Grade 5 News

The fifth graders just finished reading The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobeby C.S. Lewis. They learned about character, setting, and events as well as discovering the deeper meaning of the story. This novel is really a story about our Catholic faith and beliefs. C.S. Lewis wrote the Narnia series in order to teach children about the Bible and their faith. In the book the students witness Aslan, the “Great Lion”, exchanges his life in order to save Edmund. After being put to death, Aslan rises from the dead in order to save Narnia. Aslan is supposed to represent Jesus, who also died to save us from our sins. During this past Lenten season, we used this book to help us remember our faith and teach us how to be better in all that we do. The fifth graders also practiced writing summaries throughout this book about the events that happened in each chapter. Once we return to school, the students will be able to compare the similarities and differences between the book and the movie. They are really looking forward to comparing the two items.

In math, the students have been working on multi-digit multiplication and some basic division. They have been using word problems to help use these skills to solve real world problems involving multiplication and division. They are also looking at how they can solve word problems using a variety of techniques and strategies.

In writing, the students have worked on writing couplet poetry which is two rhyming lines making a poem. They created a google slide with a photo to display their poems. They have also worked on writing a story to go along with a picture. The students had a series of four pictures that they are working on writing stories about. These have been turning out to be some super pieces of writing. Keep up the great work fifth grade!

I look forward to seeing all of you in our Google classroom next week!
