I would like to take this time to welcome you and your child to fifth grade. My name is Mrs. Shannon Cohen. I look forward to working with you to ensure that your child receives a quality educational experience. This is my fifth year at Bayvale Elementary. I started my teaching career in North Augusta, South Carolina. Education is a passion of mine. I love children and I love to teach. Nevertheless, I have come to realize that I cannot teach my students successfully without the support and assistance of you [the parents]. I look forward to working hand in hand with you all!Mrs. Shannon Cohen, M.Ed.
In Grade 5, instructional time will focus on three critical areas: (1) developing fluency with addition and subtraction of fractions, and developing understanding of the multiplication of fractions and of division of fractions in limited cases (unit fractions divided by whole numbers and whole numbers divided by unit fractions); (2) extending division to 2-digit divisors, integrating decimal fractions into the place value system and developing understanding of operations with decimals to hundredths, and developing fluency with whole number and decimal operations; and (3) developing understanding of volume.
