This week we have been learning:
In Math, then we will begin our SOL review of all 5th grade content. We will be reviewing this week elapsed time, measuring & classifying angles and triangles, circles, metric measurements, decimal computation, computation & word problems, and perimeter, area, and volume.
In Reading, our mini lessons this week will focus on test preparations for different types of texts (informative, fable, announcements, and news articles). Our guided reading groups will be focused on working on each groups specific needs to prepare for the reading SOL test.
In Writing, our mini lessons this week will focus on hyphens.
In Science, we will be reviewing sun/moon/Earth and the solar system from 4th grade. We will have a quiz on this on Thursday, May 2nd. Our 4th race card quiz will be on Tuesday, April 30th. The students get to borrow these for the week to prepare for their quiz on this 5th grade science review topic. The race cards must be returned on the quiz day. The students who earn a score of 80% or greater are rewarded with an additional 30 minutes of recess. We will be doing 7 review units between now & our science SOL test in May.
