Thank you to all of the families that came out for Open
House. It was fun to meet new parents and see past students. We had quite a few
parents’ sign up for conferences. Those
who did not get a chance will get a note about open times.
* We are finishing up the NWEA tests this week and will be getting into a real routine.
* I put a link on the Social Studies page that lets you download an open textbook that we use sometimes during the year. Remember to choose 5th grade under the download heading. We start the year learning about our government and its 3 branches.
* In science we are working on learning the Scientific Inquiry and the Properties of Matter. Students will conduct experiments to learn about how matter reacts in different circumstances, how to collect and record data, and construct arguments to support their findings.
*By now students have signed up on Biblionasium to keep track of their reading at home. I have sent an email to you so you can monitor their reading minutes also.
Thank you for your support. If you have any concerns please email me.
