Use the following link the access our full math module! You will need to scroll down to the "Downloadable Resources" portion of the page and click the first link to view the full module as a PDF.

This site will not show you the work on the homework problems specifically, but does contain a full lesson showing how to do these types of problems. Homework answers only (without work shown) can be found in the last pages of the module.


**PARENTS: Check out this awesome resource at the link below for homework help! It has worked through problem sets with the answers and videos for each grade and each module lesson!**:


*Students must show work to receive credit on the math homework. Please remind your child to least attempt each problem and not leave any without work shown. We will go over areas of difficulty in class. We do the math set that corresponds to the homework in class together and they are the same types of problems with different numbers. Students should be able to refer back to this set for help setting up the problems.

We have finished all Reading Units for the year and are now in the process of the end of the year reading level testing. Students will be reading books of their choice and completing their reading logs in class, while others are tested. There will be no more assigned Reading homework this year, as the logs will be done in class and for participation/completion points.

*Students will receive one "free pass" per trimester on homework. If homework is not complete after the free pass, they will have to go to the homework room to finish their assignments during lunch and recess.


Students have officially completed their writing units and finished all essays! :) They will now spend time learning about areas they haven't been exposed to this year. This week, we will work on learning different styles of poetry and practice writing some of our own.

Word Study:
We will be piloting a new Word Study program (not "Words Their Way" this year. We plan on following this schedule:

Day 1-Introducing the new word list
Day2- Spelling word activity or worksheet
Day 3-Vocabulary word activity or worksheet
Day 4: Review Game and Practice Test
Day 5: *TEST!* (16 spelling and 5 vocabulary words; tested separately- two grades)


We have returned to our regular science text to learn about electricity in our Electricity and Magnetism Chapter. *WE WILL BE COMPLETING A STUDY GUIDE THURSDAY AND TAKING AN OPEN BOOK QUIZ ON FRIDAY!*

Social Studies is normally covered within our Reading curriculum, but we will be supplementing some additional social studies instruction during this time, as well.
