We have started many new units this month in the fifth grade.
In math we have just started a new unit on multiplying a fraction by a fraction. This follows our unit on multiplying a whole number by a fraction. (Look for the post test on this in your child's backpack)
In science, we have completed our unit on phases of the moon. We have started a new squared away unit on seasons. Students are working in cooperative groups to learn information on these topics and then they take a test on each component to demonstrate mastery. If they achieve mastery, they earn a square.
In social studies, they are learning about Jamestown history from Mrs. Bernardo. In LA, they are writing paragraphs on what they have learned about Jamestown history.
We are continuing our word study work as well.
Word Study due 5/16
