Ms. Allen's 5th Grade Tbirds

November 1, 2016


We just finished up our lesson on Types of Mixtures. Students should be able to explain what a mixture is and cite some examples. They should also be able to classify mixtures as heterogeneous or homogeneous. Next week we will start our lesson on solutions.


We are just now finishing dividing with decimals. This week we will take our end of module assessment.


We are now listening to the Island series on CD for our read aloud. We have also finished our Personal Narratives and those are coming home in the data binders.


In social studies we have been watching CNN Student News every morning. This is a ten minute clip of current news events geared for students. I believe we need to become informed citizens about current events in our country and other countries in the world. They seem to really like watching the clips and hopefully they have come home talking about some of the things they have seen.

We are also working on our next region in the United States. We are studying the Southwest Region. Our quiz will be on Wednesday. They will have to correctly label a map of the Southwest.


Thank you to all the parents who came and helped at the Halloween Party or brought items in. We truly appreciate it! The games were GREAT!
