I would just like to say a HUGE THANK YOU for everyone’s support during the Milestones. Thank you for the snacks, the kids coming to school on time, and keeping students home when they are sick! Y’all are amazing and thank you for all the support!
The 5th Grade Graduation Party is coming very very soon!!! We want all of our student to be on the slide show so make sure you have submitted a FEW photos from your child’s Kincaid years (preferably with other 5th grade friends) to the link below for consideration. It is requested that you submit a side by side collage of a toddler photo and a current photo. Do NOT submit solo baby/toddler pics, as no one will know who they are except the parents of that child.
**Absolute latest deadline is Tuesday, April 24th!**
We have a lot of things happening this week! Put these things in your calendar:
• Tuesday- Future JJ DANIEL Students will be going on their Middle School Field Trip.
• Wednesday- Computation Quiz & Midwest State and Capital Quiz
• Thursday- FIELD TRIP! Wear 5th grade t-shirt or red.
• Friday – Career Day and Progress Reports
The rest of the year we are focusing on computation math skills. Students have created a math goal for themselves on what they would like to improve on before they go to Middle School. Wednesday we will have a Computation Quiz.
We are working on our projects for Decades Day. Our class is studying the 1950s and each student has a category they are studying. This week we are working on creating a timeline for each of our categories.
We are working on identifying the 50 states and their capitals. I am splitting the states into sections to make it easier to study. The quiz for Midwest States will be on Wednesday. There is a Quizlet made for students to use to study.
Students have 2 projects that involve states. One is their individual State Project. Directions can be found here: State Project-2ljfm8b. They are due May 18th.
The second project is their States Parade Float. The kids are in groups of 2-3 students create a float in class that they will present in a parade with the rest of 5th grade on May 14th. We will begin building our floats NEXT week. This week we are researching our state and determining what items we need to bring to class. I would suggest to start saving boxes for the base. Here is a photo that is an example of what students would be making.
The kids are reading The Watson’s Go to Birmingham. This is a fantastic book and I know the students are really enjoying it. Students will be assigned reading to do at home as homework. We are also studying World Wise 12 words. The test for that list will be next week. There is a Quizlet already made and ready for students to use to study.
