In the Classroom This Week:
We are returning to the Writing and Grammar book and focusing on some fundamentals. This week we will be learning the difference between singular and plural nouns, how to write irregular nouns, and determining possessive nouns.
Students are continuing Unit 7 in their Vocabulary Workbook this week. Students will take a Vocab test on Friday.
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 15th.
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.
· After a class vote, the students have decided they would like to each donate four additional items: a toothbrush, toothpaste, a pair of socks, and a beanie.
Here is how this will work:
The students have been divided into pairs.
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.
Each student will bring in the four items listed above.
On December 1st we have reserved the gym where the two fifth grade classes will gather and assemble the blankets. They will be bundled together with the other donations. So each “Tied with Love” care package will consist of: 1 large blanket, 2 toothbrushes, 2 toothpastes, two pairs of socks, and two beanies.
Friday, December 8, 5T Hot Lunch.
Friday, December 15, Confession Schedule: 5A at 10:00 and 5T at 10:30.
