Fifth Grade At Home Learning
May 4 - May 8, 2020
I have recommended some new reading skills to practice on IXL. These are skills we would have gotten to in Wonders.
Don't forget to read your 20 minutes each day. Share what you read on Edmodo. If you are not doing the Readworks articles, I hope you are at least doing a lot of reading on your own!!
Listen to the chapters from The War I Finally Won and answer the question about the chapter of the day. We are getting very close to the end. Only ten chapters left! What is going to happen?!
Answer the question of the day on Edmodo WRITING with complete sentences and proper mechanics. Some of you seem to have forgotten what a complete sentence is and continue to just write a short answer. This is a skill on our report cards!!
Do 5 Minute GRAMMAR on Edmodo. Quiz on Friday!
Do the math review posted on Edmodo each day and take the quiz on Friday. When I post the answers for Monday's review, I have been posting explanations of how to work the problems. They are the same type of problem for the whole week. Make sure to check those out if you don't understand how to do any of the problems.
Continue to practice your math skills on www.ixl.com. I have made some more recommendations of skills to practice. This week there are some on measurement. Some of you have been working really hard and have answered a lot of questions on IXL. That is so awesome to see!!!!
If you are having difficulty finding the recommended skills, the picture below shows where they are.
Go to Edmodo and look for the SCIENCE post on this lesson and answer the questions posted there.
