5th Graders Test Out New Math Curriculum

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

Fifth grade students and teachers at Morris Elementary have their hands full in December!  Our students have begun their most difficult unit in math, fractions.  As this district looks to adopt a new math curriculum next year, Morris students are getting to try out the top contenders.  Mrs. Boley’s and Mr. Salow’s students are trying the Go Math curriculum from Houghton Mifflin and Mrs. Brown’s and Ms. Anderson’s students are trying the My Math curriculum from McGraw Hill.  Teachers will compare student data and available resources to gather input for the district.  Besides math, students are studying colonial America in social studies, writing persuasive pieces in language arts and as always reading, reading, reading!
