     HOMEWORK

    All homework is written on the homework board daily.

     If there is no written homework, students are told that.

    5th grade students are expected to, reminded to, and given time to copy assignments into their planners.

     

    PLANNERS 

     

    Please check to see if your child is using their planner for the purpose intended; which is to begin to practice organizational skills.

    They should be writing down assignments for daily homework and any assignment or projects' due date.

     

    My ELA students should have their Spelling City and Study Island log in info taped inside the cover. (We did this together in class.)

    Please contact me if your child needs a planner. 

    Replacements can be purchased in the school office.

    Each student was given one on their first day of attendance.

     

     READING

     

    Is your child reading for enjoyment?? Are they recording their reading on our reading logs??

    A.R.

      BEGAN 2ND QUARTER...LETTERS OF EXPLANATION WERE SENT HOME ON NOVEMBER 4TH. IT REQUIRED YOUR SIGNATURE AND WAS TO BE RETURNED.

    EACH STUDENT SHOULD HAVE READ BOOKS TOTALING 15 A.R. POINTS. 

     

    Now is the time for students to take a look at where they are academically and make any adjustments, including homework practice, needed to be successful by the end of thier 5th grade year.

     

     

     

    In our reading group we are continuing to work with a variey of both literary and informational texts.

    We read as a whole class, break off into smaller groups, and we analyze and write about what we've read.

    Students practice daily determining the main idea; what's this story/passage mostly about, text structure,theme,plot and other story elements.

    They're also learning how the structure an author chooses helps the reader to better understand the  story and information.

     

     

     SPELLING and VOCABULARY

     

     

    My ELA students should have their Spelling City and Study Island log in info taped inside the cover. (We did this together in class.)

    Both Study Island and Spelling City is done in class, but can also be done at home!! 

    Please contact me if your child needs a planner. 

    Replacements can be purchased in the school office.

    Each student was given one on their first day of attendance.
