Notes from Mr. T

Welcome. On this page I will be sharing with you comments and thoughts about the curriculum and keeping you up to date on current projects and upcoming events as we move through the school year.

Dear Parents,

Our State Smarter Balance testing for the year concludes tomorrow with the completion of the Science section (except for students who need to take make-ups.)

In LANGUAGE ARTS this week we are continuing with the second round of our Literature Circles, with the next assignment due this Friday, May 11. We will begin telling our stories in class next Monday. In MATH we are beginning our toothpick bridge building project. Three groups will form building companies and compete to construct the strongest toothpick bridge, and bring it in on budget. In SOCIAL STUDIES we are focusing on the 50 states and their capitals for our States test on Monday, May 21, and in SCIENCE we have finished our study of the motion of the sun and stars in the sky and are completing the construction of our rockets and preparing for our rocket launch date of Monday, May 21.

Please see the attached material about our Monterey Bay Aquarium field trip (May 23-25). There is information about where we will be staying and a detailed list of what your student will need to bring. This information is also available on the Resources page of the 5th Grade website.

 

Best regards,

Mr. T
