Fifth Grade News to Know
Crissey Elementary School
Mrs. Meeker's Class
In math class we are working on multiplying and dividing decimals. We will continue this after winter break with the test the second week in January. If you have any questions about math class, please contact me through email or Class Dojo and I usually get back to you quickly. I do not send home math practice using the alternative strategies such as models. This is to avoid frustration and confusion. I introduce the models in class and help the students practice with them so that they are prepared for testing in the late spring. I understand that they are different than how parents learned, but can be helpful for some students to understand a different way to solve problems. The homework I send home is following the traditional multiplication and division algorithm.
