5th Grade nEwsLETTER for May
November 15, 2013
Math with Mr. Leipprandt
Science with Mrs. McClintic
In science we are wrapping up our research outlines. Each student was asked to choose an animal they had no knowledge of and research it according to the outline given. We will be using those outlines to write research papers. After they finish their research papers, we will be starting Cells and the Human Body.
Reading with Mrs. Fuhrman
In reading next week, we will be continuing to read The Sign of the Beaver. We are getting pretty close to finishing up the story which ties in nicely with the 5th graders studying Native Americans and Thanksgiving right around the corner. Ask them some questions about the story they are reading in class. Also, they need 8 A/R points for the month of November. Look on Friday’s planner page to find out how many they have so far.
Social Studies with Miss Lange
In 5th grade social studies, we just wrapped up our Native American Unit. We took the test on Wednesday and their grades are written in their planners. We are now getting into exploration of the Eastern Hemisphere. We are covering Europe, Africa, and Asia before the people of the Eastern and Western Hemisphere met. We are discovering the long and difficult voyages that explorers took and how they benefit us today.
