Because of how serious I am that you do a good job on the writing you do not have a separate reading assignment (you should be reading everyday anyways).

MATH:

I still must give you math today and tomorrow. So today you are going to practice a skill so that when the ice-cream truck comes driving down your street the driver doesn’t steal your change or over charge you!

*****Go to 5th grade math IXL to “S Money” and do the very last one****.

*** Math IXL S – New! Find the number of each coin***

Please get close to 100 on this – you need this skill.

SOCIAL STUDIES:

I know I am sorry – I have to give you Social Studies – but I will make you a deal. You have to read pages 168 – 170 in the online book which is the “Ratification of the Constitution” and then go to googleclassroom and you tell me 4 things that you feel are seriously important about what you read. You decide. You decide smartly.

Tuesday, June 3rd!! Hello my ever so happy working 5th graders. I know you are starting to get so sad because after today there is only 2 more “5th grade working days left” but don’t worry you still have work to go.

Remember you only have two new assignments today because I want to give anyone who has ANY MISSING WORK extra time to get it done TODAY. PLEASE DO NOT PUT IT OFF – I need to start working towards getting report cards started.

LANGUAGE ARTS:

You will need to read and answer questions in Readworks. Today’s questions are a combination of comprehension, cause and effect, and inference. Please do your best to get a good score the first time (70% or higher). If you don’t I will reassign it to you. Think of this as a reading test. Please DO NOT HELP EACH OTHER WITH THIS ONE. You may ask a parent to HELP you but not a FREIND FOR THE ANSWER.

****READWORKS – Endangered Animals at a Glance*****(this passage goes along with science)

MATH:

Today you have a CHOICE of assignments that have to do with volume. You need to do ONE of the following:

Choice #1 — Math IXL EE (new) – Compare volumes and dimensions of rectangular prisms (word problems) – 90 or higher

OR

Choice #2 — Calculate the total volume of a “Box creation” – you will need at least 5 boxes, a ruler, paper, tape, calculator and a camera (phone camera). Follow these directions:

  1. Create a sculpture or object with your boxes.
  2. Measure the width, length and height of each box (rectangular prism) and record on paper – you can use sticky notes or tape little pieces of paper. (remember L = length, H= height, W = width). Measure in inches and you can round to the nearest inch.
  3. Calculate the volume (remember Volume = L x H x W) of each rectangular prism and record on paper. Remember when you calculate the volume the unit changes to inches cubed – it will look like “in” with a little 3 as an exponent.
  4. Add all the volumes together on separate paper and label total volume of ________________(whatever you build).
  5. Take a few pictures and send them to me – make sure everything is labeled like the pictures below.

Use the following picture as an example (you make your own creation).

******Now finish any and all missing assignments***** you may still have and EMAIL ME WHEN THEY ARE FINISHED. If you have a good reason that you can’t finish then please email or text me today so we can talk about it.

You don’t need to read all the following examples but read some to help you understand:

Laura could do cartwheels when she was younger.

Could you bring me that book?The verb may shows possibilitygiving permission, or a request for permission.

Ben may be able to come tomorrow.

You may leave early if you’ve turned in your test.

May I be excused from the table?The verb might shows possibility.Jessica might join the swim team.The verb must shows necessity or near certainty.

Monday, June 1 -Ok everyone here are the lessons and assignments for the day. Please remember to get them done even though it feels like summer outside. Remember to let me know if there is a reason you can’t – we will work something out. We only have FIVE more days of regular work – you got this – stay strong!

LANGUAGE ARTS:

READING:

Today you need to carefully read your Social Studies and comprehend it to answer several questions, so for today the reading part of Language Arts will just be to read your chapter book for 30 minutes. I will trust that you will read for real because you know reading helps your brain and I am asking you to. Think of it as “read to self”.

WRITING/GRAMMAR/MECHANICS

Today you will be reading sentences and labeling the “main verb” which is the action/doing words and the “helping verb” which is the word that helps the verb.

If you need a reminder about helping verbs watch this video.

*****Do 5th grade Language Arts IXL JJ.1*****

MATH:

For math today you will need your Learn book. You need to go to lessons 4 and 5 and choose any three problems you want to solve in each of the lessons. Please do it for real. At this point I am not sure how or if we are collecting them but you want to have everything done just in case. Next you will need to do an IXL about volume and try to reach 80 or higher. *****Do 5th grade math IXL EE.16*****

You will read and answer questions about a president that did great things during the beginning of our country but it is not George Washington. Please remember to read (and listen) carefully. If you are unhappy with your score let me know and I can reset it. This counts for reading and History/Social Studies.

****Do the assigned READWORKS – “Remembering a Forgotten President”****

SPELLING/VOCABULARY:

Today you will focus on looking at the “root” of the word to understand the meaning. Read this over before you start the assignment.

root is a part of a word that has a certain meaning. Words that share the same root often have similar meanings that are related to the meaning of the root. For example:The root phon means sound.

A xylophone is a musical instrument with wooden bars that are hit by small hammers.

Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings.

A telephone is a machine that can carry the sound of someone’s voice over a long distance.All of these meanings relate to the concept of sound.

Please watch this important video:

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Language Arts is going to be shorter today because you will be reading a passage and answering questions in science.

READING:

Today you will read an article in Readworks and answer questions. It is about outer space because our next story in Treasures is about space. Since there is only one please do your best to answer the questions correctly and write good sentences when asked. The name of the passage is ****”To the Moon and Back” (in Readworks)****.

MATH:

Today you are going to figure out the missing angle in a triangle and in a quadrilateral. There are two super important facts you need to know.

The first is IN A TRIANGLE ALL ANGLES MUST ADD UP TO 180 DEGREES. So if you have a triangle and one angle is 100 degrees and another angle is 30 degrees then the third angle must be …… 50 degrees because 100+30+50=180.

Watch this **video** to understand it more…..(don’t worry it is short and has cool music to it).

Missing angles in a triangle video:

The second new thing you need to know is that in a QUADRILATERAL (4-sided and 4-angle polygon) ALL THE ANGLES MUST ADD UP TO 360 DEGREES. So if you have a quadrilateral and one angle in it is 100 degrees and another is 100 degrees and the third angle is 100 degrees then the last angle ….must be 60 degrees because 100+100+100+60=360.

Watch this video to make things more clear….(sorry no cool music – just an annoying voice).

Missing angle in a quadrilateral video:

Now do ****5th grade math ixl AA.6****

SCIENCE:

Today you are going to go to*** googleclassroom and do the assignment on Food Webs***. You will have to read a passage so it also counts for informational reading.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

LESSONS FOR MONDAY, MAY 11th – Today’s lessons are due Tuesday. If there is something that comes up that makes working difficult please contact me and we can work out a plan.

READING:

Today you assigned two articles in ****READWORKS****. The first one is really short and about lizards! Yes lizards!!! So cool right?! The second one is about honey bees – pretty sweet right!?

****5th grade Language Arts IXL V.6****

MATH:

This week we will be jumping into Module 5’s lessons BUT do not throw away any of your books (module 4 and 6) – we will be coming back to them. This week we will be working on geometry. There are a few things you need to remember before we get started… they are…

1. Quadrilateral = polygons with FOUR sides

2. polygon = a shape made with straight lines that do NOT cross and the shape has no openings

3. Parallelogram = quadrilateral (4 sides) that has TWO pairs of parallel sides

4. rectangle = quadrilaterals (4 sides) that have FOUR RIGHT ANGLES (90 degrees)

5. trapezoid = quadrilateral with ONLY ONE pair of parallel sides

6. Right triangle = triangle with one right angle (90 degrees)

7. Obtuse triangle = a triangle with one obtuse angle (greater than 90 degrees)

8. Acute triangle = triangle with ALL ANGLES THAT ARE ACUTE (smaller than 90 degrees)

!!! If we were in school you would be quizzed on the definition of the above – You need to know them for 6th grade. !!! You should make flashcards and practice the definitions.

Please watch the video – the cartoon guy will teach you about trapezoids – then do the IXL assignments.

!! If you didn’t watch the videos PLEASE DO WATCH THEM !!

****5th grade Math IXL BB.1 and BB.7 and BB.8****

Do NOT panic these IXLs are short – they will not take you long but they are excellent practice. Just take your time.

DAILY LESSONS FOR THURSDAY, APRIL 16TH

***REMEMBER ALL IXL WORK MUST BE 5TH GRADE LEVEL***

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Today we are mixing language arts with social studies and science. You will have a writing assignment that involves social studies and a reading assignment that involve science – cool right? (stop rolling your eyes – I can sense some of you are)

WRITING:

You will need your social studies notes from yesterday (it is the work you did in googleclassroom) — so if you didn’t do it you are BUSTED! If you didn’t do yesterday’s Social Studies you will have to do it first and then this assignment…ugh … double the work.

You need to go to googleclassroom and follow the directions for the writing assignment on The Boston Massacre and The Boston Tea Party.

**Social Studies IXL G.2 and G.3 are DUE ON MONDAY BUT if you do them today they might help you with your writing assignment.** Some of you already did G.2.

MATH:

First let’s talk about IXL – guys I am not at your house so I can’t be my sparkling self and explain things super duper well like in the classroom – IXL is a tool that will help me help you. For this reason you must do all of it. I used it when I taught middle school so I know it will help BUT you have to do it.

Many of you did not complete U.6 Quandrants – please do it (it was assigned Tuesday).

You also need to do Math IXL D.2 Division Practice – we have to keep things fresh you guys and it’s not hard it will help with your speed.

Now for our math program – Watch the video, read and hi-light the homework helper and do the lesson 17 in Succeed. Really do the work in Succeed – we will be collecting the books at some point.

SCIENCE:

Science is simple but needed. We need to wrap up the hydrosphere (remember that hydro = water). There is a GOOGLECLASSROOM ASSIGNMENT – short passages with five questions ….AND….

***SCIENCE IXL U.2 AND SCIENCE IXL U.3**** MUST DO

DAILY LESSONS FOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 15TH

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Today language arts will be different. One reason is that for Social Studies you will need to read and really learn the stuff – it is important.

Another reason is – I checked Readtheory and only a few have you have done any this week. Remember you need 125 knowledge points by Friday BUT and here is the problem – your reading level must be as high as you can get it. The current goal for you right now is 5.7. I know some of you are working towards that goal and that is fine – no one should be at the 1st or 2nd grade level. Have someone help you or email me if you need help – we can facetime or something to raise that score. EVERYONE SPEND AT LEAST 20 MINUTES ON READTHEORY. (For the few of you that already have your points for this week AND are ABOVE grade level – you don’t have to do this today.)

***Go to GoogleClassroom and answer the technology questions – Ms. Sabbagh, our new principal, needs the info.***

MATH:

No video or book work today. Instead you have two IXL assignments on symmetry – these lessons are important because they help you prepare for lesson 17. You also have a division practice assignment. Because this is new stuff you will need to click on the “learn by example” words before you start to answer – I took of picture of it so you know what I am talking about. Remember when you make a mistake always read the “explanation”.

Click and read this first before you start.

Math IXL CC.1 Line Symmetry

Math IXL CC.2 Rotation Symmetry

Math IXL D.1 Division Practice

SOCIAL STUDIES:

As mentioned above – you will have to read several pages in the online Social Studies book to learn about the Boston Massacre (warning …it is kind of violent) and The Boston Tea Party. Make sure as you read you learn facts about each of those events – you will have to list at least five facts about each of them in G.C. and tomorrow you will write about them.

Watch the videos on the Boston Massacre and the Liberty Kids Episode 1 video before you do your notes in GC – you will learn more facts.

*Both of these events led up to the American Revolution so they are important.*

Boston Massacre video: (it is a little violent – please make sure no younger siblings are near you)

Liberty Kids Episode 1 – The Boston Tea Party: if the video doesn’t work you can google it – it is on utube.

TUESDAY, APRIL 14TH’S LESSONS:

For IXL assignments it is super important that if you make a mistake you take the time to read the “explanation” – that is the only way you will learn from your mistakes. You also need to get a score of at least 80 – preferably closer to 100.

G.C. = Googleclassroom

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Read the story, “Spirit of Endurance” in your Treasure Book pages 519-533. I chose this story because it involves how people interact with the hydrosphere (the earth system that is water), has ships that look like the ones in Social Studies and involves humans interacting with the earth.

Go to G.C. and answer the four questions that are in the directions.

No Language Arts IXL today – don’t be too sad.

MATH:

Watch the video for lesson 16. This lesson will teach you how to construct perpendicular lines in a grid with a line segment and how to analyze the relationship of coordinate pairs.

Go to Zearn – you should see lesson 18 on Zearn because it skips a few lessons. There are six students who need to still work in Zearn – if you see 18 then you have no Zearn – if you don’t see 18 then you must catch up today.

Read the “homework helper” in your book and hi-light important stuff and complete lesson 16 – you may want to watch the video if it helps.

MATH IXL U.5 – Objects in a coordinate plane

MATH IXL D.1 – Division practice

SCIENCE:

Read the Newsela article- “Science-Water-on-Earth” – you have to download it – read slowly and think of what you are learning about …. Earth’s hydrosphere – anything that involves water…and how the hydrosphere interacts with the other systems of the earth. When you finish reading please go to googleclassroom and follow the directions on how to answer.

When you are finished with googleclassroom to SCIENCE IXL U.2

Monday, April 13th’s lessons:

For IXL assignments it is super important that if you make a mistake you take the time to read the “explanation” – that is the only way you will learn from your mistakes. You also need to get a score of at least 80 – preferably closer to 100.

G.C. = Googleclassroom

LANGUAGE ARTS:

Treasure Book – Read pages 516-517 – Ice and More Ice. After you read the two pages you will need to go to G.C. (googleclassroom) and type in the 8 vocabulary words that are hi-lighted in yellow and tell me what the word means based on the story — not a dictionary or google definition. Also look at the Problem and Solution Chart on page 517 and see if you could fill it out if you had to.

You will need to complete two IXL in the “language arts”.

The first one is O.2 – “Using coordinate conjunctions”.

The second one is O.3 – “Choosing best transitions”.

This week you will need to earn 125 knowledge points in Readtheory. If I were you I would do a little everyday. Keep an eye on your grade level – you should be around 5.7 – if you are not please ask a parent or older sibling to read with you.

MATH:

Today you will only do IXL lessons. These lessons will help you prepare for the next lessons in our math program. Remember if you make a mistake take the time to read the “explanation” that is how you learn. You need to get at least 80 – but preferably closer to 100. These lessons should not take you long – they are pretty fun.

AA.4 – Lines (arrow on both sides), Line segments (part of a line with not arrows, rays (has an endpoint and one arrow)

AA.6 – Types of Angles (review)

AA.8 – Measures with a Protractor (the protractor is on the screen)

AA.7 – Angles of 90, 180, 270 and 360 degrees (if you make a mistake make sure you read the explanation – this is new-ish)

SOCIAL STUDIES:

Open another window and open the online social studies book – it is a link under social studies on the right side of your screen in case you forgot. READ pages 119-120 carefully. You will be learning about a man names Charles Townshend who worked for King George. He placed more “acts” on those poor colonists…so not fair.

Watch this short video:

Now go to G.C. write a well constructed paragraph explaining the Townshend Acts. Read the directions carefully.
