We are so close to the end of a wonderful year in 5th grade! Here is a quick look at what will be accomplishing in the weeks leading up to the FIFTH GRADE FINISH LINE!
5A will continue working in the text book the 2nd and 3rd weeks of May. These stories are nonfiction and supplement what we are learning about in Social Studies in regard to the American Revolution.
5B is finishing "Cheaper By The Dozen." We will be finished with the novel by Thursday May 15th. Students will be able to take the AR test for points to count towards 4th quarter, but they will not be available to spend at the AR store (the last store will be Tuesday May 13th). Students can also decide to wait until summer to take AR tests, so points can count towards their 2014-2015 school year totals.
Our Sentences Unit is a great review of all we have learned this year. The students have shown immense growth this year! Continue to expect near daily assignments through the end of next week (May 15th).
The Revolutionary War test will be Thursday May 8th; this will be the final test of the year. We will spend our remaining class periods covering the Constitution, Articles of Confederation, and installation of George Washington as our nation's first President.
The poetry project will be finished this Friday (May 9th). We will be working on a few creative writing in-class assignments in the last few class periods of the school year.
This Friday (May 9th) will be the last Spelling test for BOTH 5A and 5B for the school year.
