2/25/14 Math.5.NBT.6 Finding whole-number quotients of whole numbers with up to four-digit dividends and two-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

2/11/14 Math.5.NBT.6 Continuing to perform operations with multi-digit whole numbers and with decimals to hundredths (using the Rectangular Area Model of Long Division with 2-Digit Divisors).

1/23/14 Math.5.NBT.6 Perform operations with multi-digit whole numbers and with decimals to hundredths (with long division).

1/8/14 Math.5.OA.1 Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.

12/12/13 Literacy.RL.5.2 Determine a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text, including how characters in a story or drama respond to challenges or how the speaker in a poem reflects upon a topic; summarize the text.

11/25/13 Math.CC.5.NBT.5 Performing operations with multi-digit whole numbers and with decimals to hundredths (with multiplication).

11/20/13 Literacy.CCRA.W.8 Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, assess the credibility and accuracy of each source, and integrate the information while avoiding plagiarism.

11/12/13 Math.5.OA.2 Writing simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them.

11/4/13 Literacy.RL.5.4 Determining the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative language such as metaphors and similes.

10/30/13 Math.5.NBT.6 Performing operations with multi-digit whole numbers and with decimals to hundredths.

10/24/13 Literacy.CCRA.W.3 We've written narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, well-chosen details, and well-structured event sequences.

10/21/13 Literacy W.5.3b Using narrative techniques, such as dialogue and description to develop main events or show the responses of characters to situations.

10/17/13 Literacy.L.5.5a We've been interpreting figurative language, including similes and metaphors, in context.

10/16/13 Math.5.NBT.7 Using the properties of operations with multiplication.

10/8/13 Math.5.NBT.4 - Use place value understanding to round decimals to any place.

10/3/13 Math.5.NBT.3b - Compare two decimals to thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place, using symbols to record the results of the comparisons.

10/2/13 Understanding the Place Value system: Math.5.NBT.1 - Recognizing that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 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.

10/1/13 We're finding common themes across genres by pairing texts (non-fiction article and fable).

9/23/13 We have worked on the Common Core standard Literacy.RL.5.4 We determined the meaning of words and phrases, including figurative language such as similes, metaphors and personification by using our class novel
