Week of December 7th
This Week in Math...
In independent work and centers, students will continue to practice prime & composite numbers and simplifying fractions. Students will also work on making test corrections, practicing and taking retests on any SOL in which they have not yet achieved 80%.
Students will take the 5.3 Test on Friday which focuses on prime/composite and odd/even numbers. The study guide will come home on Monday and is due on Thursday. Please take time to review the study guide with your child.
Hour of Code
At TES, students will participate in the Hour of Code during their Library resource time this week. Fifth graders will also code in the math classroom by creating an interactive holiday card using Scratch, an easy to use coding program.
Check out Mrs. Downey's digital newsletter for information about how you can incorporate the Hour of Code at home!
