Dear Parents  I apologize for my absence from my homework site  My daughter in Penn State was sick and I was getting ready to go to Penn State at a moments notice to take her to the ER  But thankfully she finally saw the campus doctor and she is fine.
Today in all classes we are reviewing for a test
The test for all classes will be tomorrow  Thursday 11/15/18  We also reviewed yesterday.
5A the test is on Chapter 3 sections 1 to 13
5B the test is on chapter 4 sections 1 to 3
Thursday 11/8/18
5A  Since the students were struggling still with double digit division  Mrs. Logan and I split up the class  So we could give more individual attention to the students. It went really well! We moved onto larger number division. Basically it's the same thing  so more practice!
Homework workbook page 35 #2,4,6,8 divide and check
5B  We spent the whole period on factors 
1) finding ALL the factor's of a number
2) deciding if it's prime or composite
The students felt like they were done once they found one or two factors  so we talked about checking every number 1 to 10 to see if it goes into the number we are factoring out.
Tomorrow we will do prime factorization!
Homework page 41 #120
Wednesday 11/7/18
5A  we are working on double digit division (say that three times fast:) The students are struggling with it. They are having trouble with multiplying the quotient with two numbers in the divisor. They just want to multiply by one of the numbers. They are also having trouble with guessing the quotient. It is a guessing game. You guess, the multiply, then subtract, then see if it was the right number then go on or erase and start over, It is a lot of work. We will continue to work on it. Part of the problem is that some of the students are still struggling with their multiplication facts. If possible  please work on their times tables at home, that would really help! We'll work on it in school too :)
Homework workbook page 35 # 2, 4, 6, and 8 divide and check
5B  and we are off  they are doing great! We started prime and composite numbers today! Tomorrow we will do prime factorization. They are moving along at a great pace!

5A We are working on division and checking our problem using multiplication  this is not too bad for the students who are good with their multipliation tables.
Homework  textbook page 103 #17, 18, 19, and 20 Divide and check.
5B We are working on division with teen numbers as the divisor  some students are having difficulty with this. Teens are difficult to divide by because they are hard to guess at what number will work. But they are getting it. We will continue with teens tomorrow and then start just any double digit.
Monday 10/22/18
5A  had a test today  no homework
5B  workbook page 32 #1  18 We started this in class today.
This is just a helper lesson  they do not have to memorize these rules  but it is helpful to be familiar with them.
Thursday 10/18/18  It was so funny today! The maintenance today was just multiplication tables or division and the students were so happy that it wasn't rounding!
But I told them  rounding will be coming back! They need to know it!
Thursday 10/18/18
5A  We are learning multiplying with decimals today! Homework workbook page 23 evens
Tomorrow we will review for a test on Monday. The test will be on workbook pages 15  17 and 19  23
5B We are working on division  and learning how to check our work by multiplying.
Homework workbook page 31 #2  12 even  the students need to multiply and check each problem.
5A and 5B Maintenance  last week and this week, the maintenance has been on Rounding. Before each maintenance quiz I review rounding. After each maintenance quiz I review the quiz. Still some are having difficulty with this maintenance topic. So I have been spending class time on it everyday.
Next wednesday you will see the two weeks of rounding maintenance quizzes. You will see that some students had difficulty with it. I offered a worksheet for the students to bring their grade on their maintenance quiz up to an 80. We will continue to work on this. But spending class time on this is pushing my schedule back a little. But I still think it is an important thing to learn and retain, so I am still working on it.

This week for both 5A and 5B our maintenace was rounding. Rounding to tens, rounding to hundreds, rounding to ones. Both groups had a lot of trouble with it. I reviewed it before each maintenance. And I went over the problems after each maintenance. Some students are still having trouble with rounding. So we spent some more time on it again today.
5A We are learning multiplication  patterns with 10's, and multipying by single digits and with zero's  Monday we will start multipying with double digits. We also spent some of the class going over rounding. Homework was to finish workbook page 19  but most students got it done in school  Enjoy the long weekend!
5B We reviewed the test today, then reviewed rounding, then started division. We did not get that far into division  we only did dividing with one divisor. So no homework. Enjoy the long weekend!
