Spring 5th Grade Math and Science
Week of November 20th 
 
MATH NEWS 
Students will complete their decimals Math test on Monday. We will then move on to Chapter 5: Dividing Decimals. I will only assign homework on Monday. There will be no homework over Thanksgiving break. Relax and enjoy your family time. There will be plenty of work to do when we get back.  However, if there are Study Island assignments that aren't done, please use time over break to get them done. 
 
Mrs. Spring just found a GREAT WEBSITE for math homework help. There is a video with excellent review of every lesson in G0 MATH for 5th grade. Check it out below:
 
 
 
MATH NEWS FLASH: NO MULTI-PASSES ACCEPTED FOR MATH HOMEWORK (Students need review of math concepts each day. We review the concepts and take a quiz most days. One more day doesn't help)
  
 REFER TO THE LOOPING HOMEWORK CALENDAR FOR DAILY HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS. IT CAN CHANGE THROUGHOUT THE WEEK. STUDY ISLAND IS REQUIRED AND HIGH SCORES ARE RECORDED IN PROGRESS BOOK. STUDENTS NEED TO SCORE 80% OR HIGHER ON STUDY ISLAND SESSIONS.
 
Use the IMN to study by reviewing lessons and graded quizzes. Here is a link to a fun game to help review math facts: 
 
 
Khan Academy is a very useful tool to review concepts. Here is a link to all of Khan Academy 5th grade math resources:
 
  
 Quizlet MATH vocabulary for Chapter 3 will be available soon. Students will also have this vocabulary in their IMN.

SCIENCE NEWS  
 
Students in the WHITE CLASS will have an Ecosystems 2 test on Tuesday, November 21st. A study guide came home last week. 
 
SCIENCE STUDY ISLAND: Organism Interactions was due Nov.3rd for all students. Study Island grades are entered in Progress Book after the due dates. Here are a few ecosystem links  : 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
         
Looping students also have access to Gizmos, which will help with understanding of Ecosystems. Use this link:

 Search for food chain
Launch the Gizmo (we will be using this in blue science this week). Other food chain-related Gizmos are fun as well. Have fun!

MY POLICY IS THAT STUDENTS WILL HAVE LITTLE TO NO HOMEWORK IN SCIENCE AND SOCIAL STUDIES (ONLY SPELLING CITY AND STUDY ISLAND IN SCIENCE). THEY ARE TO WORK HARD AND PLAY NICE IN MY CLASSROOM, THEREFORE DOING THEIR "STUDYING" DURING CLASS. I AM ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO HELP STUDENTS WHO NEED EXTRA REVIEW/TIME TO LEARN CONCEPTS. PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.
