Our class used the Responsive Classroom curriculum approach to create a class set of rules. We also created class names. The fourth graders are the Powerful Pandas, and the fifth graders are the Famous 13.

Our mathematics curriculum for fourth and fifth grade is Eureka Math.  This curriculum focuses on the Common Core standards. Read the article below for parent tips and strategies for each Eureka module.

The Standards for Mathematical Practice are the foundation for our mathematics studies.
