Toy Drive for MLK
In the Classroom This Week:
In Writing and Grammar, students will begin Unit 3. They will be able to identify the action verb in the predicate of a sentence. They will also be able to identify the direct object that receives the action of the verb.
Students took the Chapter 7 Spelling test yesterday. Remember students who receive 100% on the pretest do not need to take the test on Friday as long as they turn it in. Students will take a Spelling Test on Friday.
Please make sure students are reviewing their daily notes in their composition book. This will help them prepare for the Friday Review Quizzes.
In Science, students will be able to identify what happens during chemical bonding. They will be able to describe the difference between metallic and ionic bonding. The Science Unit 3 Assessment will take place on Thursday, December 13th.
Tied with Love
“Tied with Love”
Fifth grade has decided they would like to create a care package titled “Tied with Love” to deliver to Catholic Charities by December 11th.
Here is what they have come up with:
· They would like to make fleece tie blankets. Two color coordinated pieces of fleece, each 3 ½ yards will be needed.
Here is how this will work:
The students will choose their partners. They can choose someone from the other class.
Either one person from the pair will donate the fleece, or many pairs of students want to split the donation of the fleece. I am letting them work this out amongst themselves.
On November 30th and December 7th we have reserved the gym where the two fifth grade classes will gather and assemble the blankets.
