What is my child learning about this month?
Math with Mrs. Hladky
In math we are doing so many things right now. For the last few days we have been focusing on characteristics of a great learner, listener, partner, and problem solver! The 5th graders did a fantastic job solving their first problem last week! Ask your child what consecutive means!
This week we will begin our Stepping Stones curriculum. In our first module, we will be studying decimals and place value up to the thousandths. We will also get started on our math vocabulary book soon. And last but not least, get out your flashcards and study up! We will begin our multiplication quizzes soon.

Language Arts & Social Studies with Mrs. Brittain & Mrs. Harris
In Reading and Writing, students are learning about the habits of a good reader and writer. Students will be reviewing and practicing several reading strategies and skills along with the stages of the writing process.
In Social Studies, students will be learning about the economic and geographic factors that influenced patterns and settlements and what challenges people faced when settling in a new place.
This week, students started their first cycle of vocabulary words. We will be studying 5 words and their synonyms & antonyms each week. Students will be bringing home a copy of their words and definitions on Tuesdays. There will be a vocabulary quiz every Friday. Be on the lookout for a weekly choice menu that students can use to practice their words at home.
