Please visit the Resources link on the main fifth grade website (located in the right bar menu) I recently added a link to family letters related to our math curriculum. This is an excellent resource for parents at home as reference for our upcoming math units. We are currently working on unit 2.2 on the fifth grade page. A hard copy of this letter also went home in binders.
