5th Grade

What we are doing the week of April 23 - 27, 2018

Students will complete their Monday journal entry on Monday and share it.  We will compete our DEUILI warm-ups and complete our DGP (Daily Grammar Practice) activity, which focuses parts of speech, parts of a sentence, and various language mechanics.  We will continue practicing writing on-demands to help prepare us for KPREP and self-assess the pieces we write.  No spelling this week!

This week we will be learning about measurement conversions.

Social Studies
This week we are working on extended responses for KPREP and learning about specific events during the War for Independence.

In science, we are continuing our study of ecosystems. We will have a quiz this Thursday over the most recent foldable.

This week in reading we will be reviewing the reading standards for informational texts and practice answering short answer questions and extended responses.
