* PLEASE TURN FIELD TRIP PERMISSION SLIPS IN BY WEDS. 5/15! (Read below) *

Recent Happenings

Please try to get the field trip permission slips in by THIS WEDNESDAY, 5/15. (See the explanation sent home with your child). The money is still not needed until May 22, but we really need to get the permission slips in so that we can find out who our parent chaperones will be. This is very important to help us get organized! The Walk-a-Thon is coming up as well - make sure you get your pledges! The fifth-grade musical is fast-approaching - our students are working very hard to prepare for next Thursday!

Science:

We are continuing our Energy unit. This week, students will be continuing to experiment with insulators to see which materials serve as the best insulators.

Reading:

We will be reading chapters 7 & 8 in From The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler this week.

Literacy (Spelling/Grammar/Lit):

We are continuing to practice using adverbs. Our spelling/vocabulary tests will continue for The Mixed-Up Files. Students are doing a nice job studying for these!

WEX:

Students are developing a second character in WEX and writing in detail to show how their characters react in different situations.

Math:

Fifth-grade math will be continuing to work through Unit 11, focusing on volume, capacity, weight, and surface area. The Unit 11 test will be coming up next week.
