Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the 5th
Grade. This is an exciting new year
for all. As you are aware 5th
grade students will be provided with IPad’s this year. Although we still have our standard text
books, IPad will be used to enhance learning.
Homework will consist of: Spelling
City, Go Math, math worksheet, and reading. Go Math is also assessable online. This is a wonderful website, students can print off homework (if left
at school), watch videos, etc. Spelling
City is assigned to Reading groups, and spelling list will be posted every
Monday. Homework is usually assigned Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Incomplete class work will be sent
home and must be completed by the start of the following day. If work is not completed student will stay
in for recess to finish. I strongly
recommend Math and Spelling should be practiced daily.
Projects will be assigned
quarterly. These projects will vary,
but are not optional. Students will
complete a science project this year based on the YES Fair standards. You should receive information about the
YES Fair and its requirements in December.
Snacks are encouraged. Please
provide healthy snacks and water. Water bottles are encouraged. If your child
has a food allergy or any allergies, please let me know.
Attached you will find our class
schedule and specials.
If you have any questions, please
email me firstname.lastname@example.org
