    Dear Fifth Grade Parents,

    We will be doing mid-year testing this week and some of next week. There's no math homework tonight. Students will be learning about foreshadowing and inferencing in reading, poetry in writing and dividing fractions in math.

    Winter break starts December 21st and we return January 8th, 2020. We will watch the movie Matilda on the 20th-- I already have the parent forms.


    Reading instructions: Students are to read 25 minutes daily and choose two activities per week and write 3-5 sentences on a sheet of paper to hand in on Fridays or the last day of the week. 


    Due Tuesday: math homework page none

    Due Wednesday: math remembering  71

    Due Thursday: math homework page 72

    Due Friday: math remembering page 74
