WELCOME TO FIFTH GRADE

WITH MS. SCHMIDT

 

Thanks to all of you for making it to conferences last week.  It is always great to have a conversation about your wonderful children.  I hope everyone had a nice Presidents' Day and enjoyed the extra days off.

Please feel reach out at anytime by email at schmidtm@mmsaschool.org.

LANGUAGE ARTS:

We will be finalizing our comparative essays.  We will also continue working on identifying figurative language.  With one less day in the week, we will squeeze in a spelling test on Friday.

Homework:  February is I LOVE TO READ MONTH!  Encourage your student to read at least 30 minutes at home each evening.  They should have books from the school library and they are always welcome to utilize our classroom library.

MATH:

This week we will focus on dividing with two digits.  As the week progresses, we will start dividing with decimals.  This can be tricky for students so please encourage them to practice the skill at home as well.

Homework: If no math homework, students should go onto Prodigy to work on additional math practice.  I have heard great things from the students about their confidence increasing in math.  Outside of assigned work, the students answered nearly 600 math problems last week!

RELIGION:

We will continue our learning about Lent.  On Friday, we will participate in Stations of the Cross.  This will continue every Friday during the lenten season.

SCIENCE:

This week, we will learn about how wildlife is tracked and monitored, metamorphosis, invertebrates, and vertebrates.

SOCIAL STUDIES:

In social studies, we will learn about slavery in the early colonies.  We will also learn about how new ideas were spread during this time.
