5th Grade Weekly Update for Week of April 15th

Our standardized testing begins on Monday! Testing will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. We want to make sure that students have a good night of rest and time to eat a healthy breakfast; therefore, he or she may arrive at 8:15 a.m. and not be considered tardy. Our doors will still open at 7:45 a.m. for families who still need to drop off at our regularly scheduled time. Also, snack will be provided by our parent volunteers each day of testing; however, your child is welcome to bring his or her own snack if so desired. It’s always a good idea to bring a light sweater or sweatshirt to keep at their desk the week of testing. The rooms seem cool with less moving bodies!

ELA: On Tuesday afternoon, students will take place in our third Tiger Rising discussion and receive the assignment for the fourth discussion that will take place on Monday, April 22nd. For our discussion Tuesday, they should be prepared with the figurative language hunt, the journal entry, and they should be prepared with their answers to the discussion questions by reviewing the list. Later on in the week, students will pick their poems to recite for our Poetry Coffeehouse at the end of the year!

Science: This week is the perfect week for a science enrichment activity. Students will participate in a bovine eye dissection! This is an optional activity that previous students have always looked forward to!
