Students will take home both math textbooks today.  These are to stay at home.  Students may work through the lessons that they need to at any time.  My hope is that this will help families at home with lessons that we are working on in class.

Semester Exam Review

The 5th Grade Semester Exam will be on Tuesday, December 16.  Today, all students received a review.  This review has questions like the semester exam will have.  I attached an answer key for the kids to check their answers.  Please have your child ready for any questions that they may have on Monday.  That is when we will go over the review.
