    May 17th- Math STAAR for 5th grade

    May 19th- Science STAAR for 5th grade

    May 24th- Graduation @ 6


    We have finished learning all the math skills needed for 5th grade.  We will spend the rest of the year going over any skills that we are still struggling with. I posted students practice STAAR test grade in skyward so you can see. The best way to support your child between now and STAAR will be to encourage them to complete their homework. The students will come home with the daily rigor homework on Mondays and it will be due the following Monday.  This is a review of most skills for 5th grade and I will go over the homework with them once they turn it in.  We will also be doing a spiral review in class that covers the skills that they are struggling with the most.  These will also be sent home after they complete it.  Going over these will significantly help them to improve their skills. 

    I will also be sending home text books if you feel that additional resources are needed.  Khan academy is also a great resource that includes video  with practice problems.  Thank you so much for supporting us.
