- 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.

Think Through Math
We are beginning a very eventful week, one that will mean a schedule change each day and loss of students at random times. For example, our UIL Ready Writing team was pulled from 9:30 - 11:30 for their competition today AND we gave our Science Benchmark this afternoon. So, we had shortened classes.
However, I attempt to make sure that even shorter classes are meaningful and so, I introduced my classes to Think Through Math. This is a computer program from the state of Texas that is meant to strengthen math skills. We watched the introductory video today and chose our class goals. I also introduced Think 30. This is a goal (30 lessons passed) that I want all of my classes to achieve, so I want them to come up with an idea of a reward that would motivate them to work hard on this site! We will poll choices tomorrow!
