5th Grade Literacy Update-3rd Block

March 17, 2015

Social Studies-Multicultural Education

5th graders are taking part in a school-wide Multicultural Fair for students. We were assigned Australia and Antarctica. So, this week during class, we are going to research and create some 3D objects that tell us about these two continents/countries. Be sure to ask your child what they are working on and what they have learned!

Reading & Jotting

  • Please check that this is happening
    • continue reading 40+ pages per night and jotting
    • keep up with Book Club assignments (determined by group)

    • log ALL reading on www.biblionasium.com

    I have been working this week to get students who have missing assignments caught up. Anything in PowerSchool with a 0% can be made up anytime before the end of the quarter. The 0% is put there because it seems to stand out more to parents than an empty space. If you have any questions, please email me.


    • taking notes on Australia, Antarctica, & Tasmania
    • writing a summary, using their notes, of things learned about the different countries
    • creating a project that is representative of one of those places (there are different projects)
    • please send in recyclable materials for the project
