Southeast 5th Grade

Here's what's happening on Synergize Street January 6, 2016

Math--Topic 7: Dividing Decimals

As we begin the new quarter we are starting a new math unit. We will be combining our knowledge of decimals, division, and multiplying decimals by 10, 100, and 1,000 to divide whole and decimal numbers by decimals. We will spend about 2 weeks on this unit.

Just a reminder as we come back from a long winter break, it is very important for 5th graders to know their multiplication facts forwards and backwards in order to solve bigger multiplication and division problems. Keep practicing them every night!

English Language Arts

This quarter, we begin reading and writing about arguments. This week we will focus in reading on reading for research as we think about topics that we have opinions about. We will look at how to read for information that supports or goes against our claim. Next week, we will begin to incorporate writing into this work.


In Science we are learning about the human impact on water resources. This week we will be in groups working in different areas on the impact humans have to our environment.

Social Studies

In Social Studies we are learning about the American Revolution. This week we are learning about one of the reasons for the American Revolution: the French and Indian War. We will work in groups to discuss the perspectives of the French, Native Americans, and the British. Then we will create a movie trailer for a documentary on the French and Indian War. We will watch movie trailers in class next Wednesday. I'm looking forward to seeing what these groups can do!
