Wow! We are in full swing in 5M! As we settle into life as 5th graders, we have been able to create an awesome classroom community! I have loved getting know each of your students and can't wait to see where this year takes them!
In ELA we are working with different passages to practice our fluency and expression when reading aloud as well as digging deeper into genres like dramas. In spelling we have worked on short vowel sounds and long "a" and long "e." Grammar has been a review of parts and types of sentences.
In Social Studies, we are learning about early American civilizations including the Native American groups that settled across the United States. Next up is the Age of Exploration and all the various explorers! We have been working with Weekly Readers each week to supplement our social studies curriculum. These take the form of a newspaper with articles and the activities for the students to read and do.
If you would like to donate to our classroom we could still use the following items:
