Wow. We are almost halfway through the first quarter of fifth grade. We are getting more used to our new homework schedule and very busy days in class. The students are consistently surprising me by their creativity and drive to learn!
Friday folders came home this week. You may have seen a missing assignments list. If your student is missing any work they will have that list in their folder on Friday. Please look through their work and talk with them about it. If you need a new copy of anything, please email me the description and I will do my best to get them a copy Monday.
Also in that Friday folder is a “family packet” for the topics in Math this new chapter. That packet is provided for you as a family to know what is being taught this chapter. It is also useful for extra study before the chapter test if your student needs a little extra work. It is not a required packet. If your student doesn’t need the extra practice they don’t need to do it. It is just there to help keep everyone in the loop.
This past week, Ms. Gilbert and I have started team teaching the fifth graders. She has taken all the math and I have taken the grammar and writing lessons. This week we will also start having the students move classrooms for their lessons (just like they will in middle school). Not only are these subjects our own personal strength subjects, but it helps prepare the kids for middle school. If you have any questions about math, feel free to still email me or write a note. If I can answer, I will. If I can’t, I will ask Ms. Gilbert and one of us will get back to you.
