Hello 5th Grade Families,
As we did our “Gratitude Sharing” this morning, many of your children shared that they were grateful for spending time with their family while enjoying the beautiful weather this past Saturday! It was absolutely gorgeous! Keep reading to find out some of the activities that we will be engaged with, this week, to strengthen our brains!
Reading: Today, we continued to transfer our two-column notes into a five paragraph TDA essay. The children who finished moved on to begin reading and analyzing an expository non-fiction passage about Hurricane Irma wiping out a Florida turtle habitat. There is a comprehension activity that goes along with it, too. Tomorrow, the children who are still working on their TDA essay will try to finish it. Wednesday, we will be working with a poetry activity. Thursday and Friday, we will be rolling into two new comprehension activities centered around Colonial narratives. Keep stretching your brains, 5th graders, and making them STRONGER!!!
Spelling: Your child received her/his spelling homework packet today. He/she knows that the packet is due Thursday and that the test is on Friday. Please continue to help your child to prepare for their test on Friday… Thank you!
Math: This week in math we will finish our last unit of fifth-grade math! Monday we will learn how to calculate the volume of a rectangular prism, but multiplying the length by width by height. Tuesday we will focus on the volume of a composite figure, finding the volume of more than one combined rectangular prism. Wednesday and Thursday we will review everything we have learned in unit 12 with stations, and Friday will be the end of unit test. Make sure to get those study guides done on Thursday night to review for the test. Keep up the hard work in math fifth graders!
Have a wonderful week, and thank you for support!
Mrs. Eby 🙂
