WELCOME TO MS. SCHMIDT'S
FIFTH GRADE CLASS

 

Last week was full of fun activities!  We participated in Marathon Kickoff by walking the neighborhood with our preschool buddies and going on a neighborhood scavenger hunt.  Remember to get Marathon money turned in as soon as possible.  Students can start wearing their MMSA t-shirts on Fridays once they reach their $150 goal.

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

LANGUAGE ARTS:

We are reaching the end of our first class novel, Wonder.  We will continue reading and writing this week.  We are also working on creating a descriptive writing piece about haunted houses. 

Homework:  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 continue working with adding and subtraction fractions including mixed numbers.  We are continuing to improve in our abilities to solve these problems.  Our first math test will be on Tuesday, October 17th.

Homework: Keep working on multiplication facts (0-12) at home!  Once we master them, the easier math will be all year long.

RELIGION:

The class did a terrific job participating at mass last week!  This week, we will conclude our unit on the sacraments of initiation, baptism, confirmation, and eucharist.  Our unit test will be on Friday, October 13th.

SCIENCE:

We will begin the week by conducting a controlled experiment.  The rest of the week will be spent learning about the wide variety of science tools we will encounter this year.

SOCIAL STUDIES:

We are finishing our first unit in Social Studies.  The unit focused on the earliest Americans, cultures of North America, trade networks, and the European heritage.  We will spend time in class showing what we learned.  From there, we will be taking a deeper dive into learning about Native Americans.
