Grades 5-7 Mr. Hanson

Welcome Parents and Students! 

 

Parents and Students,

Thank you for another great year!  Please enjoy your summer, get out, explore, make memories, and get dirty.  In each grade level section I have suggestions for your child to do over the summer to keep working on academic skills.  This will help them hopefully retain the skills they learned this year.  At the very bottom is a supply list.

Thanks,

Mr. Hanson

 

CHALLENGE QUESTION:

5th: Math/Science/History:  Times I see 5th grade:  10:33-11:20  (Lunch 11:20-11:55) 11:55-1:26

Math:  Students can work on Khan Academy.  Have them work on skills they felt they didn’t fully master, or needed to work more to understand the skill.  A suggestion I gave the students was to pick a skill, go down to forth grade, work through that skill as a practice to help build confidence and allow for learning scaffolding.  Then go onto the fifth grade level working the same skill.  This will help give practice, as well as build a good base for when the student starts sixth grade.
