5th Grade Newsletter
Science with Mr. Twa
This month is an exciting time for 5th grade. We will be preparing our Eco-column habitats in preparation for some friends that will use it as a home. During this life science unit, we will be making observations, and learning about inter-dependency by comparing food webs, chains, and energy pyramids. We will also be reviewing and preparing for the benchmark assessment in March.
Reading, Writing, & Social Studies with Mrs. Brittain & Mrs. Harris
Math with Mrs. Hladky
In Math, we have learned to multiply decimal fractions using a number line, partial products, shading in parts of a whole, and the algorithm. Next week, we will be learning about perimeter, area, and volume. We will take our summative assessment over multiplying decimal fractions and perimeter, area, and volume on Friday, February 12th.
The Math STAAR Benchmark will be on February 24th. Please continue to work with your child at home on memorizing their multiplication facts. We are also practicing our own multiplication chart as fast as we can, so let your student show you how fast they can make one at home! Our goal is to finish in less than 10 minutes!
