Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Cammarota


Welcome to Grade Five!

Reading and Math  Assessments will be this week

Please remember to review and study your textbook and notes to review skills for these assessments this weekend!




Grade 5 students are learning to solve decimal addition and subtraction problems. Students can find estimates, round numbers using place value and read and write numbers to the thousandth.  Students should practice reading and writing numbers often.  Reviewing multiplication tables and skills should be nightly. Please practice math skill on IXL Math each weekend to build and develop better fluency in math.

Our Science program is introducing the role of a scientist in our world. We completed labs in our class to form an hypothesis, record our observations and use our data to draw conclusions. Our students will continue to use the Scientific Method in class to explain and understand the world around us.  Please review our vocabulary words often and discuss with your children how science is used in our world each day.

Our STEM activities have been fun to create and have given us opportunities to share and explore in the field of science and math.  We have constructed  the longest paper chain, and  buildings from pipe cleaners. Do you know which tower design can hold the most books? Ask STA  STEM student. Is it the square, triangular or circular tower design? We celebrated Halloween by creating a skeleton with 20 Qtips. We continue to explore engineering activities by construction projects using our Lego manipulative. 

 So glad to see all the students everyday eager to learn and share with their classmates. Remember to use our Math and IXL Math sites to help reinforce math skills.  Remember to read each night to build vocabulary, understanding and inference skills.

Above I added important links to help students to reinforce skills taught in class.   

Please check the homework calendar on the left panel for all class assignments and information.
