Grades 5 and 6
Ms. Kim Arganda
We will be wrapping up our first quarter units, and we will move on to reading more complex texts, writing research reports and essays, and solving real-world problems about decimals. To support your child in reading or practicing math skills for homework, please encourage them to take notes about important details and ask them questions about how they can prove their answers.
Because our focus this year is showing responsibility and accountability in one’s learning, opportunities to improve their work are provided for students. Students are allowed to redo any assignment to get a higher score. For end-of-chapter tests and performance tasks, students are also given a chance to correct their work and get half of the points for parts they improved. Remedials are also available every afternoon for students who need help with assignments.
With the enthusiasm that the class has shown in the first quarter, I look forward to seeing our 5th and 6th graders continue to learn and have fun.
