This Week...

Thank goodness for a NORMAL week for once!

We will be STAR testing like we do every month, but this is a breeze for the kids.

What We're Learning This Week

Reading: I can determine or clarify the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words and phrases based on grade 5 reading content, choosing flexibly from a range of strategies.

Math: I can compare decimals up to the thousandths place. I can add and subtract decimals to the thousandths place.

Science: I can determine the difference between weather and climate. I can compare daily and seasonal changes in weather conditions (including wind speed and direction, precipitation, and temperature) and patterns. (Our weather unit is a HUGE unit and will necessitate studying outside of school!)

What To Expect:

School starts at 7:50 each day! Now that we are all on this train, we will not have Zoom morning meetings. Your student's Chromebook should be brought back and forth with you to class. Your student will not have any online assignments at home, but will be responsible for completing some throughout the day on their assigned Chromebook. Homework at home will be reading for 30 minutes and completing a reading log. This will start in a few weeks once we get into a routine!

Bring a pair of tennis shoes to keep in your locker for PE!
