Here are the links to the Math and Science Common Core Objectives and Essential Standards that we will be learning this year.

**
Math INFO -For the second nine weeks, we will working on fractions and mixed numbers( addition,subraction,multiplication and division)**

PLEASE BE SURE THAT YOUR CHILD KNOWS THEIR MULTIPLICATION TABLES... practice- practice -practice !!!!

The math book we use is en Vision Math. It has a practice workbook that aligns with the math book. Homework is usually an assignment in the workbook or math problems that give students more practice on the lesson taught that day.

Homework is given to reinforce the concept taught earlier that day. Please check over your child's homework each night and encourage them to ask me questions on material they do not understand. With most homework assignments, I am not checking for right or wrong answers. What I look for is that the students attempted the assignment. Students are then allowed to make corrections to their homework as we go over it. Then they may ask questions on ones they missed.

Also, although I give homework on most nights, students usually have time to start (maybe finish) their homework during the school day. However,I still ask your child to bring their homework home for you to look over.

**Science INFO-Science is an EOG tested subject in 5th grade **

For the second nine weeks in Science we will be learning about ecosystems.

Although we usually read the Science lessons in class, please have your child re-read it to you at home. This helps with comprehension, as well as reading fluency. Students may have Science homework occasionally in the form of vocabulary, worksheets, reading assignments and small projects. Many times these assignments may become a grade, and they are given time in class to complete these assignments.
