- Welcome to my math blog! The purpose of this blog is to help you stay informed about our learning and experiences that have taken place during our math class. I have also included links your child (and you) may want to use in order to supplement math learning in 5th grade.

Well, we were supposed to take our Decimals test today, but we ran into a problem. Since the district was short subs, there was no one available in Content Mastery to read aloud tests to students who have this as a 504 accommodation. So, we went to our handy-dandy "text to speech" app that had worked beautifully previously.... notice the word HAD. Nowhere, and I mean nowhere, did the app tell me that after 30 days we would need to PAY for those services. Needless to say, I am not interested in paying $100 (per student) for an app we will only use a few times a six weeks. So... no math test today. We will take the math test on Monday.
Instead, we spent our time working on our Bill of Rights PowToon presentation that is due Tuesday. This means that we WILL NOT be using any additional class time to complete presentations before Tuesday. Students may work on this at home, come between 7:00 - 7:45 on Monday and Tuesday, and stay in at recess Monday to finish up.
