Dear fifth grade students and parents,
It's hard to believe that we are almost half way through fourth quarter already, and that the end of the school year is rapidly approaching! This will be a busy month in fifth grade as students begin preparing for the upcoming SOLs. During fourth 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. The will also review for the upcoming reading SOL. In math, the students will finish learning about measurement and review for the upcoming math SOL. During social studies the students will learn about the Rocky Mountain and Pacific regions which make up the western part of the United States. For science the students will finish learning about atoms and elements and will learn all about light and sound before reviewing for the science SOL.
