We will continue our study of turning fractions into decimals using division. Please make sure that your child is comfortable with this as they can not use a calculator and it really is the cornerstone for understanding how to compare and order fractions and decimals. The test for this unit will be on Friday, January 12.
In reading we are still working on fiction. Please make sure that your chlid has a book and is reading it for the book report that is due on January 31. This will be the due date, even if we have snow days, so please help me encourage them to bring home their book to read every night.
For a lot of information regarding fifth grade field trips and middle school, please see last week's blog post.
