Welcome to 5th grade!!!
This year we will be learning about everything from ecosystems to forces and motion. We will be reading many exciting books such as Remember my Name and The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. We are going to learn how much we really apply math to our everyday lives. There will be lots of hands-on activities and active learning! We will be going on several exciting field trips. Get ready and hang on tight for a great school year!
I welcome you to the fifth grade and I am so excited about this year!
I do all reminders, updates, and communitcations through the Class Dojo App. If you have lost your username and password, please let me know. This is the best way to stay in touch with your child's educational experience.
Reading Practice: Every night your child should read in his/her assigned book. This is important to help your child's growth as a reader. Please sign your child's reading log after he/she has read at least 30 minutes. Your child needs to read at least Monday through Thursday. Different genres of books will be required each grading period, those will be listed on your child's reading log.
Any unfinished class work: Any work not finished in class will need to be completed and sent to school the following day.
