We are back into the swing of things in fifth grade.  We have been researching an invention in Writing. This connects writing with social studies and the Industrial Revolution.  Students will be completing a poster marketing the invention that they have researched.  In math we are learning how to multiply and divide decimals. 
   We are reading Old Yeller.  Your child will have a chapter or two to read each night and some comprehension questions.  

Reminder:  No School on Jan. 13th and 16th.  
                    Then end of the quarter is next Thurs. -On the 11th.

I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving.
Reminder:  We will dismiss at 1:15 on Wed. November 23rd.  There is no school on the 24th or 25th.

Books for Pop into Reading are due on the 30th. 

Math Quiz on Monday.  Your child should study Lesson 5 pages  in order to be ready for the quiz, especially pages 40 & 41 in their instruction workbook.  
We have been summarizing informational text in reading and working on finding main ideas and details.  
In Science, we are learning 8 scientific practices that all scientists use and have been using them in our investigations.  
In Writing, we have been learning how to write a lot about a little.  Tomorrow, we are having a little contest to choose the top three paragraphs that show the reader what is happening,  by using descriptive language, similes, and our five senses.  I think it will be a lot of fun.  Students have to read and decide on the top three  paragraphs.

  Thanks to everyone who attended our plays today.  The kids did a great job! Thanks for helping them get their costumes and props ready.  Everything went very smoothly.

Fire Safety

We had a great day learning about fire safety yesterday.  The kids had a chance to go into the smokehouse and practice climbing out.  They also practiced stop, drop, and roll.  Firemen reviewed home fire safety procedures.  They also gave everyone cool bracelets to wear!  It was a very fun and educational event.  

Thank you for reviewing your home fire escape plan with your child this week.  We had a good discussion about different scenarios and what we would do.  

Thanks to everyone who signed up to help in our school store this year.  I will be sending home a tentative schedule this week for you to preview.
