It is hard to believe that we have managed to be in school for 2 months already! Things are going great in 5th grade, and the kids are doing a really nice job handling all of the COVID-19 changes. November is going to be a very busy month! We have conferences coming up next Thursday and Friday, so they are half days for students. Later in November is also the Thanksgiving holiday, which means an early release day on Wednesday, and no school for students on Thursday or Friday. The end of November also marks the end of the first trimester!
In math, students have been learning to divide by two digit divisors! This is a hard concept and they are doing a great job! In reading, we have finished reading the Lemonade War, and now are reading Because of Mr. Terupt. So far the class loves this book! For social studies, we have been learning about Native American tribes across the United States. Soon we are going to be switching to science where our first unit is going to be on the Earth and Moon.
