As for 5th grade math, which I will be teaching next year..., you might move into decimals, or perhaps explore measurement, like volume and capacity. Make the activities fun ones, let her discover how many cups there are in a gallon, in a quart, etc. Let her measure the length of items in your house or yard to see which things are certain lengths in cm meters, inches, feet, etc. If she is strong in place value and fractions, then let her explore without worrying about preparing her for next year. Have you tried any software that has algebraic problems on it. The Logical voyage of the Zoombinis ( Broderbund) is a wonderful game, with puzzles that will help your daughter practice logical thinking... and you will enjoy them too. :-) -Gail, for the Teacher2Teacher service
