TCAP Prep! It's near, and it's almost here! 3-22-10 to 3-26-10

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

In the coming weeks, your child will be doing tons of review of old SPI skills. In fact, they have "learned" everything they are intended to learn in 5th grade math so far. Now we just have to further ingrain these math skills by doing some TCAP Prep. We will be doing various activities using centers, ActivBoard, Elmo projector, computers, and plain ole' pencil & paper. This next week, we will be reviewing the first nine weeks worth of skills. These are the skills we worked on in August, September, and some of October.

These are the skills we will be reviewing:
#1 Reads and writes numbers from millions to millionths (place value)
#2 Compares whole numbers and decimals using <, >, =
#3 Solves addition and subtraction problems involving decimals
#4 Estimates decimal sums or differences (rounding and truncating..a skill most 5th graders struggle with)
#5 Divides two- and three- digit numbers by one- and two-digit numbers
#6 Recognizes the remainder in division in either decimal or fraction form
#7 Selects a reasonable solution to a real-world division problem in which
the remainder must be considered
#8 Identifies missing information and/or too much information in word problems

Please feel free (and please do!) to let your child practice these skills using various math resources, games, or worksheets found through my site (or other means!) I am in the process of organizing the site even more. Please check out the pages to the right (underneath the home tab) to see lists to specific report card skills for each 9 weeks.

Signing off, Mrs. Burger :-)
