Language Arts

Our Journey's selection this week is called Interrupted Journey, Saving Endangered Sea Turtles. We are focusing on cause and effect, verbs, and questioning to aid comprehension and build vocabulary. On Friday of next week (11/20) we will take our vocabulary, comprehension, and grammar tests for lesson 6.


After the Iowa Assessments have wrapped up, we will continue with paragraph writing. We are focusing on analyzing a prompt and brainstorming before jumping into our writing.

Iowa Assessments

All of our students have done a great job with staying focused on the Iowa Assessments this week! I am so proud of their hard work and dedication during a long two weeks of testing!

In social thinking and PATHS this week, we are focusing on thinking with our eyes. When we are looking at someone or something, we know that we are thinking about them. This video was shown to all fifth graders to model "thinking with your eyes".
