5th Grade

Welcome.

We would like to welcome all of you to our grade level web page. We are having an exciting year!  Communication between home and school is vital to the success of the education of your child. We hope to see you during the many events throughout the school year. In addition to attending events, we want to encourage you to contact us with any questions, comments or concerns you might have. We look forward to working with you and your child.

What we are learning the week of April 24 - 28, 2017:

Writing
On Monday, students will write in their journal (realistic free write on the topic of their choice) and share it.  We will be reviewing the Latin roots (PATER, PORT, RUPT, and SCRIB/SCRIBE) for our test, which is this Thursday.  Students will complete and assess their passage-based KPrep practice an on-demand writing on Tuesday and Wednesday.  We are REALLY ramping up for the KPrep On-Demand writing test!  We will summarize/describe what we visually observe on Friday in our journals.  We will also sing our "Shake and Learn" songs to review grammar! :)   We will not complete DGPs or DEUILIs this week. 

REMEMBER:  Students may improve ANY grade at ANY time by seeing me at Bearcat Special time or taking the assignment home and correcting it or adding detail.  There are several students who need to retake spelling tests and DGPs.

Reading:

Students will take their Shiloh quiz on Wednesday. Today and tomorrow we will review for the test.

 

Reading comprehension will be sent home today and due on Friday.

 

If you child is attending Book Fest at NKU on Friday please make sure they turn in their homework before Friday. If your child is attending Book Fest and you want to go as a chaperone please send me an email.


Math:
In Math will have a short quiz over unit conversions on Tuesday, 4/25. Students will be allowed to use calculators AND THEIR NOTEBOOKS on the quiz. There are links for problems/games on my website for extra practice. We will finish out the week working with Volume of rectangular prisms and will spend some time next week reviewing our major concepts throughout the year. 

Science:  

In science, we are continuing our study of ecosystems and focusing on symbiotic relationships in nature. The students began a foldable today (due Wednesday) and will have a quiz over the vocabulary on Thursday. Here’s a link to the quizlet: https://quizlet.com/80582862/ecosystem-2-flash-cards/. Succession and Extinction are not on this quiz, but appear on the quizlet. That’s so we can use the quizlet when we play Quizlet Live. They will not need to know these two words for the quiz.

Social Studies:

In social studies we are focusing on the reviewing previous learned material in preparation for the KPREP and learning about the end of the American Revolution and Westward Expansion.
