• 30 minutes of reading every night (school expectation)
• Incomplete/missing class work to be completed at home

# Math Power Standards

By the end of fifth grade, these are the math standards that we feel your child needs to have mastered before 6th grade.

#### Operations and Algebraic Thinking

• Write and interpret numerical expressions.
• Analyzing mathmetical patterns and relationships.

#### Number and Operations in Base Ten

• Understanding the place-value system to include decimals and calculating with decimals to the hundredths place.
• Multiplying whole numbers quickly and accurately, for example 1,638 × 753. Dividing whole numbers, such as 6,971÷ 63.
• Perform operations with multi-digit whole numbers and with decimals to hundredths.

#### Number and Operations-Fractions

• Adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators (e.g., 21 ⁄4 – 11 ⁄3), and solving word problems.
• Use equivalent fractions as a strategy to add and subtract fractions.
• Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions.

#### Measurement and Data

• Multiplying fractions, dividing fractions and solving related word problems (e.g., finding the area of a rectangle with fractional side lengths; determining how many 1 ⁄3-cup servings are in 2 cups of raisins; determining the size of a share if 9 people share a 50-pound sack of rice equally or if 3 people share 1 ⁄2 pound of chocolate equally) Convert like measurement units within a given measurement system.
• Represent and interpret data.
• Geometric measurement: Understanding the concept of volume and solving word problems that involve volume.

#### Geometry

• Graphing points in the coordinate plane (two dimensions) to solve problems real-world mathematical problems.
• Analyzing mathematical patterns and relationships.
• Classify two-dimensional figures into categories based on their properties.

#### Foundation Skills, Literature, Informational Texts & Writing:

• Summarizing key details of stories, dramas, poems, and nonfiction materials, including their themes and main ideas.

• Identifying and judging evidence that supports ideas in an author’s argument to change a reader’s point of view.

• Integrating information from several print and digital sources to answer questions and solve problems. • Writing opinions that offer reasoned arguments and provide facts and examples that are logically grouped to support the writer’s point of view.

• Writing stories, real or imaginary, that unfold naturally and developing the plot with dialogue, description, and effective pacing of the action.

• Coming to classroom discussions prepared, then engaging fully and thoughtfully with others (e.g., contributing accurate, relevant information; elaborating on the remarks of others; synthesizing ideas)

• Reporting on a topic or presenting an opinion with his or her own words, a logical sequence of ideas, sufficient facts and details, and formal English when appropriate

• Expanding, combining, and reducing sentences to improve meaning, interest, and style of writing.

• Building knowledge of academic words with an emphasis on those that signal a contrast in ideas or logical relationships, such as on the other hand, similarly, and therefore.

• Producing writing on the computer
