Prairie View's 5th Grade News

Learning Targets

Language Arts- Next week in LA we will be working on the writing process. We started on draft on Friday and we will finish our draft this week and revise and edit. When we have finished revising and editing we will publish our paper. We will also look at why an author writes a story and what the purpose of that is. We will also look how the author puts cure word in their writing to move the story along. We are going to have a great week next week.

Math- We have finished our initial overview of decimal fractions. It is interesting to see how the students think algebraically. Tuesday will be our end of unit 1 test along with the pre-test for unit 2. In this study we will be adding and subtracting decimals and looking into strategies for estimating those decimals. It will be a quick unit- only 9 lessons. If your child does not know their math facts with automaticity (memorized), they must be practicing them nightly. It is the single most important mathematical life-skill they must have. EVERYTHING we do EVERYDAY in some way involves those facts. PLEASE, help prepare your child for their future successes.

Science- Hello all! We started off today finishing our Testing Properties of Matter Lab from last week. We played a review game, and took a short quiz to test our knowledge. Tomorrow and Wednesday, we will be completing our first Standards Based Bulletin Board CER. We will be completing personal commentary over how we met the standard and students will be giving feedback to others. We will close the week completing a lab about boiling, freezing, and melting points of water.

Please be aware of and help your child stay in compliance with the following dress code:

We are doing weekly Friday auctions, where the kids can spend there 5th grade money. We are asking for donations to help sustain our auction materials. Gently used items, old toys, dollar items, fingernail polishes, notepads, games, g-rated movies, craft supplies, etc. are all welcome. Please send donated items to your homeroom teacher. The students work hard to earn their money, and we want to maintain a high incentive for good behavior. The auctions play a significant role in the positive environment we are creating. Thank you for your involvement and support.

Calling All Contest Representatives...Let's show'em our PVE stars!

September is Cancer Awareness Month


Friday is “Orange Out” Day in September

In August of 2010 Rhonda and Eddie Brown's daughter Chloe was diagnosed with Leukemia for a second time in her 3 1/2 short years of life. Chloe’s older sister, Bailey, wanted to do something to help raise awareness. So she and her friends who ate lunch together decided to wear orange that Friday since that is the color of the Leukemia Ribbon. After that they decided to convince others to do the same the following Friday. Word started spreading and an event was scheduled for the very first official Orange Out.

And that is how a teenager’s vision for helping out her sister the only way she knew how, became a foundation that now touches MANY…with the hopes that it will continue to reach out to others who need love and support.


Let’s “Orange Out” the rest of the Friday’s in September!

The Orange Out Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 and faith based foundation in which the purpose is to help family's going through childhood cancer by providing emotional, spiritual, monetary support as well as support research for a cure to these horrible diseases.

Spelling Test: Monday, September 28











Please Bring Headphones/Earbuds/ Pencil Holder

With all the technology we will be using this year, having some headphones/earbuds would be a great convenience for your child. So if you have an old pair laying around the house that you don't mind losing, please send it with your child. They will be able to keep it in their pencil pouch or locker. Also, if you still have your pencil holder from last year, please bring it in.


Parents that are picking up your child tomorrow and/ or any day after. Please make sure you have a green sign with your child's name on it in dark letters. It is for the safety of your child. It also helps the carline to go by faster. I want to thank you ahead of time for your patience, as we anticipate the carline taking longe than normal this first week. If you walk up to pick up your child, you must have a green sign. We realize that many of you know your teacher and they know you, but we will be very strict with this procedure for your child's safety. If you do not have a green sign, be prepared to show your id. Thank you for your understanding!
