Mrs. Rosenberger's Fifth Grade
January 8, 2016
What's going on?
There were some pretty tired kiddos in this room on Monday! I hope you had a wonderful break with the people you love.
The theme of our reading lessons for this week is "Investigating Nature". We have been practicing skills such as sequencing and Greek/Latin Suffixes. The test will be on Tuesday, January 12.
In grammar, we are working on creating compound sentences. They have been practicing making and identifying these sentences as a class, and we will do more practice next week. Ask them about "building a bridge" or what C & C are in a compound sentence.
Book Blogs will be assigned next week, so finish up your current book by then.
This week we finished the science stations. The students worked in groups of 3 or 4 and traveled around the room completing various activities such as creating sand dunes, vocabulary, and writing an acrostic poem. The packet was finished and turned in on Thursday. There will be a quiz on erosion and weathering on Wednesday, January 13. After that we will begin reviewing for a final test on everything from chapter 9. This includes the layers of the earth, volcanoes and earthquakes, as well as weathering and erosion.
The kids had a meeting with Mrs. Sauer concerning the cafeteria. The rules concerning where they sit and when they are permitted to leave their seats to dump their trays have been changed in an attempt to reduce inappropriate behavior.
