Notes 9.22.17

Here are a few notes for the upcoming week:

— Please continue to utilize the notes in journals and/or folders to help your child study. Not everything will fit in the journals, so some handouts can be found in their folders. Please do not throw away any materials from their folders. We will clean them out together at the end of every nine weeks. I encourage students to paper clip their old work and quizzes/tests together to use them for spiraling throughout the year.

— We have been encouraging students to make note cards for all the topics we are studying. They can keep the note cards and continue using them to study for mid-quarter and end of quarter tests.

— Civil War Battles Quiz – 9.29.17

— Here’s the study guide: Civil War Battles Study Guide

— The students should have a map of the Civil War battles in their social studies folder.

Please let us know if there’s anything we can do to help!

Welcome to our 5th grade website! This site is designed to be an extra resource to aid in studying and staying up-to-date with what students are learning in our classrooms. Here, you can find our standards, teaching power points along with reviews and study guides. This is our first year launching this website; therefore, it is still a work in progress. At the moment we only have information about social studies, but science will be coming soon. Please check back frequently as we will continually be uploading more information. 

Below are some important upcoming dates in our classroom:

  • September 19 – History Mid-Quarter Test
  • September 21 – Science Mid-Quarter Test

Here are the study guides for each test:

 We believe that the partnership between the school and home is important for success. Please let us know if you have any questions!
