Mr. Hardy's 5th and 6th Grade Math

Greetings all! My name is Shawn Hardy, and I will be your scholar's math teacher this year. This is my very first year at Imagine Andrews Elementary, and I'm very much looking forward to starting the school year. I graduated from Elizabeth City State University, in 2013 Following graduation, I taught three years in North Carolina. I'm very passionate about education and I look forward to working with your child for the 2017-18 school year. :) Feel free to contact me via e-mail at

(9/27/17) Good afternoon parents! I hope all has been well. Since all of our pre-assessments are pretty much concluded, we are now beginning to dive more in depth into our curriculum.

This week in 6th grade, we are still continuing our discussion of integers. This week our focus will be on absolute value. Since this topic is pretty easy, we'll probably be having a quiz on this pretty soon.

This week in 5th grade, we're still in our unit on decimals. I'm illicitly teaching equivalent decimals along with comparisons. But the kids don't know that yet. We have been using our methods and are really beginning to understand why some decimals are greater than others. We're also reviewing our place value as we progress.

Lastly, thanks to all of the parents that are connected to and communicate through ClassDojo.

Hey parents! This week, (10/9/17) We have began to progress through our curriculum a little deeper.

In 5th grade: We'll be working in with using patterns to multiply by powers of ten. Exponents and bases will be our best friends for the next few weeks. :) We'll also be having a quiz this Wednesday, 10/11 on comparing and ordering decimals. and

In 6th grade: We're still in our discussion of rational numbers. In the last few weeks, the 602 and 601 have been learning about how positive and negative integers are represented in real-world situations. Now, our focus is the comparison and ordering of those numbers. We will ultimately use these skills to graph points on the coordinate plane. ALSO, we'll be having an Integer Quiz on Wednesday, (10/11) on: Ordering and comparing integers, Absolute Value, and Graphing integers on a number line....

Hello there Imagine Parents! This week, (10/15) we're going to be spending the majority reviewing what we learned last week. We'll end the week (Thursday), with quizzes to see what we learned. :) I'll also continue to post the vids that we're watching in class...
