Week of December 5th…

Hello, Everyone!

Welcome to the month of December! I hope that you and yours had a nice weekend. Keep reading to get a sneak peek at what we’re doing this week in 5th grade.

Curriculum News:

Reading with Mrs. Eby:  Our fifth graders have really been staying in a growth mindset, stretching their brains and making them stronger!  This week, our fifth-grade readers/writers are wrapping up the second unit on interpreting nonfiction texts, text structures, and identifying nonfiction text features.  We will then move into unit three which will cover finding the main idea of a passage along with its key, supporting details, and summarizing.  Way to go… YOU FOLKS ROCK!!!

Spelling: Your child received her/his spelling homework packet today. He/she is aware that the packet is due Thursday morning, and our test is on Friday.

Math with Miss Miller: Fifth graders have been hard at work during our sixth unit: multiplying and dividing decimals. Last week, we focused on multiplying decimals. We also started a new project – ask your child to hear about the menu they are creating! This week, we will focus on dividing decimals. This unit can be challenging, and because of this, fifth graders will have a few review problems for homework on Monday and Wednesday nights. I am so proud of everyone’s impressive effort and perseverance through this unit! 

Thank you for your support, and I hope that your week ahead is wonderful!

Kindest Regards,

Mrs. Eby 🙂
