ELA: Building Classroom Communities
Essential Question: What does it mean to be thoughtful?
- Students will understand that reading with comprehension involves the implementation of a range of strategies and thinking beyond the text.
- Students will use a range of crafting techniques to share their message with their readers.
- Students will understand that good behavior of an individual impacts their surrounding community positively.

Writing: Narrative Writing
- Students will begin brainstorming ideas for writing personal narratives by generating seed ideas.
- Students will build writing stamina by choosing a seed idea and writing about it.
- Students will study author's craft techniques in order to raise the level or narrative writing.
- Students will begin to explore the writing process by recognizing and understanding the five steps. (Prewriting, Drafting, Revising, Editing, and Publishing)
Chapter 1: Place Value, Multiplication, and Expressions
- Recognize the 10 to 1 relationship among place-value positions
- Read and write whole numbers through hundred millions
- Write and evaluate repeated factors in exponent form
- Use a basic fact and pattern to multiply mentally
- Multiply by 1- and 2-digit numbers
- Use multiplication to solve division problems
- Use the strategy solve a simpler problem to solve problems
- Write numerical expressions
- Use the order of expressions to evaluate numerical expressions
- Evaluate numerical expressions with parentheses, brackets, and braces
Common Core Learning Standards:
5.NBT.A.1 - Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.
5.NBT.A.2 - Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote powers of 10.
5.NBT.B.5 - Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
5.NBT.B.6 - Find whole-number quotients of whole numbers with up to four-digit dividends and two-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
5.OA.A.1 - Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
5.OA.A.2 - Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, express the calculation “add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2” as 2 × (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 × (18932 + 921) is three times as large as 18932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or product.
