Fifth Grade News

Welcome to the Fifth Grade Cafe

WRITING

This week in writing we strengthened our claim by using evidence to support our reasons. The students then drafted their argument piece.

READING

In reading, we finished our poetry unit and took our assessment. We then began our next informational unit. We reviewed the importance of checking for understanding while we are reading.

MATH

We continued working on partial quotients this week. The students are becoming more confident and fluent with this method.

A PEEK INTO NEXT WEEK

Writing: Next week we will work on our note-taking skills. This will help us as we continue to research and gather evidence for our argument pieces.


Reading: We will continue our new informational unit by identifying main idea and supporting details in order to summarize what we read.


Math: Next week we will take our knowledge of partial quotient and apply it to different problems and situations. The students will not only be able to solve division problems using this method, but also be able to explain in words another student's thought process.
