5th Grade Math "Parent Hacks"


  • Are you looking at the homework page? Flip back one page. There, you will find the problems we worked on during class. You will see my purple pen (or Ms. Benchoff's green pen). We star the problems when they are completed correctly. Get out a new piece of paper and rewrite one of the problems we completed in class. Have your child work out the same problems (you have the workbook to use to reference the work!). This will help your child remember what we learned and help build fluency with the procedures.
  • Use Khan Academy or GoMath link to watch the video to match with our lesson.
  • Don't forget to have your child circle any homework problem(s) that were really challenging. We go over homework everyday. I always ask if there are any problems they would like me to go over in more detail.
