Mrs. Hunt's Classroom News
Blythe Elementary 5th grade
What are we learning?
Math- We are beginning our decimal unit. We learned yesterday how to write decimals in different forms (standard, expanded, word). We will be moving into how to add, subtract, multiply and divide. One way to practice with decimals at home is with shopping ads. Tell your child they have $10.00 to spend and ask how many things they can buy from the ad.
Science- We have begun a new unit on Forces and Motion. This is a very fun unit where students learn all about how and why things move (or don't move). We will also be learning about Newton's Laws. This is a very fun and hands on unit.
Social Studies- We are still integrating social studies into our reading block. We are still comparing and contrasting time periods.
Next Monday February 15th was supposed to be a teacher workday. Because of the snow we this day is now a makeup day. Do not forget to send your child to school.
Pencils- Number 2- Ticonderoga works best in our sharpener
