Dear fifth grade students and parents,
It's hard to believe that the holidays have passed and we are almost through another quarter. I hope everyone enjoyed the winter break and that you were able to enjoy some quality time with family and friends. During second quarter in language arts the students will continue to work on their reading and comprehension skills, practice with the various steps of the writing process to help strengthen the composition of their writing, and continue building their vocabulary through our word study units. They will also continue practicing writing multi-paragraph essays using the steps of the writing process. In math, the students will finish learning decimal and fraction operations, how to calculate elapsed time, and all about determining probability. During Social Studies the students will finish learning about the southeast region of the United States and begin learning about the midwest region. For science the students will begin learning about cells and classification of living organisms.
