I hope everyone is ready for another great week! Please take a minute to read about what is coming up.
There will be no school for students this Friday (Teacher Word Day), Monday (Columbus Day) or Tuesday (Teacher Learning Day). Enjoy the 5 day weekend!!
Here is a link to a sign up for our first discovery lab! http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c044aafa82da3fc1-5thgrade_1 It is tomorrow but we would love any help we can get! I apologize for the last minute sign up. We just got the lab cleaned up and ready on Friday thanks to some wonderful volunteers! We weren't sure if it would be ready but we are glad it is!
The first 9 weeks ends on October 9th (friday). Grades will be entered and finalized. Report cards will be printed and sent home on October 19th.
ITBS testing will be the week of the 19th as well.
Measurement and volume test will start on Tuesday. We will be learning about coordinate planes in Unit 7. Test dates for unit 7 are TBD.
Decimal Place value, Decimal Adding and Subtracting test will start Tuesday. We will be learning how to multiply and divide decimals in unit 3. Test dates for Unit 3 are TBD.
We will be starting out unit on cells and microorganisms this week. This is one of my favorite units! Students will have a "Cell City" project which will be done at home. Rubric and information will come home with them on Monday. The test is tentatively scheduled for October 16th.
I'm ready for another great weeks with great students!
