Weekly Report

Our math unit is going well! We have been practicing partial quotient and long division. For Number Talks, we have began to work on strategies to figure out how to divide mixed numbers with decimals by decimals and whole numbers. I am very impressed how quickly our class has caught on and how many different strategies they use to come up with the answer.

We have ended our social studies unit on Changes on the Plains and now have transitioned to our new Science unit on Matter and Physical and Chemical Changes! I am really excited for our experiments and labs this unit!

Writing: We are completing our rough drafts and will be working on revisions.

Reading: We are working on determining text structures and starting main ideas/summarization of nonfiction texts.

East Side families, It is time for you to complete the Georgia Parent Survey. The data gathered from these surveys will be used as part of the calculation of East Side’s School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.  We ask for one parent from each family to complete the survey by Friday, December 15, 2017.

Thank you to all parent volunteers for Ellis Island! You helped make Ellis Island a great success!! 🙂

Last week, we had a visit from High Touch High Tech and finished up our standards on Changes on the Plains unit. We will be testing on Wednesday. From there we will be picking up our unit in science on Matter and Chemical and Physical Changes.

In math, we finished Powers of 10 multiplication and division and are transitioning into how to use Powers of 10 for division using Partial Quotient method. Please encourage your child to continue to practice Powers of 10, until they are fluent on solving these problems. This will help with Partial Quotient division and when we get into our Measurement units later on. Dividing 2 digit divisors with whole numbers is our main focus this week. Next will be division with decimals!

Reading and Writing focus has been nonfiction. We are continuing to draft out our biographies and work on identifying heightened text complexity through context clues and morphology, text structures, and main ideas and details. We have learned how to in-text citate and write bibliographies.

  4. Search for at least 2 pieces of evidence for each side. (You may also use your SSIN.)
  5. After reading and recording evidence, “star” the side that you now believe is correct.

Weekly Report

Thank you for wonderful parent conference week! 🙂

We started our unit in Changes on the Plains in Social Studies, and as many of you have probably heard from you children, we had a visit from Cattle Trail expert, Mr. Richards. In addition, we have been learning all about the Transcontinental Railroad and the invention of the telegraph. This week, we will continue cattle trails and delve into the battles on the Plains.

Our non-fiction writing and reading units are going into full swing! Please make sure your child has their chapter book on their Wax figure. We are beginning to delve into note taking and researching for and completing our biography outlines this week by this Friday. We have been practicing finding main ideas and details within non-fiction texts.

Math, our multiplication of whole numbers and decimals will be tested on Monday the 30th of October. We will then be delving more into division of whole numbers and decimals. Our division unit will be pretty quick considering we have already began practicing our division strategies.

We will be having a STEM day on Friday.

Hurray for back to normal schedules! 🙂

Musical Postponed

The fifth grade musical has been postponed for a later date. We are going to find a date that works with Dodgen or Dickerson. to accommodate the larger numbers. We also want Mr. Matthews to be back to work with the students. The students with parts will still have their part.
