Zearn math accounts have been created for each student. Every student has been given a username and password. It should be attached to their homework agenda cover.

We are working towards being able to go deeper and understand why it works. Therefore, please encourage and support taking the time to work on Zearn at home too. Our class code is HH4X8F.

READING AT HOME
Is reading part of your family's daily routine?

Reading is the most important skill because it is the basis for learning throughout the school day.

Reading takes practice.

Make reading a part of your family's daily routine.

*Read every night with your child or along side your child.
*Ask your child to occasionally read aloud and listen to how they're able to read with fluency-expression, accuracy, rate, phrasing, and punctuation.
*We will be working on reading more fluently in the classroom with weekly goals. What will be your child's goal this week?
"The habits we form from childhood make no small difference, but rather they make all the difference." -Aristotle

E.L.A. READING LOG
*Our fifth grade homework expectation of students is to read a minimum of 80 minutes per week. The students are working on weekly reading goals. Can you exceed the expectation?
