5th Grade Teamletter
Ms. Scaggs: My homeroom put in some effort on taking their Stanford tests. Next week we will be taking the quiz on the elements Tuesday. Sorry for my forgetting about the Stanford tests. We will also be doing a lab on density, vocabulary from page 448 and a study guide on Physical and Chemical changes.
A special note from Ms. Scaggs to her homeroom parents. We have a large number of students that have not had homework completed on time. Please check your email that you have provided to the school. I will be emailing parents if this behavior continues next week.
Ms. Scaggs: We will spend two more days in groups finishing our poster/presentations. These will be presented to class starting on Tuesday of next week. We will also discuss and investigate facts about our original 13 colonies.
Mrs. Sullenger: This week the students wrote a newspaper article about their theory as to what happened to the Lost Colony of Roanoke. Next week, we will finish the article and do a simulation of colonial life.
Mrs. Carter: We will be finishing our first novel project over Lawn Boy. This project is a Character Tie where students identify 5 character traits of any character and then create a visual for each of the traits to present to the class. We will then begin a brief project about jobs and learning styles.
Mrs. Greger: Students have finished the novel, The Lawn Boy. Students will present a “character tie.” They will practice thinking about character traits and using evidence from the story to present their thoughts. They will also practice speaking and listening as the ties are presented.
Mrs. Greger: This week we reviewed comma use. Next week students will begin learning about verbs in Unit 3 of the textbook.
Mrs. Thomas: This week students practiced keyboarding using Typing Master, continued to talk about email and learned about the various drives on a computer. Students currently have a homework assignment in their email that is due to me by September 26th at 3:00. Here is my website where students can go to practice keyboarding at home or access a variety of other web links that we use during school - http://protopage.com/portatech#Untitled/5th_grade. Next week we will continue keyboarding and how to create an outline using Google Documents.
