Dear Parents-

We are continuing to work hard in 5th grade!  It is great and exciting to see the progress being made and we will continue to work even harder to show amazing growth.

Please continue to make sure your child is reading nightly and is getting their log filled out and signed.  This will count for a weekly grade. Students have set their goals now for the 2nd 9 weeks and should be working toward meeting those goals.  I'd like to see 100% of both classes make this goal this 9 weeks!  Reading nightly will help them accomplish this goal quickly!  

Please also make sure to check the weekly reading comprehension passages that students are working on.  They are given out on Monday and are due back on Thursday or Friday.  They are extremely important in practicing reading strategies and should be taken very seriously with detail.

 

Social Studies is also really busy in our room!  We are now reviewing all 50 states to test on the overall United States (with all 50 capitals as extra credit).  I am so proud of how well they have done on all of the regions and I know they will shine on this test!  It will be on Thursday, November 2nd.  I have included several resources for games online for your child to practice these states and capitals, and they have guides in their folders to help as well.  

 

 If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at anytime!

Mrs. James
