Math--Topic 7: Dividing Decimals
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!

We also used our research to debate our topics. Students really enjoyed showing what they had learned and forming their argument. At the end of the debate we have a class vote to see who won. Check with your child on their results!
Today, we were all given a bag of Skittles (10) and then we learned about taxes. It is all blah, blah, blah when we learn about the Stamp Act, Townsend Acts, and other taxes until there are Skittles involved! Tensions run high very quickly when forced to pay taxes. We will be doing a lot of different simulations as we learn about the American Revolution, so don't forget to ask your child what they did in Social Studies today.
