Math, Science, and Social Studies


This week we will complete our geometry module. We will be classifying quadrilaterals and identify attributes of different polygons. We will start the measurement module next week.

Social Studies- Students began research on their Arkansas project topic on Friday. Students are currently working on answering compelling questions about their topic gathered from their research. We will continue our research this week and begin working on our Google Slides presentations. Our goal is to be finished and ready to start presenting next week.

Reading, Writing, Vocab and Word Study

Word Study--All groups will test this Friday. We will also be doing some spot check assessments over high frequency words that students should know! Next week, we will focus on the correct spellings (and correct cursive) of the months of the year. If you'd like to get a head start, I'll be sending home a cursive practice sheet over the months today! 5th grade teachers expect names and dates to be in cursive starting day one!

Reading & Writing--We are celebrating our reading and writing this year as we reflect back over our work. We will be working on memory books, reading reflections, and writing letters to authors.
