ENGAGE IN LEARNING

5th GRADE

Reading | Math

 

 

READING (30 MINUTES)

Use the following activities to engage your child in learning. Find a quiet place and set up a daily schedule for learning. Have as much fun as possible.

  • Read a text from the Wonders literature book or any other fiction text (if you do not have one available, watch a television show). Then, write to a friend telling them what it was about.
  • Pick a character you read about and select four adjectives that describe the character and how each adjective applies. Fold a paper to make four squares and in each square include text evidence for each adjective you chose.
  • Use a story you read about or know about and write a different ending. You can include dialogue to make the characters come to life, or you can draw a comic strip to show the new ending.
  • Keep a journal or diary of all the text read or heard and include a brief summary of the text, personal connections made, or connections made to other texts. Draw an illustration to support your entry.
  • Think about a lesson you learned from a show, a movie, or book you have read. Write about what lesson you learned, how it affected the character, how it affects you and justify your response with evidence from the text.
  • Use a journal, old notebook, or anything else you can use to write on. Explore your backyard or an indoor room and write what you observe using as many sensory details that you can include.
  • Think about something you enjoy at home such as a game, a snack, or a television show. Create an advertisement for this product to convince others to use it as well.
  • Write a biography of a character, a person, or a family member who you find interesting or unique. Afterwards, you can make a timeline to show important events.
  • Write a letter to yourself reflecting on special memories you have had since kinder. Share it with a parent, a teacher, or someone special to you.
  • Think about the community members around you working. Act as a journalist collecting information about one or two specific jobs. You can even use an online site like Newsela to explore specific job duties and other important information about this career/job.

MATH (15 – 30 MINUTES)

STRENGTHENING COMPUTATIONAL FLUENCY

  • Add and subtract whole numbers to the hundred thousands place and decimals to the thousandths place.
  • Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators.
  • Multiply a whole number by a decimal number to the tenths place no more than three-digits by two digits. Examples: 25 x 1.2, 123 x 0.5, or 231 x 1.5
  • Multiply two decimal numbers to the tenths place no more than three digits by two digits. Examples: 0.7 x 0.6, 1.3 x 2.5, and 12.3 x 1.4
  • Multiply a whole number by a fraction.
  • Divide up to a four-digit dividend with decimals to the hundredths place by a one- or twodigit whole number divisor. Examples 12.35 ÷ 5 and 6.75 ÷ 15

Note: Focus on one computation per day solving 5 different problems or solve one of each operation daily.

MATH APPLICATIONS AT HOME

  • Create a plan to complete your daily chores and home-school activities. Include the amount of minutes you will spend on each activity.
  • Find ways to help your parents balance their budget. Make a list of ways to save money and increase income.
  • Use receipts to find the total amount of money spent by your household on a weekly basis.

SCIENCE CONNECTION TO MATH - MEASUREMENT AND PROPERTIES OF MATTER

  • Find 8 objects around your house to measure the length using a ruler. Create a table to write down the object and the length in centimeters.
  • Use IXL to practice measurement. https://tinyurl.com/vzvdf2g
  • Find 6 objects (pennies, salt, fruit, lemonade, etc.) and describe their properties (density, solubility, state of matter, texture, etc.) Make a table to list all the object’s properties.
  • Use IXL to compare properties of matter. https://tinyurl.com/qwq9e4f
