This Week in Room 120
Week of May 13, 2013
We are still working on the published pieces! There are so many activities to work around as the end of the year draws closer. We will certainly have them done this week!!
Word solvers notice and reflect on Latin roots within words to aid in the spelling of a word and to decipher its meaning.
Roots we are studying:
-cred which means to believe
We will also be continuing to analyze the poem "The New Colossus" by Emma Lazarus. We were very impressed with the students and their thinking about this poem last week!

The 8:00 group will be finishing up their study of multiplication and division with fractions this week.
This week the 9:00 math group will be continuing to learn about the multiplication of fractions and will begin to divide fractions.
Each 5th grade student received a new "punch card" today. There are only 5 punches on this card. Punches will be given when disrespectful behavior is shown. Students must have at least 1 punch left to be able to attend the Lunda Park pool day on June 6th.
Students should be reading each night for a minimum of 20 minutes!
