Welcome back! We are very excited to start the new school year! It is wonderful to see both familiar faces, and several new students to grades 5 and 6. With all of the forms coming home at this time, it is very important to read them over and return back to school as soon as possible!
We will be beginning the year reading the same novel in both reading classes, Because of Mr. Terupt. This is a great book that allows students to connect with characters and witness the evolution of characters throughout the book. In writing, both classes are going to be starting a personal narrative. We will be working on expanding thoughts, adding details, and catching the readers attention, in addition to grammar and editing!
6th graders will begin the year having social studies where they will be learning about explorers and will be partaking in an exciting discovery simulation! 5th grade has the chance to start the year with science, and be the first ones to experience our new science program! Our new science program is extremely interactive and hands on, students are bound to love it! In addition to the new science program, we are also going to be using Study Island, both in our classrooms and in the computer lab with Mrs. Morelli.
