5th Grade Summer Reading
Please check Ms. Sexton's webpage for the summer reading list.
The first two weeks of the 2022-2023 school year will begin with a basic review of all four operations of whole numbers.
We will then delve into the fifth grade standards. These standards cover an enormous amount of calculating with whole numbers, decimal numbers, and fractions. Students will learn the processes and must be able to apply that knowledge to problem solving.
YOUR CHILD WILL STRUGGLE IN 5th GRADE IF THEY DO NOT KNOW MULTIPLICATION FACTS.
Practice those over the summer. We use the facts every day from day 2 until day 180.
