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 review Unit 5. We will review word endings, clarify grammar skills, and refine our writing.
Students are able to access all Journeys' lessons and curricular materials online. I do not expect them to schlep heavy books back and forth to school. They may, however, take their books home if they need them.
This week we will work on Chapter 11, Graphs and Chapter 12, Angles.
Math curricula can also be accessed online. Students will use the same passwords for reading and math resources.
The science test covering Chapter 5, The Water Cycle and Weather will be on Friday, May 26, 2017.

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.
