There are several announcements below about 5th grade so PLEASE read!
Field Trip- As you know, our Wahsega Field Trip is coming up. We need all YELLOW permission forms turned in by next Friday 2/5 so we can tell them camp our numbers and plan accordingly. Money and medical forms will be accepted until later in February. We will also be sending home a few more forms to be filled out including insurance and a movie permission form. Those should come out later this week.
5th Grade Picture- Our big 5th grade picture will be February 3rd (WEDNESDAY). Please make sure you child wears or brings jeans to wear for the picture. We have our 5th grade t-shirts which we will give to them to wear at the time of the picture. They can take the shirts home after that.
Science- We just started our electricity and magnetism unit. Students have already learned about static electricity and conductors and insulators. We will also be learning about the different types of electric circuits and the difference between bar magnets and electromagnets. Test date for this unit is scheduled for February 11th.
Blue Math- We have just started our measurement and volume unit. Students will learn how to convert measurements in both customary and metric measurements. They will NOT have to convert between the two different systems, just within. We will also be learning about how to find the volume of a 3D figure. Our test for this unit is scheduled for February 26th.
Yellow Math- Our units are getting more and more algebraic. Luckily, I LOVE algebra! However, this is a very difficult concept to catch onto. Please make sure you are reviewing with your child. We are currently reviewing how to solve equations that have two steps. We will then learn about inequalities, solving inequalities, and graphing inequalities on a number line. Lastly, we will be using unit rates to problem solve. Our test is scheduled for February 22nd.
Check back every week for a new post with information about the coming week.
