The fifth grade is excited to once again celebrate the holiday season with 10 Days of Kindness. Students picked names today and will be spreading kindness over the next two weeks with a variety of activities. The activities for each day can be found here or on a sheet that was sent home today. Please DO NOT buy anything for the last day. If your student doesn’t have any books he/she is done with at home, a selection can be chosen from our classroom library. Just let me know if your student would like to “shop” in the classroom.
Fifth grade classes had Robert Crown presentations yesterday. Students will be completing a post-activity assignment in class next week. Here is a letter from Robert Crown about the information covered during the pre-learning and in-class sessions. We encourage you to talk with your child at home about what they learned.
We started Revolutionary War novel groups this past week. Students have had some time in class to get started on their assignments; anything not finished in class should be completed at home by the due date. Due dates and assignments can be found inside students’ manila folders or here. Due dates will vary by groups, so be sure to remind your student to check Edmodo to ensure he/she is staying on top of the work. In addition to their assigned chapters, students will fill out this sheet each week.
My class will be having someone from the Arlington Heights Memorial Library come and give book talks about some new books on Wednesday, December 11. Students will have the opportunity to check out some of the books that she talks about. Each student is encouraged to bring their library card with them, but they can also look up your child’s account if they don’t have their card with them.
My math class began Chapter 4 this week. Videos corresponding to each of the lessons can be found here. The IXL checklist with skills aligned to each chapter can be found here.
Please remember to sign and return your student’s Friday folder each week. Papers in the pockets of the Friday folder can be left at home.
Winter MAP testing will continue next week. 5th grade will be taking the math MAP test Thursday, December 12, at 9:10 am. If you’re able to schedule absences around these times, that would be greatly appreciated.
