Grade 5

Week of November 19 – 23

Hi Grade 5 Families!

We had a nice and normal week last week! While it was short, we still explored and learned a lot! Looking forward to another regular week, with a Brass Trilogy performance on Tuesday!

Our featured image this week is one of the students’ Base Ten Block creations! We have been exploring Whole Numbers and Place Value and had read a book “How Many Is a Million?”. To explore that, we used Base Ten Blocks to show the value of 1 million! While finding an accurate amount for 1 million is important, play is also an important part of learning, so here we have a “Costco Tuxedo Base Ten Cake” 😄
