Spring Break Updates

Happy Friday!

I have given your student an optional Milestone review to take over Spring Break. I have also attached the answers to the back, folded, for you to check if they choose to complete it. Dreambox and Moby Max are other options for practice over the break. Again, these assignments do not need to be submitted as they are optional.
Looking ahead to after break, we will have Milestones and then will begin preparation for a Wax Museum project as well as a poetry unit. There will be more information  to come on both of these.
I appreciate everything you do, and I wish you all a wonderful spring break!

March 26-30

Happy Sunday! I cannot believe it is one week until Spring Break. This week we have several events going on. Friday is our Arts Jubilee. This will be several art rotations throughout the day. Thursday we will visit 5th grade’s Inventure Convention in the Learning Commons.

In reading, we will be reviewing paired passages and will work with comparing aspects from both. In writing, we will continue constructed response writing. In math, we will continue our study on time and move into elapsed time. In addition, we will continue reviewing skills from the year.
