This week, students will participate in the Ray School Walk-A-Thon. This will occur on Friday, May 20. This is also the day we will be planting our 5th grade Pollinators garden. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for both activities.
Here is an overview of what we will be doing this week in our CORE SUBJECTS:
This week, students will complete their tasks in the Daily Five. Students will use their IR books to guide them through Daily Five weekly.
**Please make sure your child is reading nightly for 30 minutes minimum from one book and bringing that book to and from school as if it were a textbook. This is an important component of Daily Five and a homework component, along with the Reading Log, comprise 30% of your child’s overall reading grade.
I will work with Guided Reading groups this week. We will continue work in Q4 books, focusing on inferencing in the text. Students will use text evidence quoted directly to support their reasoning.
This week, students will explore poetic devices. We will study simile, personification, and onomatopeia. Students will generate their own poems based on these devices.
In Math, students will begin Unit 8. Students will convert measurements and find the areas of real-world locations. Lessons 8.1-8.3 will be covered.
Social Studies- Students will begin work on Chapter 8 this week, the Constitution. In Lesson 1, students will learn about the Constitutional Convention. Students will quiz over lesson 1 on Monday, May 23.
