November 18-November 22
We have a busy week! Looking forward to seeing all of you at conferences either this Thursday, November 21 or on Monday, November 25. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
In reading, we will be finishing up the novel Liberation of Gabriel King this week. We will continue to discuss the theme of courage. In guided reading I am doing individual reading conferences.
In fifth grade math we are continuing to divide two and three digit dividends by two digit divisors with remainders. Students are really doing a great job with their division skills. We will be testing by mid week.
In accelerated math, students are finding the distance and midpoint with ordered pairs between two points on a coordinate plane. They are also writing and graphing inequalities.
In writing, we are going to be starting a Hero prompt writing. This goes along well with our theme of courage. Students will get to choose which person in their life they consider a hero and write a multi-paragraph essay on this individual.
Students are currently working on notes and activities for lessons 1 an 2 in chapter 6.
In word study we are working on prefixes. Students will need to know the definition of the prefixes on their list. Please help your child study this week.
Students will not be in school from Monday, November 25 through Friday, November 29. Students will return to school on Monday, December 2. Enjoy the time off with your children.
November Book Report
The book report for November will be done as a Flipgrid video. It will not be due until Monday, December 2. It is available in Google Classroom for students to start working on if ready.
On Friday we will be watching the movie Holes. We just finished the novel recently so the students are really looking forward to seeing this movie. Holes is a Disney movie. If you do not wish to have your child watch the movie please email me. You may send your child with a fun snack and drink to enjoy during the movie.
