Welcome to the last full school week of December 2017!!!! I can't believe how fast the school year is going already!! I just want to remind all parents that homework WILL be given this week, but it will look a little different. They will receive homework on Monday that is DUE on  TUESDAY and then they will be given homework on Tuesday that is DUE on THURSDAY

Here are the lessons for this week:

Language Arts-Week of December 18, 2017:

In Reading, students will continue to read articles and watch video clips on the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. They will also continue working in their "Informational Book Clubs". These are groups of readers (usually 4-6 students) who meet frequently together to discuss articles THEY have choosen to read and topics THEY are interested in. While engaged in Book Clubs, students will use a variety of reading strategies to plan and prepare for what they want to discuss with their classmates. The focus of these "clubs" is to have authentic, open-ended, student-led discussions. 

In Writing, students will continue to use a graphic organizer (Cornell Notes) to take notes about their topic they are researching about. This week, students will start to organize the notes in their Google Doc accounts to prepare to write their research essay after vacation. We will visit the library 2 times this week. 

 

Homework for this week:

  • Monday (December 18th) - "Snowman Poem" - DUE Tuesday (December 19th)
  • Tuesday (December 19th) - "A Snowy Day" (picture with detailed paragraph describing the picture) - DUE Thursday (December 21st)

In Reading, students are continuing to read articles and watch short video clips on the great fire of Chicago in 1871.

Students have chosen a famous person in history, an event in history, a country, a science topic (space, etc.) or a sport to research about. Students will first take these notes using a "Cornell Notes" graphic organizer, then they will type these notes on their Google Doc account.

Welcome to a new week!! What an exciting surprise we received on Saturday! SNOW!! I hope everyone had an opportunity to enjoy this wonderful surprise with their families!! 

On a different note, please speak to your child about being "kind" to everyone. As the days are getting closer to Christmas, the students' behavior in the 5th grade is declining. We have had several conversations in the classroom about students not being kind to one another. We talk a lot in the 5th grade, that you don't have to be friends with everyone, but you MUST RESPECT everyone. We also talk about, "if you don't have anything nice to say, then please don't say it at all." Please remind your child about this. Thank you.

Here are the lessons for this week:

Language Arts-Week of December 11, 2017:

In Reading, students are continuing to read: Hana's Suitcase. This week they will be learning about different text structures in the book (Descriptive structures, Chronological structures, and Compare/Contrast structures).

  • Descriptive Structures: locate adjectives, words and phrases that describe the topic.
  • Chronological Structures: words that signal sequence, use of dates and numbers.
  • Compare/Contrast Structure: words that show how events and topics are similar and different.

Students will use their CORE novel and independent reading book to find these structures. They will work with the teacher, with a partner, in small groups and independently.

In Writing, students will begin to "map" out their expert topic using a graphic organizer. They will plan out their "expert topic" and the 3 subtopics for their expository essay. They will write down their topic sentence for each subtopic, the "attention getter" for their essay, and their thesis statement.

 

Homework for this week:

  • "Reading Log"
  • Read for 30 minutes everynight
  • Write down at least 3 new or interesting vocabulary words everyday
  • Write a 5th grade summary each night
