It has been a great start to fifth grade! I am looking forward to an exciting year!
In Math, we are beginning our first unit on whole numbers and decimals in the place value system. We are happy to have a new math series, Go Math!, that is being used a resource district-wide.

In Science, we have just started our first unit "Mixtures and Solutions". This is a new science kit that we are doing in 5th grade this year to support the NGSS standards. Students this week are learning about mixtures, different tools to separate mixtures, and the components of a solution. They are enjoying many hands on experiments using gravel, salt, sand, and water.
We are also focusing on the he structure of informational text.
