Science- We learned a lot about what matter is last month. This month we will learn about how matter changes. This test will be around the middle of the month. Then we will learn about energy.

5th Grade

Math- This month we are continuing our study of fractions by learning about dividing fractions. Remember that students need to know basic multiplication and division facts to help with these skills. If students have questions about homework, I am available between 7:00 and 7:40 in the mornings. 

Science- This month we will be learning about mixtures and solutions. Soon we will do an investigation about mixtures and solutions. For this investigation we need salt, flour, cornstarch, baking soda, plastic spoons, plastic cups, and dried beans. If you would like to donate any of these items, just send them in to Mrs. Garton's classroom. 

Religion- We just finished another great Catholic Schools Week!! This month we will be focusing forgiveness and the sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation
