224 | 5th Grade | Ms. Julie Kolkmeyer, NBCT

Student Council Representative and Alternate
Julian Reiss & Molly Moran
Important Dates:
June 19 - Last Day of School
Issues that need an immediate attention (such as changes to where students should go after school) should be called in to the office to ensure the message is received.  
Absent Work:
When students are absent, it is their responsibility to check the monthly homework calendar.  Additionally, any handouts that the student needs are hanging next to the board. A student should not need to ask me for any work, as it is all provided here. Students have the same number of days absent to complete the absent work. 
SOAR Student of the Month

January - Art Korkuchanskiy
February - Dean Wilkinson
March - Molly Moran
April - Angel Rosales

No-Name Papers:
If your child is sure he/she turned in an assignment and it is labeled as "msg" (missing) in the gradebook, please remind him/her to check and see if it is included on the No-Name board. 

Student Portal and Parent Portal:
Students should regularly check student portal and be aware of their graded work and/or missing assignments. Remember, by clicking on the letter grade, you can see an itemized list of all assignments and grades that have been entered.

Graded Work:
Graded work folders are sent home each Friday. Please remove all papers, read your child's reflection, and sign, notifying me that you have seen and discussed the graded work with your child. Empty folders should come back to school with your child each Monday.

Students will have responsibility for recording all homework accurately when it is given at the end of every period.

Reading and Social Studies information can be found on Ms. McIlvain's webpage.

Late Work:
Late work (homework) is not accepted. Because homework is often reviewed in class with answers given, students who do not have their homework completed will receive a msg (missing) in the grade book. 

Homework is given in math daily (M-F) with the exception of progress report days, report card days, and test days.

 Classifying Plane Figures
Test is Monday, 6/1
Essential Understandings
  • 15-1 – Students will be able to use attributes of polygons IN ORDER TO name them.
  • 15-2 – Students will be able to understand triangles IN ORDER TO classify them based on their side lengths and angles.
  • 15-3 – Students will be able use attributes of quadrilaterals IN ORDER TO classify them based on their side lengths, how the sides are related, and angle measures.
  • 15-4 – Students will be able to use side lengths and angles IN ORDER TO identify quadrilaterals.
  • 15-5 – Students will be able to use attributes of quadrilaterals IN ORDER TO classify them into distinct groups.
  • 15-6 – Students will be able to use the term “generalization” IN ORDER TO make generalizations about polygon groups presented.
Common Core Standards
Measurement and Data
Classify two-dimensional figures into categories based on their properties.

CCSS.Math.Content.5.G.B.3 - Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.

CCSS.Math.Content.5.G.B.4 - Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties.
