In Reader's and Writer's Workshop, we are working on reviewing skills learned in fourth grade as well as establishing our routines and the students are laying the foundation for critical thinking and text analysis.
In Science, the students are investigating the Scientific Method and conducting experiments using popcorn. Ask your student about the steps of the Scientific Method!
In Math, we are beginning place value and standard and expanded form. In order to help your students reach their fullest potential, I am incorporating a Math Workshop format this year. The students will have small group time with me, work independently and do a hands on investigation each day.
Be on the lookout for information from your student about after school clubs. Mill Creek has added many new clubs this year, and transportation is provided Tuesdays and Thursdays.
In the Friday folders today, there is a lot of information about upcoming events, so please be sure to look through this information with your student. Have a wonderful weekend!
