# Mrs. Courtney Doran

Welcome to 5th Grade!

I am looking forward to a great year during their last year as an elementary student! This year will be full of exciting learning opportunities preparing students for future academic adventures. I am looking forward to a very positive and rewarding year. Remember that open lines of communication between the parent, student and teacher are key to prompting an educational climate that is conducive to learning. Together we can make a difference!

*Write Decimals** Game*** : **https://kahoot.it/challenge/66db9a7f-2606-4158-835a-fb7ca485c7cb_1585250150878

** Expanded Form Practice: **https://www.mathworksheets4kids.com/place-value/expanded-form/decimals/type2-level1-expanded-1.pdf

Students should be able to read and write decimal numbers to the thousandths place using base-ten numerals, word form, and expanded form. When given one of the number forms, students should be able to write that number in any of the other forms. Use of a place value chart to determine correct values of the digits is important for accurately writing numbers in the given forms.

*Compare Decimal Practice Problems:** *

** Comparing Decimals Game: **https://kahoot.it/challenge/66db9a7f-2606-4158-835a-fb7ca485c7cb_1585250425773

** Practice: **https://www.mathworksheets4kids.com/decimals/ordering/standard1-1.pdf

Students should be able to compare two or more decimal numbers through the thousandths place value. Use of a place value chart to line up the places is a great way to compare two or more numbers. Remember that decimal values can be expressed as fractions (denominators used should be tenths, hundredths, or thousandths). Zeros can also be added to the end of a decimal number to “even out” the number of places to compare. Comparisons can be made using symbols (<, >, or =)

**Multiply**** & Divide Fractions**

** How to videos: **www.supereasymath.com/elementary-menu

** Practice worksheets:** www.commoncoresheets.com

*There are three simple steps used to multiply two fractions:*

- Step 1: Multiply the numerators from each fraction by each other (the numbers on top).
- Step 2: Multiply the denominators of each fraction by each other (the numbers on the bottom).
- Step 3: Simplify or reduce the answer.

*There are four simple steps used to divide two fractions. Dividing fractions is very similar to multiplying fractions. The one change is that you must take the reciprocal (invert the fraction) of the divisor. Continue with the problem just as if you were multiplying.*

- Step 1: Invert the fraction of the divisor.
- Step 2: Multiply the numerators.
- Step 3: Multiply the denominators.
- Step 4: Simplify the answer

**Science**

** Mystery Science:** https://mysteryscience.com/earth/water-cycle-earth-s-systems
