How much is your child reading at home?

Don't forget to STRIDE!!!!

Stride Academy Homework REQUIRED

Starting this week, using Stride 80 minutes a week (20 min 4 times a week) is mandatory. Your child has been challenged. We have put up a football field on the wall. Their football player or cheerleader (they colored themselves) start at one end zone. Their goal is to move across the field to the other end zone. To do this, each week your child must meet their 80 minutes on Stride Academy goal. We will have twelve weeks to complete this challenge, including Spring Break. That means they only have 2 weeks that they can miss their goal. If they “score a touchdown,” meaning they met their 80 minutes goal 10 times, they get to attend a pajama, popcorn party the week of the STAAR test. There will be smaller rewards along the way. Please help them in their success by checking to make sure they are meeting their weekly goals.

NEED 2 Liter EMPTY Bottles

Please send in any 2 liter empty bottles. We are creating eco-columns in the near future and will be needing close to 40.Also, it will really save me a lot of time if you rinse it out and pull off the wrapper. Thank you so much for your help!

Auction Donations..... We are running low, please HELP!

We are doing weekly Friday auctions, where the kids can spend there 5th grade money. We are asking for donations to help sustain our auction materials. Gently used items, old toys, dollar items, fingernail polishes, notepads, games, g-rated movies, craft supplies, etc. are all welcome. Please send donated items to your homeroom teacher. The students work hard to earn their money, and we want to maintain a high incentive for good behavior. The auctions play a significant role in the positive environment we are creating. Thank you for your involvement and support.

#JustReadIt

Just Read It

Learning Targets

Language Arts- This Week in language arts we will be continuing working on our DBQ. We have started working on our journal and will continue to look at different documents about the California Gold Rush. Remember to make sure your child is reading 30 minutes a night. Ask them questions about what they are reading. Have them give you the main idea of what they read. All of this will help when it comes time for STAAR.


Math- We will be learning to multiply and divide unit fractions by whole numbers and other unit fractions. The pace will be quick but it is information they can process through their background knowledge. It is a great time to be a fifth grader!


Science- Adaptation is the key to survival, and this week we will be learning about animal adaptations. Students will complete a research project, learning about all the adaptations of a chosen animal. They will present their project to the class.
