Hello Parents!  
This week is parent conference week.  I sent home a copy of the schedule and emailed it through your email listed on parent connect, in case you need to check your conference time.  I'm looking forward to meeting with each of you.  Please let me know as soon as you can if you need to changes. I have a limited number of openings.
There is no school for students on Friday, 10/27 (parent conferences all day) and Monday 10/30 (staff meetings).
Reading/Language Arts:    
   This week we will begin unit 2 in our collections book.  The theme is animal intelligence and we will explore author's point of view.
The next CR is a "your choice Lit log" which is due Thurs 11/16.  The instructions are under the ELA tab on the left.   The "your choice" book will still need to be a 6th grade level narrative.

Spelling/Word Analysis: 
We will complete lesson 10 this week.  
Each week, students will have two assignments for spelling.  Writing (not typing) each work 5xs and a vocabulary assignment.  Students should also spend time practicing the spelling of the words for mastery before Thursday's quiz.
 
Math:   
We will begin chapter 4, multiplying and dividing fractions.  Some of the focus will be on making models to understand fractions. 
The mathbook is available online through the "clever" site.  Please use the link on the left too.
**We do not allow students to use calculators at this time because we are assessing their mastery of number sense before we move on to 6th grade formulas.

Science/social science/writing: Students will be assigned work from the different 6th grade teachers.  Students are responsible for having their assignments completed and ready to be turned in by due dates. 
Social Studies: video- Mummy book pt 2
