June 6- 10
This week in 5A and 5B
Our schedule will be a little different for the remainder of the year due to all the activities and events taking place on campus.
This week will be our last spelling word week and it will stretch over this week and next week. There will be a pre-test on Tuesday and the test will be next Wednesday 6/8. There will be 2 stories this week and vocabulary words, but no skills test.
5A will be reading some autobiographies and working on writing a chapter of our own autobiography. We will also be reading a non-fiction story on Grizzly Bears.
In Science this week, we will wrap up our study of the Solar System by looking at how to survive in space and on the moon as well as creating postcards about our planet.
**A huge THANK YOU to all who came to our STEAM night. The children were so excited to show off all their hard work. We truly appreciated all the support.
In Social Studies, both classes will be continuing Unit 3, The American Revolution. Both classes will be covering the time period after 1776. Both classes will be working on a text book scavenger hunt, which will be done in class.
Ms. DeSocio's math class will be finishing Chapter 9, Multiplication and Division of Decimals, and will be moving on to Geometry, which is chapter 10. We will be having nightly homework assignments to support the lessons taught in class.
Mrs. Donovan's math class will work on review of all the skills we have learned this year in order to prepare for our end of the year test. This will not count toward their final average, but will help me to see what they have learned and what they have retained throughout the year.
Mrs. Paolero's math class will focus on algebra, integers, and functions these last few weeks of school. We must isolate the variable! The end of the year schedule can change but so far it looks like the first take-home quiz will be due Wednesday, June 1st. another will be due Friday, June 3rd, and the Chapter 14 test will be Wednesday, June 8th. All 5th graders will take a placement test covering chapters 1-10 June 9th or 10th. ;-) It has been a joy to share my love of math with your children this year, and to explore coding together, too!
In Religion, both classes will be focusing on one of the 6 virtues of the FCJ charism. We have also been working on our Steps to Respect program that focuses on bullying prevention and conflict resolution.
5B will spend some time this week learning about Mary. May is the month of Mary so we will be reading about her in chapter 19.
5A will continue looking at some familiar psalms this week. They will also be creating some illustrations to go along with them.
*Dates to Remember:
6/7- Farewell Mass. Please wear Dress Uniform
6/8- Home Clothes Day and Pep Rally
Gym uniforms for both 5A and 5B should be worn to school on TUESDAYS and WEDNESDAY
*** Just a gentle reminder, please keep in mind our Fifth grade friends and teachers that have allergies and food sensitivities, when sending in snacks, lunches, or treats. Thank you for your attention and your mindfulness to this issue.
