This week we learned about how fractions, decimals, and percentages are equal. Students should have a better understanding of how to figure sale prices on percentage-off sales. We are going to be doing science review leading up to the science STAAR.
Math Retake – May 14
Reading Retake – May 15
Science STAAR – May 16
Last day – May 23 – 5th AWARDS
This week we will be reviewing PMDAS and problem-solving strategies. Students will visit the middle school on Wednesday to get a small glimpse of what next year will look like. Thursday is field day from 8:15 – 11:30. Students can be signed out AFTER field day is over. We are hoping to have results from the STAAR in at the beginning of next week and will let you know as soon as we get them. Hope you have a great week!!!
This week we will be bringing science review with math concepts into the classroom. We will also be working on math skills that students will need to be strong in for the sixth grade. Students will take a common assessment on some of those skills at the end of the week. I know that the first STAAR testing is behind us but we have 5 1/2 weeks left with lots of material to cover. Please see that your child is in attendance so they do not fall behind.
REMINDER: NO SCHOOL Monday, April 23
Field Day is April 26th
Students were to bring home any unfinished work from the past few weeks to complete for homework. All assignments are due on MONDAY! We will go over test taking strategies on Monday. The Math STAAR will be Tuesday and the Reading on Wednesday. Please see that your child gets a good nights rest and eats a healthy breakfast both mornings. We know that they will ROCK this test!
Have a great weekend!!!
The final week before STAAR! We are continuing to work on low skills and problem-solving strategies. It is very important for students to be in class this week for review. I have placed all grades in Skyward for you to see where your child is in my class. If an assignment is posted without any comments that will be the final grade (corrections were made in class). If a grade is posted with the comment “can correct”, the student has the opportunity to correct and return by Friday to change the grade. If the assignment is marked “missing”, the student is not using class time wisely and is behind on the assignment. Students have been given extra days in class to catch up and do corrections.
Have a great week!
REMINDER: Math STAAR – March 10th – Reading STAAR – March 11th
This week we will continue reviewing previously taught skills. Students are working on problem-solving and using the correct operations in word problems. We will have our Easter Party on Thursday, March 29th at White Oak Baptist Gym. Please send filled Easter eggs, snacks, drinks, and permission slips before Tuesday. No school on Friday!
Have a great weekend!
I hope that everyone enjoyed Spring Break. I know that with the beautiful weather and much-needed naps that I am refreshed and ready to tackle the next few weeks ahead of us. We will be reviewing previously taught skills and problem-solving strategies to prepare for the upcoming STAAR. It is very crucial for students to be at school to review and tackle skills they may struggle with. Please continue to work on multiplication facts at home. Students who are fluent with their facts are the most successful in 5th-grade math.
Please look for the permission slip coming home today for the Easter Party. Due to next weeks weather forecast, the party has been relocated to White Oak Baptist Church Gymnasium. Students MUST return the permission slip in order to ride the bus to the party.
DATES TO KNOW:
