Welcome to 5th Grade Homeroom and Middle School Math
www.IXL.com (drill practice)
Grades 5-8 will have access to IXL. Students will periodically be given homework in IXL. The skills the students should be working on will be highlighted. Students should work a minimum of 15 minutes on skill(s). I am able to see how long the students worked and their achievement level. The week leading up to a test the students will be assigned to work on the set of highlighted skills that will be tested. Students may still use IXL at any time in addition to what has been assigned.
Grade 6-8 will be using Problem solving books, notes and emathinstruction as their curriculum. Emathinstruction can be accessed from home. Grade 5 will continue to use envision.
