Math- EOG Review Week #5

We will continue to review all of the standards that were taught this year. Our class time next week will be spent focusing on a specific standard and skill in class, and their homework will be similar.

Continue practicing multiplication facts at home. Fractions are the bulk of the 5th Grade Math EOG and knowing their multiplication facts makes this easier.

English Language Arts (Reading)

Next week we will be reviewing grammar, affixes, and an assortment of the genres for the Reading EOG. We will focus on using test-taking strategies to analyze and answer the questions.

Please make sure your child is still reading a fiction book for enjoyment and jotting nightly. This book should come back and forth from school to home.

Science- EOG Review Week #3

This week we continued reviewing for the Science EOG by revisiting our units on Weather and Force & Motion. Next week, we will be continuing to work on reviewing all units for the Science EOG. Be on the look out for nightly Science homework.

In preparation for the Science EOG, all the vocabulary lists from every unit we have covered this school year have been placed on my Weebly. To practice vocabulary words, I would suggest creating vocabulary flash cards with the word on the front and the definition with examples on the back to promote further understanding. This will definitely help students as they take their Science EOG on Friday, June 3rd.
