Welcome to 5th grade!
Another fabulous week in 5th grade! This week in ELA, students focused on grammar skills (involving verb tense and comma placement), characterization, and non-fiction reading strategies. Be sure to ask your child about our adventure with the astronauts from Apollo 13!
Below you will find a photo from our Pel Pal Lunch. Students who wished to participate the pen pal writing opportunity with my students from Delaware Tech were placed into a lottery and drawn at random. These students, among others, were our lucky winners! Those who did not get selected this time will have other opportunities throughout the rest of the year to become involved in writing activities such as this one.
BIG SHOUT OUT TO OUR SPELLING BEE CONTESTANTS! They all did a wonderful job, and we are so proud of their accomplishments!
Attached you will find a copy of the homework for the month of February. Please read over the directions closely, as this assignment is very different from previous homework assignments. We are encouraging students to continue on this journey of independent reading, as there are so many benefits to reading at home! Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.
