The annual 5th grade Candy Cane sale is officially here!
We have had a low key week here in room 201. We’ve been catching up on writing, grammar, and other little things that don’t get much attention when we are in full curriculum mode! It’s been a nice pace! However, next week we are back at it until Christmas Break!
Math: It would be helpful to start talking to your child about time on an analog clock. We will soon be telling time before and after the hour, to the nearest five minutes and minute, and telling how much time has passed (elapsed time). These elapsed time lessons are difficult, especially if the students don’t have a solid grasp of time.
Science: We will be discussing fossils, doing a review, and playing jeopardy next week.
Reading and Writing: We are reading and writing about information. The students are writing about a topic they know a lot about and then we are reading books to study the text features of informational writing.
Homework: You may have noticed there was no homework this week! Next week we will have two math sheets, spelling, and a science review.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! This is a great group of kids. Each one of them comes to school with a smile, is kind to others, and works hard. I am blessed to have your child in class.
This coming Friday is Veteran’s Day!
We will honor this day and all the veterans by wearing RED WHITE AND BLUE.
Please visit the school blog with more information about Veteran’s Day.
Tomorrow is an ALL SCHOOL PJ Day!!
Tomorrow is an EARLY RELEASE Day!!
Students will be dismissed at 12:15. If your child needs to bring home a sack lunch, please email me by 9:00 tomorrow morning.

Not only is Moby Max great for fact fluency but it also touches on our common core standards. I have “assigned” some science lessons in Moby Max. One is on plant adaptations that we just finished and the others are on Earth Changes, which is the unit we are currently studying. All of this is a great review and practice for your child.
Next week we will only have one homework page and it’s a graphing paper having to use their Halloween candy. The homework I would like us to focus on next week is, Moby Max. I will still send a reminder sheet on Monday.
Last week we had Meteorologist, Matt Kirkwood here to talk about the weather. We learned some fascinating things about thunder, lightning, tornadoes, and a weather ball! Ainslee was so excited about it, she bought one of her own! Maybe we have a future meteorologist???
The 3rd grade teachers have a lot of learning games and activities planned for the students on Halloween day. Below is a link if you are able to send in donated items.
Remember there is no specific party time this year. We will spend the day doing Halloween activities as a grade level.
