Science & Social Studies
I have sent home a Social Studies Milestones Study Guide with every 5th grade student. I would love for your student(s) to review this packet of key terms for 15 minutes nightly. This packet is a great resource for content covered the entire school year.
As far as Science, I have previously sent home a study guide, but may send another one home next week.
Students are encouraged to log on www.educationgalaxy.com for further review in all subject areas.

We are so excited to be in a trial period with IXL! In math class, I am working with students to create a study plan leading up to Milestones. You can also check the monthly focus for ideas of what topics students could use practice on (all subjects)
Class Dojo can be accessed to review behavior and classroom updates. You can also send direct messages to teachers or view classroom announcements.
Use education galaxy to practice your math, ELA, science and social studies skills. Please have your student work under the "My Study Plan" section, as "Assignments" must be completed at school.
