November 16- November 20

What We're Learning This Week:

Reading:

I will...be able to compare and contrast characters, events, and settings in a text.


Math: I will...be able to interpret data in line graphs. (finish)

I will....be able to interpret fractions as part of a whole. (start)


Science: I will... be able to distinguish between inherited and acquired traits. I will be able to understand how genetics influences the way we look and act.

Updates & Reminders

-Monday will be testing make-ups for anyone who has missed an NC Check-In. There are study links on Google Classroom.


-Tuesday will be an early dismissal day @ 12:30pm. Please let me know of any transportation changes.


-Progress reports will go home Wednesday. They will not be as detailed as the last report card, as we are a little behind on assessing the standards reported due to absences, NC Check ins, and STAR assessments. Last week 2 graded tests were sent home: reading (POV) and science (most recent body systems test).


-Thursday, the 19th, students will have a sub as all 5th grade teachers participate in staff development. I will still be on campus if you need anything.


-Going forward all students will be required to enter a password for zoom calls. The password is sloop2020.
