ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS: 

This week the students will begin writing the rough draft for their cell phone story narratives.  The students will finish reading the Brothers Grimm book and the final test will be this Thursday. The students may use a book or their packet for this assessment. At the end of the week, our focus will switch to reading non-fiction texts.
 
REMINDERS:
October mystery book report projects are due Tuesday, 10/31.  This week’s goal is to find a book, get it approved by Mrs. Genet and start reading it! Please read the handout on this project.  
 

MATH:  

This week in Math, we will begin to practice division.  We will start the week with estimating quotients and 1-digit divisors, working our way up to 3-digit divisors.  Knowing your math facts is an important part of division.  Please make sure that your child is practicing his or her math facts daily.

Information about math club will be coming home this week!

Homework will be assigned on a daily basis!  Math homework should be completed independently.  If your child is struggling with homework, please let me know.

 

SCIENCE: 

 
This week in science we are continuing our exploration of food webs for our new unit on life science. We will be learning about how energy flows through the food web, and identifying "what does it eat," and "what is it eaten by?" 
 
Our life science unit will take us through the end of the first 9 weeks, and into the beginning of the next. We will be having "check point quizes" throughout the unit, so watch for these dates as they come up!

 

SOCIAL STUDIES: 

The Geography Unit Assessment will be this Friday, October 6th. A study guide will be passed out on Monday, and binders will be organized to help students prepare for the test. Please encourage your child to review each evening this week.

Fifth grade students will participate in the DARE program every Tuesday for the next ten weeks. Officer Gerber was in last week to teach her first lesson. Students discussed responsibilities and setting attainable goals.
