Wow, what a week!  We had a Great Valentines Party, even though it was a day late. Your students worked hard today. They took a test in spelling, vocabulary, social studies, and math. They definitely deserved the party. 

Monday is Presidents day, so there will be no school.

If you have not signed up for the Seesaw app, please do so. The students have loaded their test scores from the past week onto the sight and are excited for you to see how they are doing on their tests.

Reading/AR Goals/Reading Log

Please encourage your child to read for enjoyment. After reading a book in their reading range, make sure that they take an AR test. Each child will receive a milkshake of their choice after every 70 points earned in AR tests.

Math

Math assignments for this week are lessons Investigation 6, 61 and 62 for both grades. Assignments are randomly selected for grading. Those grades make up the Math Homework grade on report cards. Parents are encouraged to check all homework every night for correctness.

For graded homework assignments, students can redo any missed problems, turn the redo in with the original homework, and receive full credit for any problem correctly redone.

If your 5th-grade child forgot his/her math book, there is a PDF version in the Classroom Documents. Your child can find the day's lesson and do the work.

Unfortunately, the online link to the 6th-grade math textbook is no longer working. I no longer find the math book online when doing a Google search.

Science

We will be continuing the Solar System. This week's lessons centers around "Why is gravity different on other planets?"

Social Studies

We will be starting Chapter 11.  Students will write vocabulary words in their Social Studies notebooks and will be doing worksheets in class.

Religion

We are back in the book and will be studying the life of Jesus.

I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL week this week. Please remember to keep our class and our school in your prayers.

Blessings,

Mrs. Charles
