Fifth Grade At Home Learning

Week of April 27 - May 1, 2020

Religion

We will continue with our study of the Parts of the Mass. This week we will focus on the responses we say or do during the Mass. Use the sheet that was attached to my email to write what the response is. (I also included a sheet listing the ways you might respond. See how many you can answer before you look at it.)


Take Mass Responses Quiz on Edmodo.

Reading

Continue reading the articles on www.readworks.org. Make sure you are giving text evidence when asked! Aim for a score of 80% or above!


I have also made some recommendations for skills to practice on IXL. After you log in, on the right hand side, it will say "Recommended by your teacher". The skills I recommended are ones we would have done in Wonders at school. (There are also math skills listed there.)


Don't forget to read your 20 minutes each day. Share what you read on Edmodo. You get better at reading by reading!!!!


Listen to the chapters from The War I Finally Won and answer the question about the chapter of the day.

Language

Do SPELLING unit 32.


Answer the question of the day on Edmodo WRITING with complete sentences and proper mechanics. Quite a few of you seem to have forgotten what a complete sentence is and are just writing a short answer. If you have forgotten how, watch this short video: How to Write a Complete Sentence or check the picture below!


Do 5 Minute GRAMMAR on Edmodo.

Math

Do the math review posted on Edmodo each day and take the quiz on Friday. When I post the answers for Monday's review, I will also post explanations of how to work the problems. They are the same type of problem for the whole week.


Continue to practice your math skills on www.ixl.com. I have also made some recommendations of skills to practice. After you log in, on the right hand side, it will say "Recommended by your teacher". The skills I recommended are ones we would have done in Go Math at school. If you miss a problem, make sure to read the explanation on why it was wrong. (There are also reading skills listed there.)

Technology

Guidance

Check out the letter from Ms. Heinrichs and the scavenger hunt sheets attached to the email I sent this week.

Memory Books

As we talked about at our Zoom class meeting, if you want to save your memory book pages and bring them to school when you pick up your belongings, that would be fine. You may also scan them and send them in an email. I have received an autobiography that way, and that works fine.

Also, I can also send you the memory book pages in a separate email if you have difficulty printing them off of Edmodo.

So far we have had two memory book pages on A day and B day. There will be eight total memory book pages for you to complete during the ABC Countdown.

ABC Countdown

The ABC Countdown will continue this week with the letters D, E, F, G, and H. Thanks to those who have participated. I especially loved seeing your crazy hair on C day!!
Do what you can and as always, if you have any questions or need help with anything, please do not hesitate to email me!! I'm here for YOU!!

Miss you all!
