We will continue to collect items for our Acts of Kindness Week. Our class needs to bring in playing cards to include in the hygiene pack by Monday, November 11th. I was told by a parent that the Dollar Tree by Kroger has the playing cards at the checkout aisle. Our 5th grade parent volunteers will be collecting all the items from different classes and separating them to then pass out to the homeroom classes so that they can then create the hygiene bags on Wednesday. The playing cards will need to be in our classroom on Monday to allow those parent volunteers to separate all items so the 5th graders can then assemble the bags on Wednesday.
Tuesday, November 12th--Please bring in your gently used or new 5th grade book by Tuesday. We will be wrapping these books on Tuesday morning. We have a few classroom parents helping us do this in the a.m.
Monday, November 11th we will honor our community veterans. Our class has already made great American Flags and posters to hold up as the Veterans lineup for the parade within our school.
Friday, November 15th–trip to the movies to see Wonder. Don’t forget to bring in $1 for PJ Day. We are allowing our students to wear PJs to the movies with of course the class T-shirt.
Here is what we will be learning next week:
Math–The students will continue to work with decimals. We will add and subtract decimals and revisit some of the concepts that we have learned the last few months like order of operation, place value, reading and writing decimals, and of course long division and multiplication. We will continue to work with word problems as well.
Vocabulary/Grammar--In grammar, we are learning how to properly use commas not only in a series, but as introductory elements, to set off the words yes or no, in a tag question, or to indicate direct address. Examples: This is book belongs to you, doesn’t it? Blake, park your car in any of the reserved spots. Yes, you may have another piece of cake. Our prefix this week will include co-com which mean together, with. Don’t worry, there are only ten in total and the test won’t be until the following Monday due to our field trip to the movies.
Social Studies— Our students are learning about Immigration and Ellis Island. Be sure to work on your Immigration Day project. Paperwork on what to do and how to do it went home a few weeks ago. We will continue learning about it this week.
ELA/Reading- The students are doing research on Ellis Island and the Immigrants.They will be writing an Information piece on what they have learned. We are also working hard on our Raps about famous events or people. A link about the rap is listed below.
