    • Multiple Choice: Select one answer
    • Multi-Select: More than one answer should be chosen
    • Two Part: Two questions pertaining to the same topic
    • Gridded Response: Write and bubble the responses on a grid

    Helping Your Child:

    • Help your child to realize that it is important to do their best every day, as well as on the FSA
    • Review homework with your child
    • Help your child practice the skills they are learning in reallife situations so that the skills have meaning beyond the tests and the classroom
    • Help your child get a good night’s sleep, eat a nutritious breakfast, and arrive on time to school

  • Measurement

    Posted by Bronwyn Chen on 2/11/2019

    Measurement

    Essential Questions:

    • How can I convert measurements to larger or smaller units within the same measurement system?
    • How are measurements related within the metric system?
    • How are measurements related within the customary system?
    • How can I use a two-column chart to record and convert measurements within the same system?
    • How can I solve real world measurement problems?
    • How can diagrams help me solve real world measurement problems?

    In this unit, students will be able to:

    • Convert within the same metric units of measurement: kilometer (km), meter (m), millimeter (mm), centimeter (cm), liter (l), milliliter (ml).
    • Convert within the same customary units of measurement: pound (lb), ounce (oz), foot (ft), inch (in), hour (hr), minute (min), second (sec).
    • Use a two-column chart to convert from larger to smaller units and smaller to larger units then record equivalent measurements.
    • Use all four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals.
    • Use diagrams (e.g., linear model) to solve word problems.

     

    Vocabulary

    Cup - A customary unit used to measure liquid volume.

    Fluid Ounce - The smalles customary unit for measuring liquid volume.

    Pint - A customary unit used to measure liquid volume.

    Quart - A customary unit used to measure liquid volume.

    Gallon - A customary unit used to measure liquid volume

    Liter - A metric unit used to measure liquid volume.

    Meter - A metric unit used to measure length or distance.

    Ton - A customary unit used to measure weight.

    Pound - A customary unit used to measure weight.

    Ounce - A customary unit used to measure weight.

  • Area and Perimeter

    Posted by Bronwyn Chen on 1/27/2019

    We are currently working on area and perimeter.

    Students will learn and use the formulas this year.

    Area = Length x Width

    Perimeter = (2 x length) + (2 x width)

     

     

    Here are some videos about area and perimeter:

  • Relate Fractions to Decimals

    Posted by Bronwyn Chen on 1/7/2019

    In this unit, students will learn:

    • the value of tenths and hundredths 
    • a number can be represented as both a fraction and a decimal (.1 =1/10 or .32 = 32/100)
    • decimal notation (write numbers in standard form 0.62)
    • comparisons are valid only when two decimals refer to the same whole
    • Compare decimals using visual models and symbols.
    • Add two fractions with unlike denominators of 10 and 100

  • Adding & Subtracting Fractions

    Posted by Bronwyn Chen on 11/5/2018

    Essential Questions:

    • How do adding and subtracting fractions help me in everyday life?
    • How can I join fractions with like denominators?
    • How can I separate fractions with like denominators?
    • How can I convert a fraction greater than 1 into a mixed number?
    • How can I add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators?
    • How can I represent unit fractions in a line plot?
    • How can I add and subtract fractions found in a line plot?

    In this unit, students will be able to:

    • Join (compose) fractions of the same whole
    • Separate (decompose) fractions of the same whole in various ways (e.g.
    • Justify decompositions (e.g., by using a visual fraction model).
    • Convert a fraction greater than one (formerly referred to as an improper fraction) into a sum of a whole number and a number less than one
    • Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators using various strategies (e.g., replacing each number with an equivalent fraction, and/or by using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction).
    • Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions with like denominators (e.g., by using visual
      fraction models and equations to represent the problem.
