I gave information packets to those students who were interested in strings, ORFF or chorus. Please let me know if you would like one for your child.
Each Friday we will have a selection test which is based on the main story of the week and a cold read that goes along with the skill of the week. Each student wrote the instructions for accessing the reading textbook online into their planner so that it won't be necessary to carry the book home to reread the stories.
Next week I will send home a letter with the access information for the New Social Studies program. Periodically, I will assign specific skill lessons from the online text so be sure to keep the letter in a safe place. For the remainder of August we will be working on a Unit on Geography.
Your child should have brought home some information regarding Science Fair today. Please encourage your child to keep up with the deadlines/due dates. Questions are due August 29th.
Let me say that I am really enjoying my class so far this year. I am thrilled with how quickly they are picking up our routines and their enthusiasm for learning. It is going to be a great year in 5th gradeJ
