Our last marking period of 5th grade starts TODAY!
Here is what is happening in Mrs. O’Donnell’s classroom this week…
In Math… this week we will be finishing up Chapter 12. We will be learning how to find the volume of figures. We will spend this week reviewing and we will take our Chapter 12 Assessment on Friday.
In Social Studies… this week we will be starting our Western Expansion unit. We will learn about the Louisiana Purchase, The Corps of Discovery, and the War of 1812. Can you believe this is our final Social Studies unit for 5th grade!?!
In ELA….this week we will continue our Lesson 21 endangered animal brochures. We will continue with Author’s Purpose and Perspective and choose our topics for our persuasive writing essays. Lesson 22 “The Power of W.O.W” will be introduced this week. This story is a play so we will have fun reading in groups. We will also learn a new set of vocab words.
In Spelling: Same spelling words as last week! Check out my last blog post for the list. Our test will be this Friday. New packets (Lesson 25) will be passed out on Friday as well.
We will have our social lesson with Mr. Schuck on Wednesday.
