We have just finished our land forms unit. We had a wonderful time making land form dioramas. We also finished up with 2 volcanoes. The students did a wonderful job.
We are now starting our unit on the colonies and we will be learning about magnets in science. Our Colonial fair will be on November 20, 2017 at 1:00 in the gym. The students will experience a few things from the colonial days.
Dear Parents, I hope you had a fun and save Halloween! We are currently working to learn about landforms and how they are created. We will be creating a diorama and painting it in our art class. We could really use some help to make the dough needed to create the diorama. We will need 1 bag of dough for each child. They will also need a piece of cardboard cut into a 9x9 or 12x12 square. We will need this by Friday November 3, 2017. If you are unable to get the supplies I will have extra provided. If you are willing to make some extra batches of dough please let me know. Thank you, Mrs. Leavitt

This is the 1st week of 5rd grade spelling homework. In my class spelling depends greatly on homework completion. My homework is all listed on my website on the spelling tab. The students will need to complete 1 assignment for each night we are in school that week. On a normal week that would be 4 assignments. Students should have a parent sign off that spelling has been completed.
Tomorrow is our first math Sage test. Practice IXL. Work on sections you need to practice. I would suggest dividing fractions, conversions, quadrilaterals, and long division. Make sure you get a good night sleep and remember you are welcome to bring mints. Our last Sage test will be Thursday.
