The IOWA schedule can be found below. Please make sure your child gets to school on time and is able to walk all the way down to our classroom by 7:40. They also need a good breakfast and a great nights sleep! We want them alert and focused during testing.

5th graders have not been on their best behavior lately. This is a big problem during IOWA testing week. For this week, we are focusing on following directions. They are capable of following directions but choose not to listen or choose to not follow directions on purpose. Please make sure you are checking class dojo nightly and see if they are losing points for not following directions. There will be prizes at the end of the week for students who have done well with following directions. There is also a class dojo rewards day next monday for Halloween! Students have been earning points the whole first quarter and will get rewards based on their number of points. I will be sending home a weekly dojo report friday with their total points as well for our rewards day Monday.
Blue Math- We have started this week with dividing decimals. They need to continue to practice multiplying and dividing decimals at home. They have several practice pages from their workbook in their binders. As we have no technology this week, we are going to be practicing out of their workbook and those will go home to practice and review. Our test over this unit will be next Friday November 4th.
Yellow Math- We have been reviewing converting measurement for over a week now. They have learned how to convert customary measurements and metric measurements. We will also be learning volume later this week. There are several practice pages we have done in class in students binders for extra practice and review. They need to be reviewing these nightly. Our test over this unit will be November 16th.
Social Studies- We started this week learning about America during the turn of the century. We will be covering westward movement, cattle drives, the industrial revolution, inventors, immigration, and affects on Native American Cultures. Our test over this unit will be November 11th.
