Welcome to Ms. Porter’s 5th Grade A.L.L. Class

I am so excited to begin this new school year with all of you! There are a few things I would like you to start working on before the school year begins:

  1. Make sure that you have your multiplication facts memorized. You should be able to say them as quickly as you spell your name. This skill is SO important for the rest of the math we will be doing this year.

  2. Start memorizing the 50 states and capitals, as well as the location of each state on a map. There will be a quiz on this the end of the 2nd week of school. Here is an online quiz that is fun to practice with: https://online.seterra.com/en/vgp/3063

  3. If you can, please make a short google slideshow introducing yourself. Please no more than 5 slides. Be sure to include your name and any fun facts about yourself. You may also include things you did this summer, places you traveled to, books you read, etc. More pictures than words please!
