Tests, Quizzes and Presentations:

Curriculum Update and Outline for the month of May

 

Language Arts: Literature/ Reading: PAY IT FORWARD YOUNG READER’S EDITION

We are wrapping up Pay it Forward. Quizzes weekly.

Final Project is PowerPoint/ Google Slides based and will apply skills learned and developed in class and in technology. (Project post- Spring Break). 

 

Language Arts: Writing: Poetry

In Writing, we are beginning our poetry unit and are focusing on the different applications, formation and presentation of poetry. 5th graders will be learning about different forms of poetry, and will be writing their own poetry. They will also be collaborating with the 7th graders to present, share and deliver poetry, both self- created and discovered through various mediums.

 

Language Arts: Spelling and Vocabulary:

  • Week of 5/4: This is a Vocab Week: Lesson 17.
  • Week of 5/11: This is a Spelling Week: Lesson 16
  • Week of 5/18: This is a Vocab Week: Lesson 18.

 

History/ Social Studies: EXPLORATION AND COLONIZATION! 

In history we are exploring the impacts of the ancient cultures in South and Central America and their colonization. We are moving North, focusing on the colonization done by Spain and explorers from various countries, and will be looking at the Triangle Trade Routes, the impact of slave trade and slavery, and the eventual colonization of the east coast, of what is now the US/ Canada– forming the “13 Original Colonies” and beyond. We have explored the impact of Spain on the formation of the Americas, and will be making connections between Colonial Research Projects and the New England Colonies. We will be focusing on the impact of slavery and will be leading us back to our StoryPath unit from September and October on the Revolutionary War.

 

 

Science: Earth and Sun!

 

 

Math: Area! and Decimals (Ch. 6 and 8)

 We are concluding our focus on Area with rectangles and triangles and have spent the past few days making our triangles and rectangles come to life, making real-time models in the classroom and outside on the playground. Students have been able to apply their knowledge and have a deeper understanding of area, triangles, and rectangles.

Next up, we are entering Book B and will be focusing on Decimals!

Religion: Faith in Action

We are the hands and feet of Christ. Students will be focusing on the Catholic Social Teaching (CST), in depth, for the month of May. Each week we will be focusing on a different area, and will be applying the CST to real-world, relatable situations.

 

Band: Band is on Wednesday and Friday. Miss McKamey said the kids sound awesome! Keep up the practicing and hard work! Please be aware of changing dates and other dates in which students will need their instruments, as some upcoming practices are also combined band days with the School Band (6th-8th grade).

 

Spanish: Students typically are assigned homework on Mondays. It is due (usually) on Friday. Students are encouraged to visit Rockalingua and login using the login information that they should have written in their notebooks.
