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.


This week, we will be taking a break before starting our eighth module in order to prepare for the upcoming IAR State Testing.

*There will be no vocabulary or story quiz this week due to IAR Prep.

*There will still be a Reading Log for homework each night!

Please note that the Reading Log has changed! Students should read 20 minutes per night and fill in the log. On
Tuesday nights, the homework will be the comprehension sheet with questions for a grade.

*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.


This week, we will be taking a break before starting our eighth module in order to prepare for the upcoming IAR State Testing.

Spelling will be incorporated into our new ELA Curriculum and go along with the new Reading and Writing Curriculum. 


There is no spelling this week due to IAR Prep.


This week, we will be watching the movie "The Iron Giant" in connection with our studies on magnetism. There is no quiz this week!
