5th Grade Family's Professor Corner
Miss Anderson's Language Arts Class
This week, students dove into our Bud, Not Buddy novel study. We are continuing our unit on Heritage and it fits right in with our novel study! Our story test on “Our Song” will be early next week, so make sure that students are reviewing at home. Students are welcome to check out a textbook, as long as it is returned the next school day. As always, please make sure your student is reading 20 minutes every day!

This activity reinforces science concepts such as friction, velocity, gravity, potential energy, kinetic energy, and inertia. In Social Studies, we will learn about the seven different Native American cultural regions. STEM fair – this week the students are working on their hypothesis; it will be due at the end of the week.
