Stamford and State Grade Level Expectations



During December students are continuing their State Reports. We have used State Research Books, The Internet, and IPADS. We have practiced notetaking strategies and transforming these notes into written pieces.




Unit 5 in Everyday Math is on fractions and decimals. Students will learn how to add, subtract, and multiply fractions. They will also learn how to convert decimals to fractions and fractions to percents. .



This month we are doing many experiments in science. We are learning all about sound. We will complete experiments to illustrate how sound waves travel through vibrations. We will learn important words such as, transmit, reflect, and absorb. You child will also be tested on all of the parts of the ear at the end of this unit.

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.
