Welcome back to school for the 2022-2023 school year!   My name is Valerie Taylor, and I am so excited to be teaching your child fifth grade math! Communication is going to be the key to a successful year for everyone involved. We are going to have a great year!



We will be using the Eureka Math Squared curriculum focusing on place value through thousandths, operations with whole numbers, fractions, and decimals, coordinate planes, volume, and all things fractions this year.  I will be dropping short instructional videos for each lesson in your child's google classroom accounts they may access from home if they need help or review during the year.    



GOOGLE CLASSROOM will be your best friend!  Have your child log in from home  so that you can see what we did each day!  It will also have important dates as well.

Students will be using Google Classroom daily for assignments in math class.   I will be uploading instructional videos, homework assignments, exit tickets, and websites with extra practice if needed.  

You can expect your child to have homework Monday- Thursday night during the week to practice.They will bring their Apply workbook back and forth as where that is where their homework will be.
Homework will be checked for completion the next day.  Your child will start out with a 100 as their homework grade and 5 points will be deducted for every time they do not have their homework completed. 
ZEARN/Get More Math Computer Programs
We will be using 2 computer programs to supplement and help practice skills that are being taught at school.  Your child may access these programs from home for additional practice. 


Zearn can be accessed through the following Clever website:


  • Zearn will be used daily to preview/practice skills we have learned in class. 

  • A certain number of Zearn lessons (usually 3-5) will assigned every Monday for the week and will be due the following Monday morning at 7 am for completion grades. 

  • Each lesson completed will be worth a 10 point completion grade in my gradebook.  

  • Zearn completion grades will be given for each module each week!

Class Dojo app - We will be using this app to share news, updates, important reminders, and photos from class.  You may also send private messages to any of the 3 teachers to see how your child is doing in school or to get in touch with us for anything.  Until the internet issues have been resolved, this will be the best way to contact me as my email is not currently working.  I do ask that any private matter is not posted to the news feed, but sent in a private message. 
Thank you all so much for your support.  Once again, I am so excited to be your child's teacher and am looking forward to a fun, successful year!
