    One of the most important skills students will need for fifth / sixth  grade math is automatic recall of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts.
    I strongly encourage all students to PRACTICE  for at least 15 minutes nightly. 
    We will be using GO Math and the ENVISION series, this year in fifth / sixth grade. These new materials have been aligned with the new Common Core math standards.  The curriculum materials include differentiated learning centers, hands-on manipulative, and multiple online interactive practice options.
