Students are provided with a homework planner at the beginning of the year and are expected to use it on a daily basis to monitor their homework. We are providing class support in completing that planner.
Students are expected to read 40 pages or 40 minutes or more daily, at their own reading level. The amount of time and pages is determined by the teacher and verified with the student.
Daily written work includes math practice from Everyday Math and supplimental materials. Students will have weekly assignments or other individualized math practice.
We will be providing virtual field trips throughout the year for our fifth grade students from sources such as the National Parks Service, the Smithsonian and other available opportunities.
