I will frequently post our class updates, activities, pictures, and homework tips on our classroom's webpage.
We have been learning about the different systems of the human body. Our class has been using the Smart Board with many of the lessons...click HERE for a website that the kids enjoyed! It gives great information about all of the systems!
Family Question for the week...
Once a week I will post a new Math problem that you and your child can solve together. It is a great way for the family to work on Problem Solving Techniques. Problem Solving is very important in 5th Grade Math! If you work out a problem please sign the paper (with the completed answer) and send it back to school with your child. Each completed problem is worth extra credit in Math!!!
Question of the week:
Suppose today is Tuesday. What day of the week will it be 100 days from now?
On Friday, October 2nd we will be taking a field trip to the Kansas Learning Center for Health in Halstead. We will leave at 8:15 am and return back to school at 1:30 pm. We will not be back in time for a school lunch, so please send a sack lunch and drink with your child. I have also sent home a permission slip to be signed and returned. This will be a 3 Strikes Field Trip (below is more information about 3 Strikes.)
3 Strikes Rule
The 3 Strikes Rule:
Your child will participate in the 3 Strikes Rule before each field trip. It is enforced to help students turn in homework on time and treat others respectfully. If a student turns in an incomplete assignment or late assignment, it will be recorded as a strike. If a child is disrespectful to another child or adult that would be a strike. If a student receives 3 Strikes before the field trip, they will not be able to attend the field trip.
I WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL PARENTS FOR ATTENDING PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES. I AM VERY LUCKY TO HAVE SUCH A GREAT CLASS!
Cosmosphere Field Trip
We are going to be going on a GREAT field trip to the Kansas Cosmosphere on Friday, December 11th. We are all very excited! Since this is an all day field trip we will be eating lunch at McDonalds! Lunch money & gift shop money can be brought with them the day of the field trip (Friday). If you would like your child to have a school sack lunch the school will also provide a lunch. I will be taking pictures and posting them when we get back. This is a 3 Strikes Field Trip, please stress the importance of turning in assignments on time and studying for tests/quizzes.
