Math: 3(A-D)
Instructor: Mrs. Marino   
Thanks for a great year in math!
Hi Parents.
First of all, thank you for a wonderful year! Thanks for helping with ixl, weekly assignments and standards practice pages. We do not have summer packets like Seaview so here are my recommendations to keep math skills sharp all summer.
  1. ONLINE: Did you know that you have access to ixl all summer and that all work is saved so next year’s math teacher can see it? Have your child work ahead on 6th grade skills and gain some confidence. If a topic is new or challenging you can watch a Khan Academy ( )or ( ) These websites have great online tutorials that students can watch again and again. It becomes a great go-to math resource. Students can also create accounts at Learnzillion and Khan Academy and practice right there.
  1. ON PAPER: Workbooks: I look to for all my books and workbooks. Spectrum makes great work books and you can pick a grade 5 to review or a grade 6 to move ahead. Here are two links to books that are good practice books for students to work independently and answer keys are included.

Have a wonderful summer!
- Mrs. Marino

Chapter 11 Test moved to Monday May 11, 2015
The Chapter 11 Test will be on Monday, May 11. We just need an extra day to review volume, quadrilaterals, prisms, and pyramids. Good ixl skills to practice for the test are as follows:
B23, B24, B25, B1, B4, B7, B9.
Even if your student already has a good score in these skills practice them again because sometimes they have not done them in a while and can use the extra practice to prepare for the test.

5th Grade Math Work for the Week of April 27, 2015
Hi Parents (and students).
This week we will have the End of Year Parcc tests in math on Wednesday and Thursday. Tonight students should spend 30 minutes on practicing any skills that involve the basic 4 operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) with fractions, decimals and whole numbers and also include some work on quadrilaterals and volume. These are the skills I suggest they work on even if they worked on them before: B7, B23, O9, O12, P1, P2, P3, P4, P5, P6, C7. Many of these skills we have already worked on in school or at home but a little refresher always helps build confidence. The P skills are great practice because they mix all the operations into one skill. There will be no homework the rest of the week. Thanks for your support in math!
Parcc Practice Test Online- Use the link to practice for the PARCC
I am extending the extra credit opportunity for the 3rd marking period to Wednesday, April 1st, 2015. See below on this webpage for details on the extra credit.

Mrs. Marino's Period 3 Math Class Quiz tomorrow

5/6 - 1/3=
Also 1 1/2 + 2 1/4=

3rd Period Math Homework Change
Students may skip page 3 of the blue division packet tonight. Students worked on a pink practice test in class today that they should look over to help prepare for the Chapter 5 test tomorrow.
Go Math and Apps!
Did you know there are apps for Go Math and IXL? You can buy them the app store for ipads. Ixl is also available for kindles. We use ipads at home so I'm not sure about other tablets. The apps are cheap ($1.99) and worth every penny when you see your child working on his or her math skills!
