Summer is a wonderful time to relax and recharge yourself, however, it is also a time to read and practice all of the skills you learned during the school year. Research shows that if you practice skills, you will better remember and will deepen your understanding. So, I want you to enjoy your summer, but I also want you to practice a little reading, a little grammar, and a little math. Please complete the attached grade level assignments for Reading, Language Arts, and Math. Pace yourself - do a little each day - and remember it is not wise to wait until August to begin your summer work. Reading and Language Arts packets will be the first grade of the new school year.
Math - please go to your current Math teacher's site.
Therefore, this year's 5th Advanced Math class... you are in the right place! Please complete assigned strands on IXL 5th grade (Level G) achieving a mastery of at least an 88%.
For our new friends joining our IHM family, I do not know when you will be added to the IXL class list, but use your IXL information that you already have to complete these strands: Grade 5: Level G
