5th Grade

What we are doing the week of April 16 - 20,  2018
*Due to the colder weather upon us, students will not be permitted outside
  for physical activity time without a winter jacket and pants.  Hoodies do not
  suffice for a winter coat.  Thank you for your understanding!
* We have a Kleenex shortage.  If you can send some in, we would  
   appreciate it.  

Students will complete their MAPS language mechanics test on Monday and Tuesday.  We will compete our DEUILI warm-ups and complete our DGP (Daily Grammar Practice) activity, which focuses parts of speech, parts of a sentence, and various language mechanics.  We will write a "stand alone" on-demand to help prepare us for KPREP.  No spelling this week!

This week we will be classifying 2 dimensional figures based on their properties. We started a quadrilateral design project on Monday that will be due this Friday April 20.

Social Studies
In social studies we are finishing our American Revolution unit.  We will have a test this Wednesday over both sides of the key terms.  Students should have the study guide in their take home folder.

In science, we are continuing our study of ecosystems. Our next foldable will be due next Tuesday with a quiz over those words on Thursday 4/26. Here is a link to the quizlet: https://quizlet.com/80582862/ecosystem-2-flash-cards/ . As with the last quiz, we will not be doing retakes on this quiz either. Thanks for your help preparing your student.
