We will be reviewing old skills from 1st-3rd nine weeks still.
We will also be introducing some new 6th grade skills in preparation for the fall.
We will also be doing math centers, math riddles, math puzzles, and math games using all of our 5th grade math skills!

Going to be a load of fun! 30 days left of 5th grade for the kiddos.

The skills we will be working this week and next week will be skills we did in the 3rd 9 weeks. These are the skills we just finished doing in January through March.

These included skills to do with measurement and geometry.
#1 Records measurements in context to reasonable degree of accuracy using decimals and/or fractions
#2 Given a series of geometric statements, draws a conclusion about the figure described
#3 Finds perimeter and area of irregular shapes
#4 Solves word problems that require calculating area of triangles and parallelograms
#5 Identifies three-dimensional objects from two-dimensional representations of that object (nets) and vice versa
#6 Solves problems involving surface area and volume of rectangular prisms and polyhedral solids
#7 Finds the length of line segments in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, including the use of fractions of decimals
#8 Calculates mean, median, mode, and range to analyze data
#9 Makes predictions based on various data representations, including double bar graph and line graph
#10 Depicts data using various representations, including decimal and/or fractional data

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.
