In Math today we looked at a very difficult topic, estimation of decimal quotients using compatible numbers. I encouraged every student to do their best on the homework. I can understand if there's difficulty with the lesson, as the class was just introduced to the ideas today. Have your 5th grader do the best they can, and call it a night. Homework is in the Practice Book, Lesson 5.3, both sides, for both classes.
We have a vocabulary quiz in Science on Friday. There's a link in the entry below this one (December 17) to a Quizlet to help with the studying . The students also received a study sheet in class.
