Mrs. Patriquin's 5th Grade Class

The Week of 5/23-5/27

Whats New????

Yay! 2016 MCAS testing is officially over for all 5th graders! They worked very hard and tried their best. I am proud of their efforts :).


We have a some fun events this week!


  • The Buy One, Get One Book Fair is scheduled for 5/23-5/26
  • Memorial Day Program is at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday 5/25
  • The Spring Concert is Wednesday 5/25 from 6-7. Students need to be there for 5:45.
  • Field Day is Friday 5/27
  • Memorial Day Monday 5/30--No School
  • We will be going on a field trip with the 6th graders to Northampton on Thursday, June 9th to visit the Smith College Museum of Art and the Botanic Gardens. Please be looking for the permission slip that will be going home this week. We would like to get the permission slips back in as soon as possible.
  • A permission slip for the all-school field trip to ARMS to see a play went home last week and is due by this Friday. Please be sure to send in that permission slip if it hasn't already been sent in.
  • Nurse Hall is still looking for some scoliosis permission slips. If you would rather your child's doctor do the screening, the slip still needs to come back indicating that choice. The screening results will still need to be sent in to the school.

We Will Learn...

  • Math: We are finishing up Module 5 this week with lessons 20 & 21. Students will continue to classify quadrilaterals based on their attributes. A summative assessment will be likely on Wednesday. I hope to start Module 6, Problem Solving on the Coordinate Plane, on Thursday. Please check out the videos below.
  • ELA: We are back to having spelling words this week! New words will go home on Monday, but we will test on Thursday due to Field Day on Friday. We are half way through our Interactive Read-Aloud and finished our week last week discussing the themes, character changes, and symbols that we have noticing and tracking. Students will finally be able to begin their book clubs this week now that MCAS testing is over and do the same prep for their book club meetings independently.
  • Science: We wrapped up the experiment part of our plant projects last week and got some really interesting results. This week, students will be thinking about what conclusions they can draw from their results and what new questions that they now have. The will be creating a visual presentation of their information at school. On Friday, we came up with the grading criteria as a class and made the rubric they will use to help them make their posters.
