Assessment #14 Monday June 10th
During our Daily 5 we are learning strategies to help us become strong readers. We are also building our stamina. Our Good Fit Book logs are to be filled out every day. Your child should be reading 20 minutes Monday through Thursday and once on the weekend. Your support is greatly appreciated and will lead to a successful reading experience for your child.
We will continue with our study of Line Plots and graphing
Please ask to see your child's most recent fractions packet.
If you know your child is still struggling with their math facts please work with them at home. This chapter relies on a student's automatic recall of his math facts. You can use some of the great websites that can be found on the Arongen computer page for 5th grade.
We are stressing speed and accuracy. They should be able to tell you the answer automatically. "Know your facts like you know your own name."
Please use the link below to review concepts from the textbook as needed.
Students may earn 5 bonus points by completing the online practice test. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and complete the assessment.
