MAP Math – May 27

We have set up a website for all the 5th grade classes this year. Please check it out! http://www.fifthgradeteam.weebly.com

CLASS WEBSITE:

In math this week, we did a few lessons from Unit 9 which focused on multiplying fractions. Students practiced multiplying fractions using division and other strategies. We will continue with some of this unit after we return from camp. We also continued with our IB Unit of Inquiry titled Environments. The central idea of this planner is that all living things depend on the conditions in their environment. This week we discussed how living things adapt to their environments. We also looked into our Social Studies books to read about how American Indians settled in and adapted to different environments when they first came to North America. The summative assessment for this planner was introduced and students will begin this after we return from camp. We also continued with our final book club of the year. Our class is reading the book Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. This adventurous book about outdoor survival fits right in with our Environments planner. Please note that there may be some days where students have homework for this book club. This week in DARE, Officer Just reviewed how to make good choices. Students read about different situations involving peer pressure and discussed ways to handle them. During our last DARE meeting after camp, Officer Just will explain the DARE Essay that each student will have to write before the end of the year. Next week, we will spend most of our week at camp! Have a great weekend! See you bright and early on Monday morning (by 8:15am). Don’t be late!!! 
