Welcome
What Are We Doing This Week?
Special Announcements and Reminders

***Welcome Back!  Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

***I hope to see everyone at Open House on Thursday, August 17th from 5:00-7:00! Information went home on Friday.

***The fifth grade festival basket theme this year is "baking."  Please consider donating to make our basket and the festival a success.   Donations need to be turned into me by Wednesday, August 23rd. 

***Spirit day is this Wednesday. Students may wear a SMS shirt with khakis. 

Math

We are starting our first chapter, and we are focusing on place value through millions right now.  

***Students can find tutorials for math concepts on the 5th grade webpage. The link is under "math" and "pageLinks" as well.  There is also always a mini tutorial for every math lesson located on the ConnectED site.  This is a good way for students to see how a concept is taught. Maybe they forget how to do a problem once they get home from school? Maybe they need to see problems completed a different way?  Use this resource!  Students will be given their ConnectEd login information this week, and I will also be giving it out to parents at open house as well.

Reading/Writing

We are starting out first unit this week and will be looking at how to re-read a story or section to enhance comprehension.  

In English we will be reviewing how to write complete sentences.

We will have our first reading comprehension test on Friday. 

***Students have usernames and passwords for www.readtheory.org. This website can be used at home for extra reading and English practice.  I can view student progress through the teacher account. It is a great tool for everyone!

Social Studies

Our first social studies chapter looks at the first people who came to the western hemisphere from Asia and Europe

Religion

Students will need their rosaries each Wednesday. 

Our first religion chapter will talk about Jesus being the son of God.  Fifth grade religion focuses on the Sacraments, so this is where we will end up eventually. 

Science

SMS has new science books this year! Yay!  We are starting a unit on plants and animals this week. 

Spelling

Spelling words go home each Monday, and students have their tests on Fridays. The lists that go home on Mondays also contain vocab words that will appear on their Friday reading tests.  We spend each Monday learning our spelling and vocab words.  However, students need to practice these throughout the week as much as possible.

This week we are talking about short vowel words.
