math standards
    they are struggling with.
  • It enables students to practice higher level math
    concepts they might be ready for.
  • Reports provide teachers parents information on
    how students are progressing.
  • IXL can be accessed at school and home or
    wherever you have internet access _at_ixl.com

12
IXL Expectations
  • Focused math standards are assigned weekly. In
    addition, some students might be assigned to
    focus on their areas of concern, too.
  • Students are asked to spend at least 1 hour (60
    points) per week on IXL. The week begins on
    Monday and runs through Sunday. I check progress
    every Monday morning.

13
MATH HELP LAB
  • Beginning the week of September 22nd, I will
    conduct a math help lab every week during the
    following times
  • Wednesday morning- 845 915
  • Wednesday afternoon- 320 400

14
HOMEWORK
  • Homework will be given Monday through Thursday
    Friday only if student has incomplete, make-up or
    late work.  Homework is given to ensure your
    child understands what was taught in class and
    allows the student to practice the skills
    learned.  This independent practice is essential
    to learning the concept and will also teach
    responsibility.  I will NOT send work home just
    because.  Your child will have approximately 1½
    hours of homework nightly which includes
    independent reading time IXL math practice.

15
MISSED WORK DUE TO ABSENCES/FAMILY VACATIONS
  • When your child is absent from school it is very
    important to keep in mind that much of what we do
    in class cannot be made up because of whole group
    instruction, discussions and activities that are
    not paper pencil. Make-up work will be
    assigned, but because of the nature of several
    lessons it may not be directly retaught. When
    your child returns from an absence he/she will
    need to meet with me to collect any handouts,
    assignments, or letters that need to be taken
    home. I would prefer to have a students make-up
    missed tests or quizzes before or after school.

16
5th Grade Code of Conduct Classroom Rules
  Respect others in actions and words at all
times.   Be responsible for your actions.   Try
your very best.   Be prepared to learn.   Make
good choices.   Listen carefully and follow
directions.   Turn in all homework/assignments
on time.   Follow all school rules.  
17
SNACKS
  • We will have an assigned snack time daily. When
    students are hungry they are not able to focus on
    their schoolwork, so snacking is important. I
    have three rules about snacks They must be
    healthy, not disruptive, and in order for
    students to share they must have enough for the
    whole class. Some good ideas for snacks are
    fruit, crackers and granola bars. Soda and candy
    are not allowed for a snack. It is a good idea,
    especially during the warmer times of the school
    year for students to have a leak proof water
    bottle to keep at their desk.

18
SCHOLASTIC BOOK CLUBS
  • The 1st Wednesday of every month I will send home
    scholastic book club order forms in your childs
    Wednesday folder.  If you are interested in
