Hi 5th Grade Families!
Welcome back! It was so great to see everyone again. I sure missed your kiddos over break. It seemed like a lot longer than two weeks!
Reading Logs
I wanted to remind you that December literacy logs were/are due today or tomorrow. The log for January went home today. If students read last week, please record that on January's log. These will count toward SOAR Club attendance on Friday.
Spelling Bee
On Friday, we will take a spelling test for the spelling bee. The top 3 spellers from each class will go to the finals on Thursday, January 18th. A long list of words to study are attached to the email sent home today, for any students would like to review ahead of time. 
SOAR Party
The SOAR party for December is this Friday, and we are playing board games together! Please have your child bring a favorite family board game to share, if possible. We will also be enjoying some salty snacks and spending some time catching up with the other classes in study hall. 
Math HW
Math homework will begin again this week on Wednesday evening. We are still in the middle of multiplying and dividing fractions.
Social Studies
In Social Studies, students have started the Revolutionary War unit. They have been learning about the events that led to the war. 
In writing, we are starting a new writing unit about research and informational writing. We are also excited to be starting a new spelling and vocabulary resource at Blue Heron called "Wordsmith." You will hear more about that soon! 
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Have a wonderful week and happy 2018!
