This week, students will be finishing Unit 5. Those who still need to show evidence of mastery for the unit will continue to do so and take the quizzes/assessment when they are ready. We will begin Unit 6 on Friday. Unit 6 focuses on geometry and measurement. Students will take the pre-assessment this week, be introduced to the unit on Friday and begin working towards demonstrating mastery of the unit standards.
Tuesday - iReady for 30 minutes (assigned lessons)
Thursday - iReady for 30 minutes (assigned lessons)
4.1 Standards for the Week:
4.NF.5 Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100.2 For example, express 3/10 as 30/100, and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/100.
4.NF.6 Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram.
4.NF.7 Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two decimals refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual model.
4.G.1 Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
4.2-Fifth Grade: Unit 2: Decimal Notation, Rounding, and Adding and Subtracting Decimals
Students took a pre-assessment over the upcoming unit - Decimal Notation, Adding and Subtracting Decimals, and Rounding Decimals. Tomorrow, students will start to receive mini-lessons covering content focusing on decimal notation. For those students who have yet to complete the evidence of mastery for our previous unit, they will need to be working towards mastery of the previous standards before they can move on to this current unit.

4.2 Standards for the Week:
5.NBT.1: Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents ten times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.
5.NBT.3: Read, write, and compare decimals to the thousandths. (a) Read and write decmilas to the thousandths using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. (b) Compare two decimals to the thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place using >, <, and = symbols to record the results of comparisons.
5.1-Unit 5: 2D Figures
This week students are continuing/wrapping up their work on their current unit, Unit 5: 2D Figures. The core of this unit has students analyzing various 2D figures and learning all of their attributes. After students have a strong foundation of the attributes of the various 2D figures, students will then compare and contrast the figures, grouping them into sub categories, and ultimately, creating a hierarchy of all 2 dimensional figures. Students will practice these skills at a variety of practice math stations, and when they feel they have demonstrated mastery of the standards, they will prove it to Mrs. A through an evidence talk!
*Evidence talks have begun, and I am seeing some amazing work being produced to demonstrate mastery!

5.G.3: Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
5.G.4: Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties (polygons, triangles, and quadrilaterals).
