Mrs. Hunt's Classroom News

Blythe Elementary 5th grade

What are we learning?

Literacy- We are learning about text structures. We will be watching many videos to figure out different text structures. We will also be reading many different types of structures about one topic to compare why the author chose the structure they did when writing.


Math- We are beginning our decimal unit. We learned yesterday how to write decimals in different forms (standard, expanded, word). We will be moving into how to add, subtract, multiply and divide. One way to practice with decimals at home is with shopping ads. Tell your child they have $10.00 to spend and ask how many things they can buy from the ad.


Science- We have begun a new unit on Forces and Motion. This is a very fun unit where students learn all about how and why things move (or don't move). We will also be learning about Newton's Laws. This is a very fun and hands on unit.


Social Studies- We are still integrating social studies into our reading block. We are still comparing and contrasting time periods.
