ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS:
The children will continue practicing comprehension skills in class. They will also work on subject and verb agreements in their writing. Your student’s STAR results will come home this week. Please look for this paper. A good goal for an average fifth grader at this point in the year would be a Percentile Rank (PR) around 60% and a Grade Equivalent of 5.6 (That means your student is a typical fifth grader reading at the sixth month of school). I do NOT need you to sign these. I just sent them home so you could be informed about your child’s current reading level. Please email me at email@example.com with any questions.
*Weekly HW: CC book Unit 2: Key ideas and Details in Literature: Lesson 8 Finding the Theme of a Poem is due this Friday, 1/18!

Fifth grade students are continuing to master decimals! We will continue to spend time multiplying decimals, both estimates and exact products. Core 2 has started to work on dividing decimals. Our unit test will be towards the end of next week for most classes.
Students have a new assignment on Khan Academy. To login to their account, students need to visit www.khanacademy.org, and click the Continue with Google option. They will then enter their school login 26 + first two letters of their first name + full last name @gapps.chippewa.k12.oh.us (for example firstname.lastname@example.org). Please email me with questions!
Math Club will meet on the 17th and 31st this month.
This week in science we will continue our Stars unit. We are still working through our webquest, and learning a lot of new and interesting information about the stars. We will do a short activity with constellations, and then we will have a quiz on stars. I will announce the date of the quiz as we get further along in the unit. Have a wonderful week!
I believe that the prelimiinary round for the National Geographic Bee went really well last week. Students seemed to enjoy the challenge of answering trivia questions about our country and the world. The names of the 10 CIS students that qualify for the school GEOBEE will be announced this week.
Now that our unit over the ancient civilizations is complete, students will reflect on their learning and write an opinion essay over which civilization they feel was the most advanced. Students will use information from multiple online passages, plan their essay using an outline, and type their response. This will help prepare students for the writing portion of the AIR test later this spring.
DARE is scheduled to start back up each Monday this month.
