Mrs. Lynch's Class
Tell me I forget. Teach me I remember. Involve me I learn.
Dear Parents and Caregivers:
As we said goodbye to October with fun Halloween activities and a classroom party, we say hello to November with snow. With that being said it is time for your child to come to school with proper outside clothing. We will go outside at least once a day and with Jack Frost trying to bring on winter early I want everyone to be warm and safe. Please make sure your child brings a hat, gloves, coat, boots, and snow pants everyday. If its earlier to bring a extra pair of items so your child can keep them here at school that is fine too. If you need any assistance in providing your child with any of these items please don't hesitate to contact me.
The end of the trimester will soon be upon us. Please ask your child if they have any missing assignments that they need to finish, or if they want to retake any tests they weren't happy with. I allow make ups and all your child needs to do is ask.
5th Grade: Please remember that your child should be reading 20 minutes a night and filling out their reading log. The logs must be checked and signed by you. Each log is to be turned in on Monday.
** We are on Week 10 of the reading logs. I have some that have failed to turn any in yet. Parents this is where I need you. Please check to make sure your child is reading their required 20 minutes a night and filling out the log. It needs you signature on it before they turn it in everyone Monday.
WHAT WE DID THIS WEEK:
Math: We have been working hard within Chapter 3. In fact your child has a Math test on Tuesday November 12th. Here is what each grade has been learning
4th: We have been learning new strategies to help us multiply two digit numbers.
5th: We have been learning how to read, write, and represent decimals. We have also been adding and subtracting decimals.
Reading: During readers workshop we stepped into characters shoes to understand what they are going through. Your child created a power-point about how they empathized with their character from two stories that we are reading in class. These were excellent!
- Fifth graders: Parents you will notice your child has brought home a new reading log sheet. Your child should be reading 20 minutes a night and filling out the log. Your signature is needed in order for your child to get credit for reading.
Writing: Your child has worked really hard to draft their first story in class. We will be taking this week to revise and edit our stories. I will be conferencing with each child to look over what they are working on and give some feedback before they begin creating their published copy.
Science: This week in science we have headed into Space. Our Earths system unit starts with the understanding of stars and we have had some fun creating constellations. We will be looking at moon phases this week.
Social Studies: This week we began our Economics unit project. You should have received a letter in your child's Friday Folder this weekend. Please look it over so you know what is required of you at home. This is a big project and is worth 100 pts.
