Welcome back, and thanks for checking in this week!


Notes for the week...

** This Friday we'll be having a holiday celebration including a movie and hot chocolate and lunch at 12:30 featuring some traditional food from countries such as Mexico, Costa Rica, Bosnia, Italy, and Honduras.  If you would like to know what to contribute, please check the 5th grade parents Whatsapp chat or check the sign-up sheet I sent to each student's Google Doc account! Students may bring or wear pajamas that day (appropriate for the weather) and bring pillows or stuffed animals to get comfy while we watch our holiday movie.

This week in class...

Language Arts
This week we'll be finishing up The Egypt Game and having our final discussions about the novel.  We'll also be studying the subjects and objects of sentences as well as using subject pronouns and object pronouns correctly.  In addition, students will have spelling/vocabulary words this week which highlight the differences between adjectives and adverbs.  One Spelling City assignment will be due on Tuesday and the rest on Friday.  

Math
We'll continue practicing long division with 2-digit divisors this week along with solving multi-step word problems.  We'll also be reviewing what we've learned so far in Chapter 4, and will be doing a semester review as well.

December 4-8

Welcome back, and thanks for checking in this week!
It's a difficult time, but when we return to classes on Wednesday for our modified schedule, we'll be doing our best to catch up!



Our schedule at school for the time being will be the following:


This week in class:

Language Arts
This week we'll be doing some nonfiction reading relating to our ecosystems unit in order to learn more about the organisms in our ecosystem models.  We'll also be continuing with the novel The Egypt Game and recording our responses in Google Docs.  Students will also be contributing to a discussion document in which they add their own thoughts and reactions and comment on the observations of others.  Students may need to be reading at home in order to complete this novel on time.

Math
In math, we'll be working more with division using 2-digit divisors, including estimation and using the standard algorithm.  Students received instructions by email about uploading their "Wolves Teaching Wolves" video in Google Drive and sharing it with Ms. Maria Fernanda.  They need to be sure to do this promptly, as this will be part of their math grade.
Science
In Science this week, we'll be focusing on creating our ecosystem models.  We'll also be talking about
photosynthesis and the elements plants need in order to survive.

All the best,
<3 Ms. Amy

November 27-December 1

Welcome back to another great week in Discovery Grade 5!


Notes for the week:

** UPDATE
Since Discovery School will be closed on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, I ask that students complete the following activities at home, all of which will be due on Monday morning.

1. Egypt Game (check your student email for an electronic copy you can read on your device): Read Chapters 15 (The Ceremony for the Dead) and 16 (The Oracle of Thoth).  Create a Google Doc with your name and "Egypt Game" in the title and share it with me.  Then write a 3-sentence summary of each chapter as you read it.

2. Spelling City: Complete your Spelling City activities.

3. Spanish: Finish Words of the Week sentences and put them in Engrade.

4. Math (EXTRA CREDIT--NOT REQUIRED): Complete 20 questions for each of the Math IXL skills D.3  and V.1.  You can choose to do more than 20 questions for each one if you choose, but you are only required to do 20 to receive extra credit.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


** FIELD TRIP ANNOUNCEMENT: 
An opportunity has arisen for our 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th grade students to see a matinee of the Wonder on Thursday, November 30.  This is a movie inspired by the book that was read to students in 4th grade, a story which contains important lessons about acceptance, repect, tolerance, and kindness.

A permission slip with all pertinent information will be sent home on Tuesday, and we are asking the slips and the money to be returned on Wednesday, as we have to buy the tickets Wednesday afternoon. This special showing offered to schools has been organized by Casa David

In addition, we are asking for 4 fifth grade parents to accompany us. Chaperones will need to pay the ticket price for entrance, 140 lps., which includes the ticket, popcorn, and a drink.


** NPH GIVING TREE
Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) is an international organization that takes in abandoned and orphaned children, providing a home and education. Here in Honduras, the NPH organization provides for over 500 children in at large ranch near La Venta and home in Tegucigalpa for severely handicapped children. While many children at the ranch have aunts, uncles, or grandparents that come to visit them and can provide some Christmas gifts, some children at a ranch have no family to visit. It is these children, whom we would like to provide for this Christmas. 

In the secondary building, second floor, an NPH Giving Tree bulletin board will be set up. If you wish to participate, choose a paper tree that has a child’s information about his/her size for shoes and socks. Please note that the shoes most in demand are athletic shoes in which students can run and play!

Purchase the new items and return them to Mrs. Agurcia’s Room (Secondary Building, Rm. 7) by Tuesday, December 5th, unwrapped, with the tree tag taped to it. Thank you for giving this Christmas!

If more information about NPH’s work in Honduras, please visit http://www.nph-honduras.org/


** USED TOY COLLECTION
If you have gently used toys at home that your children no longer play with, please consider sending them to school by Friday, December 8.  Thanks to Ms. Carolina Villareal, we will send these toys to places which serve children in need.  The Christmas season is about so much more than receiving presents, and we would like for our students to experience the feeling of spreading happiness!  

** LAST CALL! We still need your 2-liter soda bottles so that we can begin building our ecosystems on Friday!


This week in class:

Language Arts
In Language Arts this week, we'll continue studying the mystery novel The Egypt Game by analyzing the characters and plot. We'll also be studying the last of our irregular verbs.  Students now have accounts with Spelling City, and will be using this website to practice their words this week.  One Spelling City assignment will be due on Wednesday, and the other two on Friday when we will have our quiz. 

Our TED Talks were a great success, and I am so proud of all of their hard work!  


Math
This week we'll begin the next unit: Dividing with 2-Digit Divisors.  We'll begin by dividing by multiples of 10, 100, and 1000.  Then we'll move on to estimating quotients with 2-digit divisors, and we'll apply what we are learning in real-world problem-solving situations.

Science
This week we'll be investigating what plants need by designing an experiment.  We'll also investigate invasive species and how they affect an ecosystem.  Then, at the end of the week, we'll begin setting up our eco-columns with the two-liter bottles we have been collecting.
  

Thanks so much for checking back in with us this week! It's going to be a great one!

This week in class:

Language Arts
In Language Arts this week, we'll be focusing on identifying pronouns and using them correctly.  We'll also begin a project in which students will be preparing a persuasive oral presentation, similar to a TED Talk, related to one of the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals.  We'll be looking in depth at the goals and their purposes so that students can choose a goal that they are interested in.

October 2-3

Feliz Feriado Morazánico!  Have a lovely vacation this week!



Notes for the short week:

** Please note! Although this week is only 2 days due to the October holidays, these two days will continue as regular school days and it is important that students attend.  If you have already contacted me regarding your child being absent during this time, I will make arrangements, however please do not consider these days as "optional" as we will be covering new material and continuing class as usual.  Thank you!

** Due to MAP testing, the computer lab will be unavailable for the next two weeks.  Since we are in the middle of our Discovery Geographic project, I am asking students to bring in their devices for the next couple of weeks so that we may continue to work.  Devices will need to be able to access Google Drive and edit Google Docs, both of which may need apps to be installed.  The apps are free, and will be very helpful for students when they are unable to access the computer lab.  Thanks for your collaboration!


This week in class:

Language Arts
We will be using our Language Arts time these next couple days to finish publishing our "Discovery Geographic" articles.  We will also be taking a close look at the features of nonfiction text (bold print, maps, charts, etc.) and learning to annotate nonfiction text to help us better understand what we are reading.

Math
In math, we will continue with multiplying decimals.

Science
We will continue comparing plant and animal cells, and we'll have the chance to use slide viewers to see cells up close and personal!

Thanks so much for checking back in with us this week! Have a wonderful holiday!

September 25-29

Welcome back to another week in Discovery Grade 5!



Notes for the week:

** Please note! Although next week is only 2 days due to the October holidays, these two days will continue as regular school days and it is important that students attend.  If you have already contacted me regarding your child being absent during this time, I will make arrangements, however please do not consider these days as "optional" as we will be covering new material and continuing class as usual.  Thank you!

** This Friday, September 29, will be an early dismissal at 11:45 to allow for teacher professional
development.

** This week, MAP testing will continue.  Fifth graders' tests are scheduled as follows:

READING - Monday, 9/25, 1:15-2:30
LANGUAGE USAGE- Thursday, 9/28, 8:30-9:45

** Due to MAP testing, the computer lab will be unavailable for the next two weeks.  Since we are in the middle of our Discovery Geographic project, I am asking students to bring in their devices for the next couple of weeks so that we may continue to work.  Devices will need to be able to access Google Drive and edit Google Docs, both of which may need apps to be installed.  The apps are free, and will be very helpful for students when they are unable to access the computer lab.  Thanks for your collaboration!


This week in class:

Language Arts
Last week we finished reading Bridge to Terabithia and had a wonderful, thoughtful discussion about the important themes in the novel.  Students responded well to this book and are becoming masters at class discussions!  Students received their discussion grades on Friday.  This week we will be working on reading and annotating nonfiction articles as well as practicing strategies for taking notes. 

In Writing, we'll continue working on using the notes we have taken and research we have done to create our first drafts of our "Discovery Geographic" articles.  Please see the note above regarding bringing devices for this, since we will not have access to the computer lab for the next couple of weeks during MAP testing.

In Spelling and Language, we'll be discussing and practicing the use of singular and plural possessive nouns, along with the proper usage of apostrophes. (Please excuse the repetition from last week... I accidentally posted the wrong activity!)

Math
Ms. Maria Fernanda will be back with us this week to work on multiplication patterns in decimals as well as using the standard algorithm to solve multi-digit multiplication problems involving decimals. We enjoyed being in charge of activity stations with our 4th-grade math buddies last Friday!

This week, students will begin to have nightly math facts homework using Xtramath.org.  This program has proven to be very effective in the past with helping students improve the speed and accuracy of their multiplication and division tables, as long as students use it regularly!  It should only take 5-10 minutes each evening. All students should have their log-in information noted in a safe place, along with my email address, which they may need to log in.  Students will be expected to complete their Xtramath lesson every night, Monday through Thursday, unless we have been able to complete it at school.

Science
This week we will continue sharpening our observation skills as we look in depth at plant and animal
cells.  We'll be using the secondary science lab on Wednesday to practice using microscopes.

Thanks so much for checking back in with us this week! 
💜 Ms. Amy
