BoxTops for Education
We continue to collect boxtops and 5th grade was fortunate enough to purchase megaphones to be used at Camp LaNoche with the funds received from this program. Please send in any that have been collected. Also, take two minutes and register on the BoxTops for Education website. It is very quick and easy and the school gets extra points for each email address that is registered. You can also sign up for contests that they hold periodically.
This week's story is Shiloh and the comprehension skill is Making Inferences. Our spelling words are compound words.The September reading goal should be completed by Friday 9/30. For October the goal is one biography and two non-fiction science books. Students should be selecting books close to their lexile levels to meet their goal. If they are not sure have them see me for a range.
We are working on exponents and Order of Operations. There are several tutorials and practice activities on the Pearsonsuccess.net website.The textbook is available on that sight as well.
5th Grade Camp Information Night
