In Language Arts we are reviewing all our reading skills. FSA Reading is April 12, and 13th. Please plan on having your student here for those days. Have them get a good night sleep the night before and big breakfast. We have spelling words this week. If you need an additional copy of the words you can find them below in a pdf file. It is Unit 5, Week 4 words. We are working on Tropicana Speeches in the class. Please make sure students have their materials for this in class. Each night the students will need to read for 20 minutes. Parents, please sign their reading logs for your student. This is the only way I know that they completed their homework. Students were given their homework for the week in their agendas. Homework will be posted weekly on the calendar below.
We are beginning Unit 5 in our Social Studies books. We will be learning about The American Revolution.
Thank you for sharing your precious student with me this year!
I highly encourage you to take advantage of the A.R. resources that are available to you online. A detailed letter went home giving you both user instructions as well as your child's password for AR Home Connect. Please make sure to sign up! It only takes a few minutes. It will alert you through your personal email every time your child has taken an AR test, and will inform you what they scored on that test. Your personal account also lets you know what books your child has read since they've been involved with AR. Check it out by clicking on the link below!
You can find VCS Grade5's Vocabulary and Spelling Online Resources by visiting the website Spelling City. Here, you will find all of our spelling list for the school year. On the web, students select a list by clicking on the list name. They can then complete the Spelling TeachMe activity by clicking each word on the list, select the Play A Game button to practice their words using any of VocabularySpellingCity’s free activities, or select the Spelling Test button to quiz themselves on their words and help them prepare for any upcoming tests.
