Mr. Kelly:  We finished Decimals 1 on Tues., and we started Decimals 2 on Wed.  Decimals 2 will be multiplication and division of decimals.



Ms. Scaggs:  We will be continuing Chapter 5 and Ecosystems, food webs and types of relationships in our world. 



Ms. Scaggs:  Most students did fairly well on the open book/notes test, however not all were A or B.  The students have the tests.  We have begun to cover part of Chapter 10, three branches of government. We will be looking at the constitution and talking a little about ISIS for better understanding of both subjects and current events in the news.

Mrs. Carter:  We are finished reading Bridge to Terabithia.  We will watch the movie version of this book next week. Students will then write an essay discussing the differences between the two.

Mrs. Greger:  Students continue to read Bridge to Terabithia.  We will finish with the novel this week, and then we will watch the movie.  The test is planned for the week after Thanksgiving.



Mrs. Greger:  Students are learning to organize a typical informational essay.  We wrote an essay about fall together last week.  Now students are writing their own essays about their favorite seasons.  Look for finished products by next week.

Mr. Kelly:  We will be having the Pronouns test on Tues. the 24th.



Mrs. Thomas:  This week students worked on their keyboarding skills and created a Turkey poem while adding a border and graphic to it. Any time students want to practice their keyboarding or any skills we do during technology they can access my webpage at http://protopage.com/portatech#Untitled/5th_grade.  Next week we will be keyboarding and creating pictures using spreadsheets.
