Grade 5 will be making cinnamon and applesauce ornaments on Friday, December 18th from 1:30 – 3:00. We will need about five parent volunteers from each class to help with this activity. If you are available and have your clearances, please send your child's homeroom teacher a note or email to let them know that you would like to help with this activity. Also, please let your child's homeroom teacher know if your child is allergic to the following ingredients: cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, applesauce, or tacky glue. The ornaments smell great, but they aren’t edible! We are also need to borrow cookie cutters and rolling pins. If you are willing to let us use your cookie cutters or rolling pins, please put your name on each item with sharpie so that we can be sure to return everything to the correct owner. This is always a fun activity that the children enjoy!
Math: We will be completing Unit 4 before Christmas. Unit 4 consists of the comparing, ordering, and rounding of decimals, as well as the addition and subtraction of decimals. In addition to that, we will be working with coordinate grids and reviewing the concepts previously learned this year.
Science: In Science, we will be completing our unit in Geology and discovering the meaning of weathering and erosion. Then, we will be researching how weathering and erosion can affect our environment.
