Your child will be receiving homework in order to prepare them for the upcoming New York State tests in ELA and Math. Since the tests assess the work for the entire 5th grade curriculum, you will notice that your child will be receiving math homework that may not follow the units in sequential order in order to ensure that they are prepared for the test. They will also be receiving spiral homework that reviews all math concepts that they have learned throughout the year.
It is important for your child to complete this homework independently, as they must be prepared to take the test by themselves in April. However, if you would like to review the homework with your child, or help remind them to use the strategies that we are learning in class, I have included some resources below for you to use at home.
