Fifth Grade Overview
February 8, 2019
Valentine Party: On Wednesday, February 13th, we will celebrate Valentine’s Day. Students may bring valentines for their entire homeroom or the entire grade. Please no valentines for just one or two people. We will be going to the Little Theater that morning to hear a World War I presentation. When we return to school we will have a “Make Your Own Sundae” bar after lunch and then return upstairs for a “Minute to Win It” party.
Graduation Information: May 23, 2019, at 10:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary. The ceremony lasts about an hour and there will be a reception afterwards. Fifth graders are dismissed after the reception. Students will receive a Bible at graduation, just in case you were thinking of buying them one. Graduation Dress Requirements: girls are required to wear a white dress for graduation. It should be appropriate length (no more than 2” above the knee) and not have spaghetti straps. I know it’s too early to start looking for it, but thought I would let you know ahead of time. Boys will wear white long-sleeved dress shirts with the BBS tie and khaki pants. No flip-flops for anyone.
Tybee Island: The last payment of $30.00 is due February 22, 2019. If you would like the balance due for your child, please email Mrs. Ledbetter with that request. The total amount to be paid is $250.00. ALL BALANCES MUST BE PAID IN FULL BY FEBRUARY 22, 2019.
Bible: Our next verse test for 5B is on Tuesday, February 19, and for 5A on Wednesday, February 20. It will cover, “... whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:16b-17 (ESV)
F&F: There will not be a vocabulary test or skills test on Fact and Opinion, but there will be a performance test on Friday, March 1, 2019.
Spelling: Unit 10 test will be on Wednesday, February 13, 2019. If your child is going to miss school due to vacation, please let me know so they can schedule a time to take this test before they go.
English: We will continue work with Unit 6: Pronouns. In this unit, students are learning the difference between subject pronouns, object pronouns, and possessive pronouns. We’ll also incorporate these into our writing.
Math: We are ready to start adding and subtracting fractions with like and unlike denominators.
Social Studies: Students will identify the causes of World War I and examine why the United States entered the war. Students have the requirements of the World War I project in their Tuesday folders.
Music: Parents, please continue to encourage your students to bring their recorders on either Day 2 or 4, depending on which day they have music. I am allowing them one grace day if they forget, but after that, the student will receive a mark due to not being prepared for class. I am super proud at how quickly most of the students are catching on to the recorder. Encourage them to keep up the good work!
