Our “End in Mind” this week:

We can use our understanding of prefixes to determine the meaning of unfamilar words.

In our reading, we will use our understaning of prefixes to learn about unfamilar words in our informational text. In the past, students have loved this prefix rap. I hope you do too!

It’s ketchup week!! Huh??

ketchup2What is a ketchup week? Well, it is really “catch up” week. LOL! It is a week when we need to do a little catch up work. Our schedule is a bit off, so we are adjusting things a bit.

Tuesday and Thursday will still be our traditional novel study day. Parents, ask your students about the novel Wonder. They are loving it!

Due to last Friday’s Grandparent’s Day activities, we will be having our reading test on Wednesday, the 9th.

Friday, we will read and respond to a text passage that covers our reading skills and several 5th grade science standards.

There will be NO reading homework this week. Use this time to read for the fun of it. Spend time reading a library book or one of the new selections you might have purchased from the book fair last week.

I hope you enjoyed your long weekend!
