5R Bi-Weekly Newsletter
Written and Edited by Mrs. Riley's 5th Grade Class
We read Cesar Chavez and learned how he fought injustice. We compared and contrasted fiction and non-fiction stories that were centered around injustice. We began a new unit and started reading a story called Real-Life Superheroes. This book has several chapters, each about a different person that did something heroic. In this unit we will focus on determining the main idea and finding key details, analyzing cause and effect, and determining how a text's structure impacts the text.
Some of us are learning about multiplying decimals with whole numbers, while the rest of us are adding and subtracting decimals. Most of the classes will be taking the Chapter 5 Test within the next week, which covers adding and subtracting decimals. We will then begin to learn strategies for multiplying and dividing decimals.
