Going for the Gold!

Welcome To Mrs. Frank's Classroom

I am just thrilled to be your 5th grade math teacher this year! Please take a moment to explore our classroom website. I am so excited to learn and grow together this year. Love, Mrs. Frank

How can I help my child at home?
The number one thing you can do at home is encourage fluency of math facts.  Help your child memorize their multiplication facts (or refresh their memory of them!) at least once per week.  Ask them facts in the car, while waiting in line, or while cooking dinner. If they are having trouble with a few facts, zero in on these by placing sticky notes of the fact on the bathroom mirror, on the refrigerator, or on the bedroom door.  Having a solid foundation of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division will help them tremendously in 5th grade.  I can't stress this enough!  

What about homework?
Please do NOT tear out pages from the workbook unless otherwise instructed.  The workbook page will directly correlate with that day's lesson.  Your child will have had lots of practice with the skill he or she is being asked to do for homework.  If your child needs additional help, there are many resources available through the enVisionmath2.0 website that are fantastic (like videos showing how to do the problem). Finally, if your child is truly struggling, please just have him or her stop and write me a little note. The last thing we want is for everyone to be miserable!  I will make sure to review the skill or concept individually with your child the next day in class.  If you are ever unsure of what has been assigned for homework please reach out. Homework assignments are posted daily. (Please see homework link for Homework)
