Tonight's Homework

Hi Everyone,

For some reason the homework page of my blog has been unresponsive the last couple of days.  I've been unable to post to it and save what I am writing.  So here is Thursday night's homework.  I'll continue to post on this page until I've got the homework page issue resolved.  You can still access a record for the previous nights' homework assignments on the homework page.

ELA- 30 minutes of independent reading per night
Math- Reteaching Topic 1 - Pages 49-50
Social Studies/ Tech Integration- Find that Land form due tomorrow
Art- Write down 3 things we could do that are related to our theme

Thank You!

Dear Parents,

I enjoyed meeting so many of you last night.  For those of you who were unable to come, I have a blue pocket folder with log in information for you. I will send these folders home on Monday.  The login codes that I am providing will give you and your child the opportunity to access many engaging learning activities directly linked to our 5th grade academic curriculum.  Located on my blog are also detailed instructions for setting up student home accounts.  Simply click on the tab at the top of the page to get those instructions.

Last night I spoke a little bit about how the Fifth Grade Team is integrating technology into the science and social studies curriculum.  Here are a few pictures of students working with the iPad app Google Earth.  They are locating landmarks around the world and creating sketches of them.

Sonia visits the Great Basin!

Camp Bournedale and Camp Foxy!

This is a reminder to all parents and students about tomorrow.  Students going to Camp Bournedale are reporting to the Fox Hill Parking Lot at 8:30 am.  Students going to Camp Bournedale DO NOT take the bus to school.

Students staying for Camp Foxy will report to my classroom- Room 12.  A letter about Camp Foxy was sent home today to those students not attending Bournedale.  Students staying for Camp Foxy will arrive at school and be dismissed like any regular school day.

Welcome Back! Please sign up for a parent conference.

Hello Parents,

I'm looking forward to working with you and your child this school year.  On the first day of school I will send home a Parent Conference sign up sheet that will be located in your child's Homework Folder.  I would like the chance to meet so that you can tell me about your child as a person and a learner.  Conferences will begin on Friday, September 9th.  If none of the times on the conference sheet work for you please let me know.  There is also the option to do a phone conference if you find it too difficult to meet in person.

See you soon!
