I am a 5th grade math teacher at a title 1 school and we have little to no support from home and I think this letter would be a great way to involve parents in helping their child at home if they have background information about what they are learning in class. I really enjoy reading this letter and look forward to remixing it . There is full alignment to depth and breadth of alignment to the NC math standards. 5. NBT.7 However, it also serves as information for home school communication. Learning objective not clearly outlined. No assessment strategies have been indicated. Strengths: Great home school communication, keeping parents informed. The letter is aligned with a specific standard for that grade level. Opportunities: This letter could include some basic materials or resources that parents can access away from school.
