I attended the University of Houston and I received my Bachelors degree in 1997. This will be my 21st year in education, 15 of those being in 5th grade.

Respect Means Week

Last week, Humble El enjoyed themed days to celebrate RESPECT MEANS week. We had fun while remembering how important it is to respect ourselves, our peers and the adults around us. The following students received the "Pineapple Award" for being extra respectful around campus: Uriel, Denis, Stasy , Mariana , Jacky, Aliyah, Mayte, Jakob , Nathan , Hailey and Seth.

"Be a pineapple, stand tall, wear a crown & be sweet on the inside."

Math Corner

We have now started using our multiplication facts to improve our division fact fluency. We are continuing to work on mastery of multi-step word problems that end with an equation and a variable. Ask you child how flow-maps can help them organize these situations.


We are also working on representing and solving word problems that require the multiplication of whole numbers and decimals. Students have been introduced to the ratio table, distributive property and the model as another way to solve these type of word problems. All of these strategies can be used in place of the traditional algorithm.


Soon we will also be working on representing and solving word problems that require the division of mixed number by a whole number. (ie. 2.64 divided by 2 or 0.90 divided by 3)

Science Corner

In science, we have been very busy studying energy. Your child should now be an expert on mechanical, thermal, electrical, light and sound energy, Feel free to ask about conductors and insulators for each type and how they travel.


We will be moving on to designing experiments that show the effect that friction has on force.

Reading

Drama/Myths: Our drama/myths unit was a complete success. Students preformed a play in SPANISH for 4th and 3rd grade students.


Expository Texts: We have started analyzing expository texts. We are paying close attention to text features and how they enhance the text, text structures, and author's purpose. With this unit we are also practicing identifying central idea, supporting details, and summary.

Writing

Writing: Our writing will be integrated with Social Studies. We will begin an expository writing about European Explorers and their motives for navigating to the Americas.


Grammar: We are focused on complete sentences, variety of sentences, and collective nouns.

Bringing History Alive: Social Studies
