I hope you had a great weekend! We have a fun and busy week ahead of us.
Tuesday, October 29th – Green Group Math Test
Thursday, October 31st – 1920’s Day (Students can dress up like there are living in the 20’s. I will show them some example pictures in class)
Friday, November 1st – Social Studies Test
Homework will not be taken for a grade this year, instead I will be assigning extra practice or incomplete assignments for work to do at home. This will help students understand the importance of practicing and studying at home, without a grade or deadline causing anxiety.
Teal Team should work on workbook pg. 373-374, 389-390, and 401-402.
Green Group has a Unit 5 geometry review assignment.
Please check your child's agenda NIGHTLY. Teachers will be signing agendas for the first semester to teach responsibility. This is where you will find notes from the teacher, test dates, student homework, etc. I ask that you sign at least once a week so I can make sure it is being shown to parents. If I leave a note in your child’s agenda, I expect it to be reviewed and signed by you. It is your child’s responsibility to show you and then show me that they have received your signature the following day.
Test Dates- I will send out test dates and changes in my weekly blast.
Quizzes- In 5th grade, quizzes are unannounced. Students are expected to study nightly so they are always prepared.
