Prairie View's 5th Grade News

Learning Targets

Language Arts- What an exciting week we had last week. All the talk about books got me excited. This week in Language Arts I hope will be just as exciting. We are going to be looking at our Reading Response Rubric and how we write a Reading Response. We will also be learning about characters and setting and how it affects the story. We will learn how importance having a list of seed Ideas for when we are writing. And last we will look at how we should just write about a moment in time. This will help us stay focused on the topic. We will start our spelling test next week, so make sure your child is studying their words. Have a wonderful week.

Math- Our first week together was fantastic. We learned so much about how we will work together respectfully and how we will 'Put our BEST foot forward'. Looking toward the future, we discussed how what we do today directly influences what is possible for us tomorrow. So, this week we will be practicing making specific reachable goals as we study the first Module of our curriculum. We will be comparing the order of fractional decimals to the thousandths place using area models and number lines. It matters that your child is present every day, thank you so much for having them here ready to learn.

Science- It will be a week to remember as we focus on the inquiry process and lab safety. We will conduct many pendulum science experiments, as we learn about variables and the process itself. There is no better way to learn than hands-on. We are creating 5th grade scientists!

September is Cancer Awareness Month


Friday is “Orange Out” Day in September

In August of 2010 Rhonda and Eddie Brown's daughter Chloe was diagnosed with Leukemia for a second time in her 3 1/2 short years of life. Chloe’s older sister, Bailey, wanted to do something to help raise awareness. So she and her friends who ate lunch together decided to wear orange that Friday since that is the color of the Leukemia Ribbon. After that they decided to convince others to do the same the following Friday. Word started spreading and an event was scheduled for the very first official Orange Out.

And that is how a teenager’s vision for helping out her sister the only way she knew how, became a foundation that now touches MANY…with the hopes that it will continue to reach out to others who need love and support.


Let’s “Orange Out” the rest of the Friday’s in September!

The Orange Out Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 and faith based foundation in which the purpose is to help family's going through childhood cancer by providing emotional, spiritual, monetary support as well as support research for a cure to these horrible diseases.

Spelling Test: Tuesday, September 8











Please Bring Headphones/Earbuds/ Pencil Holder

With all the technology we will be using this year, having some headphones/earbuds would be a great convenience for your child. So if you have an old pair laying around the house that you don't mind losing, please send it with your child. They will be able to keep it in their pencil pouch or locker. Also, if you still have your pencil holder from last year, please bring it in.


Parents that are picking up your child tomorrow and/ or any day after. Please make sure you have a green sign with your child's name on it in dark letters. It is for the safety of your child. It also helps the carline to go by faster. I want to thank you ahead of time for your patience, as we anticipate the carline taking longe than normal this first week. If you walk up to pick up your child, you must have a green sign. We realize that many of you know your teacher and they know you, but we will be very strict with this procedure for your child's safety. If you do not have a green sign, be prepared to show your id. Thank you for your understanding!
