Mrs. Horejsi's 5th Grade Class Is Getting on the Bus!

Course Description for Math and Science
This year I am teaching just Math and Science to two different classes, my homeroom and Mrs. Gutierrez's homeroom. We switch daily about 11 AM.
Science instruction is divided into three main subject areas and times:
  • Physical Science, first nine-weeks
  • Earth Science, second nine-weeks
  • Life Science, third nine-weeks
The fourth nine-weeks includes a review of the content and the completion of a mandatory Science Fair project.
Math instruction involves six main subject areas:
  • Place value, the four operations, decimals, and fractions
  • Patterns and relationships
  • Geometry
  • Measurement
  • Probability and graphs, charts, and tables
  • Problem Solving

      The State of Texas requires all 5th grade teachers to teach specific standards to the fifth grade population across the state. These standards are assessed at various times throughout the year, as well as at the end of the year with a new state assessment called the STAAR.
