Welcome to my Math Class. In the 5th grade, we work really hard on our math with our math series, Everyday Math. The students spend a large part of most class periods working in small groups on journal pages that teach them to be better thinkers. We play games frequently in class and these games are all tied into the concepts. They are fun too! The kids typically have homework about 4 days a week. The homework is almost always in their Home Links book and should take about 30 minutes at the most to complete.
