A math review sheet should have come home tonight to help your son/daughter get ready for a Division math test on Friday. Students are being asked to complete the even numbered problems tonight and come with any questions tomorrow.
Tomorrow students will be finishing that worksheet by doing the odd numbers and coming with any other questions. I encouraged students to plan ahead by looking at their schedules the next two evenings and to make a choice about whether they should be doing the whole assignment tonight or do half tonight and half tomorrow night.
Thanks and happy reviewing!!
Students have math homework this evening which is due back to school tomorrow. Students had some time to work on this assignment at school so please check with your child if they have it completed. Students are being asked to do all the questions on page 111 of their math workbook. Please have your child come to school tomorrow if they have any questions or difficulty with this assignment. Have a great afternoon!
Fifth grade teachers have planned an activity for the entire fifth grade on the afternoon of Friday, Feb. 10. We will not need parent volunteers to help run the activity, but we will send out an email regarding donations of party supplies and snacks. We will hold Valentine exchanges in our individual classrooms earlier that day. If your child wishes to bring Valentine’s cards, please make sure that they have one for each student in our class. Here is a Class List.
Going home with your child today is some reading homework to help your child have a better understanding or the historical book they will begin reading in a book club. We have already done some research at school by watching some 5th grade appropriate videos of the time period that they will be learning about. Students will be given a research grade on this assignment so please encourage them to take their time and do a great job!
I am asking students to continue that research at home so they can continue to learn more about this event, the famous people, and the where and when it was taking place. I warned students today that depending on the event they were researching that they needed to be very careful while researching because they could come across something that you may not want them to see at this time. I suggested to the class that they talk with you before they began any research on their topic so you could help direct and monitor them. A great tool to use is called “safe search kids”. This website is usually pretty good at making sure that whatever topic is being searched is age appropriate but I would still suggest you use caution.

This week Friday students will be taking a test over Unit 4 (Multiplication with Whole Numbers and Decimals). There will be a practice sheet coming home for homework tonight. Students are being asked to do the even numbered problems this evening and the odd numbered problems on Thursday evening to help them prepare for this assessment.
Also, the students will be taking a Social Studies test next week Tuesday over the colonization of the New World. We are currently filling out a review packet to help students review for this test. There is a lot of information to remember, so please have your students study for this test over multiple evenings or it will be a struggle for them.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns! Have a great Wednesday!
