During the second marking period, we will spend our time using the notebooks to tackle working with text features and structures of nonfiction. Also, we will be building an informational article which reflects these activities.  Once completed, we will then start our unit on the comparative literary essay which requires us to form an opinion about two short stories and defend a thesis statement using text evidence and our own personal thoughts.  As usual throughout the marking period, we should be reading 20-30 minutes daily at home while keeping track of our progress on the reading logs provided to us as well as to be making two or more writing entries per week in our notebooks.

Room 5 will start the second marking period with social studies.  In chapter 2, they will be exploring the culture and history of the Native Americans. Notes are taken in class, definitions are kept in the notebook, and study guides are offered to help prepare for the test.  Room 6 will get their chance to experience the fun towards the middle of the marking period.


The school year went fast!  I would like to congratulate all my 5th graders for working very hard this year in literacy and social studies.  We read a lot of good books, practiced many skills, wrote numerous essays across several genres, and discovered interesting historical facts.  We have a lot to feel good about. Please take the time over the summer to continue exercising your skills by relaxing with a few cool books of your choice.  Have a wonderful summer vacation and best of luck as you enter middle school!
