Hello Parents

Today math was tough. They are learning to write numbers with decimals to the 1/1000 place value. They must be able to write them in standard form and expanded form – there is a “new 5th grade version of expanded form” that is difficult for many of the students. I attached a copy of the worksheet with an example just in case your student needs help, he/she should also have their “Math ISN” with them. There is a foldable with place value in it that we made yesterday. This should help. Please ask them to complete the work for tomorrow.

Spelling notebooks are also due tomorrow. If the word in the “frayer model box” is a content word then the definition from that area must be used (math definition for math word). Your student has the content definitions in a content notebook.

A letter also came home today about the Cipriano Memorial Run if your family is interested.

As always thanks for all your support.

During Ramadan I will do my best not to assign homework. The students will be tired and I will do my best to respect that. This will require them to work hard and pay attention while they are in class so they can finish their work. Please talk to your student and encourage them to get everything done in class and not waste their time and I for sure will do the same and respect the season.

There is no math due tomorrow. We work on ratios, decimals and percents in class.

IXL HH.1 , HH.2, HH.3 is due on Friday.


The “Matter” worksheet is due tomorrow but was done in class.

Everyone please remember the field trip is tomorrow, Wednesday, May 24.

Remember to bring a lunch and a drink (no glass bottles) also bring an extra water bottle.

You can bring money to buy your lunch or snacks – only if you want to.

Dress comfortably – we are going rain or shine so wear a baseball hat and bring a jacket or raincoat just in case.


If you are not going on the trip and plan to stay home make sure your parent calls the school to let them know.
