Almost half way through the year! That is just crazy!
Here is the curriculum update for these three weeks before break:
Math- We are mastering adding and subtracting fractions. We will have a quiz on Friday (12/1) for equivalent fractions, and a test on Monday, December 18 on adding and subtracting fractions.
Reading- We are finishing up Esperanza and working on the remainder of our literary standards. We will focus on figurative language, point of view, comparing and contracting stories, and the elements of a drama. We will have a reading test on Monday, December 18.
Writing- Wrapping up our opinion pieces on whether or not fifth graders should have cell phones…these writing pieces are impressive! They write their final drafts on Monday, 12/4!
