April is going to be a busy and exciting month in 5th grade! Here is a look at we will be up to in Language Arts and Social Studies.
5A: We will continue reading "Cheaper By the Dozen" for most of the month of April. This novel is usually a student favorite (and one of mine!) but it is challenging, so the majority of the reading will be done in class. Expect a few assignments each week and a spelling and vocabulary test on Friday.
5B: This class is working on articles, texts, and passages that all relate back to the Revolutionary War (which we are learning about in Social Studies). We will be using the Journeys text book series for the next few weeks while we work on these informational stories. Expect a few assignments, a spelling and vocabulary test on Fridays, and an open book comprehension test each week.
We will be using a variety of sources to learn about the Revolutionary War in social studies this month. Students will be using the textbook, watching videos, looking at pictures, and there will also be lecture/discussion lessons to help us learn about the beginning of the United States of America.
The Unit started right after Spring Break, Prepositions-Conjunctions-Interjections, will continue through most of April. As with past units, there will be daily assignments, but students should be able to finish them in class during the 10-15 minutes allotted during English class.
The poetry unit continues!
5th GRADE SERVICE PROJECT - BLOOD DRIVE ON APRIL 28th!
