Mr. M Band Update
As we are working hard in 5th grade, we've noticed that a few of our school supplies have been dwindling. If you would like to help our house out and donate more supplies, we would greatly appreciate it. Here are the supplies that we are in need of:
- Eraser tops
- Dry erase markers
- Pens (not erasable)
- Loose leaf
- Clorox wipes
- Headphones (if your child doesn't have them yet)
Strategy this week:
There are elements in a story that some readers believe are true. Our job as a reader is to read and think critically, analyze what is happening, and offer a solid opinion to support our reason.

With the Wisconsin State Froward test, students have been independently working on tasks to get them prepared. From coordinate graphing to solving expressions, your child has been widening their math knowledge.
Next week will be starting to wrap up Unit 6 with a second quiz on Tuesday. Students will be assessed on word problems involving all operations in fractions, decimals, and whole numbers.
Finally your child needs to have their math take home folder signed for Monday. Please take a look at their Unit 6 Quiz. I've encouraged the students to make corrections on their quiz to prepare for quiz 2. Here is a link to the signing sheet if your child lost his/hers.

This week, we continued our ratio unit. We found equivalent ratios by scaling up and down. We also used double number lines, tables, and graphs to represent equivalent ratios. Our last lesson of the unit focuses on unit rates, and determining which is the better buy - a real-world skill! Our ratio assessment will be Wednesday, April 20th.
