5th Grade Math

Sumner Attendance Center

This Week

This week, 5th graders are working with fractions and relating them to division. We will do this by using models and the standard algorithm. At the end of the week, we will begin learning about multiplying fractions. There will be a quiz on Friday over lessons 4-6. Lesson 6 on Zearn is due this Friday as well.

Fifth graders are expected to know their multiplication facts. They will not be allowed to use a multiplication chart in class. If your student needs a set of flash cards to practice at home, please let me know, and I will get them a set. Several students have already asked for these and received them.

As always, 5th grade assignments for the week can be found here. Homework helpers and videos can be found on the 5th grade website.


Any assignment that has a "Please Correct" stamped or written on it can be corrected and turned back in for partial credit. This can be done with assistance from a parent or teacher. The new work must be shown and papers must be turned in by the end of the quarter to get credit!

Students who have completed all required levels of Zearn will receive a prize at the end of the school year. Students may work on this at home. However, students may not have help on the "Tower of Power" section. Students already have their username and password written in the front of their planner.

If your child needs extra help with math, he or she may come to my room before school. I am at school by 7:40 each morning. I am also available during recess if a student talks to me beforehand.
