Welcome to 5th grade math!
Welcome to 5th grade! My name is Mr. Sears and I am very excited to be at Newfield Elementary teaching 5th grade, especially 5th grade math! We will be using several tools this year to help us learn concepts in different ways and the links to those sites are all to the right.
Zearn is a website that follows the Engage NY modules and offers opportunities for students to interact with math in different ways. It can be accessed at home and all of the user names and passwords will be provided to you if you choose to do so. Khan Academy is a useful site with videos and opportunities to practice the skills that we have learned in class. Engage NY offers accessibility to the lessons we will be working so that you can more fully see what is expected of your students during math. Mathblocks is a useful resource especially when it comes to word problems and fractions, two concepts that students, as well as adults, often struggle with!
We will be using Class Dojo as a way of staying in touch with you, please make sure to sign up for it at your
earliest convenience. The sign in information was sent home and I am more than happy to help with this if need be.
We are also a peanut and tree but free grade level and you should keep this in mind when sending in snacks from home.
