Ms. Pinto’s 5th Grade
Welcome 5th graders and parents. My name is Stephanie Pinto and this will be my fourth year teaching at Ben Gamla. I am the Math, Science and Social Studies fifth grade teacher. It’s going to be a year filled with exciting labs, projects, centers, independent & group activities. I look forward to creating wonderful and meaningful memories throughout the year with all of you!

- Friday 9/22/17 – $1 Jean day
- Hot Pencils – 9/19 – 7 & 8
- Science Quiz Wednesday 9/20/17
Friday, Sept.22 – Chapter 1 TEST
- Recognize that each place value position is: o 10 times greater that the value to its right o 1 10 of the value of the position to its left
- Read and write whole numbers through hundred million.
- Use a basic fact and a pattern to multiply mentally by multiples of 10,100, and 1,000.
- Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers: o five-digit by one-digit o three-digit by two-digit o four-digit by two-digit o five-digit by two-digit
- Use equation, rectangular arrays, and area models to illustrate quotients.
- Write and evaluate repeated factors in exponent form.
- Find whole number quotients of whole numbers using: o strategies based on place value o properties of operations o relationship between multiplication and division.
- Simplify numerical expressions applying order of operation rules (multiply or divide from left to right & add or subtract from left to right).
- Write numerical expressions.
- Evaluate numerical expressions without evaluating them.
- Including expressions that may require multiplication up to 1 fraction with a denominator of 10 or less.
- Interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them.
- Evaluate numerical expressions considering Associate, Commutative, or Distributive Properties, when applicable.
- Use Science Process skills.
- Use five senses to observe qualitative properties of matter.
- Use tools to measure quantitative properties of matter in metric units.
- Compare and contrast the basic properties of solids, liquids, and gases, such as shape, particle movement, volume, mass, color, texture, and temperature.
- Plan and carry out investigations to classify objects based on their observable properties.
- Keep records that describe observations made, carefully distinguishing actual observations from ideas, inferences, and opinions about the observations.
- Communicate these findings.
- Identify and/or explain that science is grounded in verifiable observations that are testable.
- Investigate the concept of weight versus mass of an object. Discuss why mass (not weight) is used to compare properties of solids, liquids and gases
- Label and identify United States and Capitals.
- Use latitude and longitude to identify places.
- Lesson 1.8 Front Page
- “Hot Pencils” 7 & 8 tomorrow.
- Lesson 1.10 & 1.11- Front page only.
- Study Science Vocab – observe, predict, classify, infer, opinion, communicate, evidence, Celsius, Fahrenheit, qualitative observations (using 5 senses), quantitative observations (measurement). Know the tools and definitions to the tools we use to measure: mass, weight, volume, volume of an irregular figure, volume of a rectangular prism (l x W x H), temperature. Know the difference between weight and mass. QUIZ tomorrow.
- Study for Math Test Friday.
- Teacher Planning Day
- Begin thinking of a Science Fair project idea.
- Have a wonderful weekend!

Resources for Math, Science & S.S.:
FactorsandMultiplesPuzzles – After completing the puzzle, write the factors and multiples 1-12 on the blank chart.
Timed Multiplication – Parents, Print the first page only because the second page is an answer sheet. Students: Put one minute on the timer and test to see how many you can do!
