We have another busy week in 5th grade! Our 4th and 5th Grade Music Show is on Monday, 4/16! Students will be performing in the morning for the whole school and in the evening for family and friends! Your child should report to their homeroom at 6:30 and you can find your seats for the big show starting at 7:00! Thank you to the parents who have volunteered to help with costumes behind the scenes! The Spring MAP Tests will be next week! The Reading MAP Test will be on Tuesday, 4/17 from 10:40-12:10 and the Math MAP Test will be on Friday, 4/20 from 9:10-10:40!

Classroom Community Updates
As always, in between all of those special events we will be squeezing in lots of learning! In Math, we finished up Chapter 8 which focused on understanding place value up to the thousandths place. We will jump into Chapter 9 by focusing on how to use decimals up to the thousandths place in multiple operations. In Reading, we just finished up our Poetry Unit with a Celebration of Learning. Our final unit is focusing on using reading skills for research as we learn about human impact on ecosystems. In Writing and Reading, students will continue to read articles and discuss them with their Pen Pals from all over the world. In addition to writing to our pen pals, students are continuing to build their creative writing skills during Writing time.
