Friday, October 4th – Science: Electricity and Magnetism Test
Friday, October 4th – Social Studies and Science Culminating Paper due. (See google classroom and the paper rubric given to each student for more information)
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.
There is no math homework this week since we are starting new math units and to allow plenty of time for students to work on their social studies/science
Social Studies/Science paper can be worked on at home. Students will be given several days to work on this in class so if they use their time wisely they should not have to work on this at home.
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.

Green Group Math- We will be starting the 5th grade Unit 5: 2-D Figures. This week we will be learning the vocabulary for this unit.
