January 21-25

Looks like we will be getting some snow this weekend. Everyone be safe! Lots planned for the upcoming week.

In reading, we have started a new read aloud called Woods Runner by Gary Paulsen. We will be reading the story called Everglades from our Harcourt book this week. In guided reading we will be reading about King George and George Washington in a book titled George vs. George.

In fifth grade math we will be reviewing and testing on Module 3. Students have been working hard with finding equivalent fractions and adding/subtracting fractions with like and unlike denominators.

In accelerated math, students will be reviewing, testing and completing a transfer task this week.

In writing, students are going to be starting a research project on an American Revolutionary War Hero. There will be a home component to this project, and a note will be coming home regarding this part.

In social studies, we will be jigsawing chapter 7 and then moving on to chapter 8 to begin reading about the American Revolution and what led to this war.

In spelling, we will be doing List 13: Suffixes (-ine, -age, -ege).

Students will be working hard; as we have lots going on in our class.
