5th Grade Math Parent Study Guides
All parents want to help their children be successful but sometimes they need a little help too, especially when it comes to math. These 5th Grade Math Parent Study Guides empower parents to help their children complete homework and study for tests.
Fifth-grade math is challenging! For years, parents would constantly tell me, “The way they teach math now is different than the way I learned it.” So, I began making these 5th Grade Math Parent Study Guides to show parents the way I was teaching concepts in class and to provide step-by-step instructions for difficult concepts such as long division and fractions. I constantly have parents tell me “thank you” for sending these home and how helpful they find them. Parents have said these study guides help them make sure their children are completing their math homework correctly and ensure that their children are studying for tests.
