Fifth Grade Overview

December 14, 2018

Barger Service Project:  Don’t forget to put your child to work to earn $10.00 for gifts for our “buddies” at Barger school.  We have bought the same thing for each of their students. We stuffed stockings last week and visited Barger today.

FYI: During devotion time at school we are looking at the Christmas story and encouraging the students to participate in kindness activities.  Some of the suggestions/activities will take place at school and some at home. Most will not need any parent involvement or money to spend.  You may have the supplies at home already or the students may use supplies we have at school. The Advent Season is one way to prepare our hearts for the celebration of Jesus’ birthday.  We all need to be reminded of things we could do to show kindness.

Middle School Visit Days:  Middle school visits should be winding down but, please remember to email your student’s homeroom teacher with the date and time.  Letting us know ahead of time allows us to create a makeup memo of your child’s missed work. Would you please send us a reminder a day or two before the actual day?  This will help us since we have a lot of students to keep up with. We will get a makeup memo to your student the day before with work expected to be completed and returned the day after the visit.  

Tybee Island:  The fifth payment of $30.00 will be due Monday, December 17, 2018.

Bible: We will delve back into Scripture Memorization after the break. Merry Christmas and thank you for the incredible opportunity to teach Bible to your wonderful children!

F&F:   We are enjoying reading Christmas books with different settings for the current F&F unit.  The month of December would be a great time for students to read books of their choice to earn AR points even if they’ve already reached the 60 point goal.    

Spelling:  Unit 6 test was today, December 14, 2018.  

English: Our Unit 4 English test will be Tuesday, December 18, 2018.

Math: We had our test over decimals today, December 14th.

Science: We will finish our study on ecosystems. The Biome Pizza project is due Tuesday, December 18. Thursday, students will dissect owl pellets.
