Welcome back for another great school year!
I truly am excited to work with your 5th graders this year. We have so much to look forward to!
The students will be receiving their first set of spelling words on September 12. Spelling test days will always be on day 5 of the schedule. Focus and study for these tests are primarily the responsibility of the students at home. Check the resources tab for the weekly lists.
Summer reading packets should be turned into me by Friday, August 31. Students are also required to complete one of the following projects on the book “Book in a box”, “Book timeline”, “Book test”, or “Graphic chapter”. Directions for their project were distributed on Monday. We will have some class time on Wednesday, Friday, and Friday of next week to work on them. The projects will need to be completed at home. The due date will be on Wednesday, September 12.
Topics covered this week:
