NCE 5th Grade Newsletter
December 11, 2015
Our next order won't go out until January, but you can log in at any time to place an order for future dekivery.
Reading Round Up
One are in which we all could use a little improvement (myself included!) is making time to read every day. Please encourage your student to choose a novel, read a magazine, or help you with the directions for a project.
We completed our assessment over myths and drama on Tuesday. Students scoring below 70% are working on test corrections. When we come back from break, we will move on to expository text.
Next week the students will write a creative fictional story. We will read Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin. After, the students will brainstorm snowflake story ideas. The students will write about a day in the life of a snowflake. They will need to think about where they would like their snowflake to be. It could be on a sled, on a snowman, on a frozen lake, etc. This will be a fun quick write!

Math in a Minute
Mathletics is a great website for math tutorials and extra practice. Students should have their username and password glued into the front of their math notebook.

The Forces and Motion Experiment Assignment will be due on Friday, December 4th. Have a great weekend!
