Reminder -Sign up online for parent-teacher conferences.
Math: We are skipping ahead to a Geometry unit on 3d shapes, perimeter, area, surface area and volume. This can be a tough unit. Please utilize the schoology videos for help. Try to practice the ixl.com categories listed below.
Practice IXL.com and Study Island categories are listed below. Math homework is pretty consistent. Each week the students will have 4-5 Math Box pages to work on in their journals. We go over each box at some point throughout the week. I encourage students to attempt the boxes they feel confident in doing at home or with a little help and leave any boxes that are causing frustration for school. Study Links are on the iPads this year. Students are provided work time during the day for study links. Study Links will only be homework if they were not completed during class. Due Dates for Math Boxes and Study Links will always be posted below.
Reading: We are currently in Unit 5 in which we are working on determining the meaning of words and phrases, including figurative language. We are also studying how a series of chapters, scenes, or stanzas fits together to provide the overall text structure of a story, drama, or poem. Lastly, we are working on comparing and contrastring stories in the same genre on their approaches to similar themes and topics. For extra practice, students can work on the following 5th grade 2010 ELA Study Island standards: 1h, 1i and 1l. Students can also work on the following IXL standards: S3, S5, T3, T7, T9 and X2. Study Island and IXL are good ways to prepare for unit tests. Please look below for due dates on various activities throughout the year.
Science: We are rounding out our Scientific Process Unit with our Science Fair Projects. An informational packet was sent home on 1/3/18 detailing the expectations and a timeline of events/due dates. This has also been posted on Class Dojo for your reference.
Social Studies: We are studying Native Americans of North America. The tribes of our study will be from the northwest, southwest, and plains regions of the United States. There will some projects the kids will need to work on at home and will need your assistance.
Goal:Step 468 by the end of February. When students complete a book they should take a comprehension test on the Accelerated Reader link: https://hosted237.renlearn.com/161896
