SAS 5th Grade News Sept 27
Where faith and learning grow hand-in-hand.
In the Classroom This Week:
Mass readings went home today. Students are to summarize, reflect, and explain what the reading meant to them. Parents must sign the paper as well in order to receive full credit. This is due Thursday.
In Writing and Grammar students will complete Unit 1 on writing sentences. Then they will start writing their own story as to why their name is a constellation in the sky. This activity correlates with an art project where students graphed their name to make a constellation shape and a science lesson on constellations.
In Science students will be able to identify the characteristics of our solar system and our sun. They will view a slide show showing our sun, they will learn about solar winds, solar flares, sun spots, coronal mass ejections, and more.
Remember to check out the the Fall Book Fair in Room 24 this week while you are on campus for conferences. Teachers will add suggestions on their wish list for classroom library additions, and Petunia's Place donates a portion of the proceeds to our Language Arts fund to help supplement classroom reading materials.
Thank you to all the parents that have attended parent teacher conferences so far. Please continue to make sure you are on time for your scheduled slot since we only have 15 minutes per conference.
4th grade Pet Blessing is this Monday. Only 4th graders are allowed to bring their pets. Students are allowed to bring a picture of their pet(s) to put on the classroom poster board.
