Stamford and State Grade Level Expectations

 

Literacy:

Opinion Unit Students will have many opportunities to engage with relevant and credible sources. This unit is structured into five modules called sequences. Each sequence includes learning objectives, focus questions and sequence steps. The sequences build on each other therefore; it is intended for the parts to be taught in order.

 

 

Math:

Unit 6 Investigations in Measurement; Decimal Multiplication and Division. Students apply their understanding of place value to multiply and divide decimals by powers of 10. They investigate how patterns in powers of 10 can be used to convert measurements in metric units, learn how line plots can be used to organize and analyze measurement data, and explore a method of finding volumes of figures that are not rectangular prisms.

 

Science :

Sound and Light : Scientists have a special name for how they think things work. They call them theories. Scientists use research and inquiry to test theories. In these Explorations, students will learn things about sound and light. Students will create and test theories about sound and light. You test a theory by running an experiment.

Homework

Although each homework assignment is different, we do have similar expectations for all fifth grade work.  We ask that the students always write both their first and last names, as well as today's date on each assignment.

Of course, students should also be sure to proofread their work after they have completed it.  Proofreading includes first reading over the work to be sure it makes sense and says what you want it to say.  Then, students should check for proper spelling and grammar, especially use of capital letters and punctuation at the end of sentences.  It is so important to show your best work at all times.

At this point, students should be able to do most of their homework independently or with a small amount of assistance.  Parents, we ask you to please check that your child has finished his/her homework, and sign the agenda book each evening.  there is also a space for notes to the teacher if you should need to let us know something.

We thank you for your support in the monitoring of homework.
