As we are working hard in 5th grade, we've noticed that a few of our school supplies have been dwindling. If you would like to help our house out and donate more supplies, we would greatly appreciate it. Here are the supplies that we are in need of:
- Eraser tops
- Dry erase markers
- Pens (not erasable)
- Loose leaf
- Clorox wipes
- Headphones (if your child doesn't have them yet)
Strategies this week;
Infer- (review) When we make inferences, we combine what we know about the world with clues we are given to think more deeply and see a more complex story unfold.
Construct sensory images- As we engage our senses we consciously focus on our reading to help us build stronger comprehension,
We also began our Fantasy packet so you should be seeing your student working on sections each week.
Please note the testing time and remember to go to bed at 8:00, bring healthy snacks and drinks and eat a healthy breakfast each and everyday! Thanks for your help on this!

This week your child brought home their Unit 6 Test in their Math Take Home folder. Any papers that are in their folder can be left at home. Remember to sign their sheet in their Math Take Home folder.
We finished converting metric units of length, mass, and volume. Next week we will be converting among customary units of length, weight, and volume. This concept can be more difficult for students, but with practice and real world examples, they will grasp these calculations.
MAP Testing takes place next week. Please remind your child of the importance of this assessment. It is crucial that your child gets a good night sleep with a nutritious breakfast and afternoon snack. Please encourage your child to prepare for this by taking time to practice. Here is a link with multiple activities for your child.
The current spelling packet is due next week 5/5.
