Welcome to Mrs. Albert's 5th Grade Class!
This year we will develop important skills and be introduced to interesting concepts. We will study American history and work with fractions and decimals in math. We will continue to hone our writing skills, and of course, we will read many great books. We will also deepen our understanding of the Catholic faith and reenact the Stations of the Cross at Easter.
In addition, 5th graders are responsible for leading the school in the Angelus and distributing milk.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
This week students will work in small groups to prepare two stories, based on the Great Depression, as readers' theater. One is called "West to Hope," and the other is called "Hooverville Blues."
This week we will work on Chapter 12, Angles and Chapter 13, Properties of Triangles and Four-Sided Figures.
Math curricula can be accessed online. Students will use the same passwords for reading and math resources.
Students will take the Unit 4 religion test at the end of the week. We will go through the test using a discussion format.

It is often hard for students to know how to choose a good book to read. Each year experts at the American Library Association award one book with the Newbery Medal for excellence in literature and name one or more books as Honor Books. Click on this link for the list of books from the past 95 years.
