This week, our reading lessons have focused on character traits and writing summaries. A Fab 5 Fiction Summary is written for by identifying the following elements: somebody (the character), wanted, but, so, then. Ask your 5th grader for a demonstration!
We have also been working on cursive writing, singular/plural, and proper/common nouns. Spelling/Vocabulary this week included our Greek roots as well as commonly misspelled words.
Next week, students will be reading novels - we need a bit of break from all of the non-fiction reading! Students selected their top choices from three available books; we are looking forward to reading mystery, animal fantasy and humorous fiction!
Reading Logs - I will return reading logs to students on Monday. Please check in with your student on their nightly reading homework and sign their reading log...even if your kiddo as told you it is not necessary. :)
Math 6: Students have been multiplying decimals and are moving along to division with decimals.
Everyone should continue to practice multiples for speed and accuracy in multiplication and division. :)
