3/17/23 News From Fifth

Hello 5th grade parents and families,

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Here is a snapshot of what we’ve been working on in fifth grade:

Social Studies: To celebrate National Women’s Month, students will be researching a historical figure and her contributions to history.

Science: Our Ecosystems unit concluded with a unit test. We now move on to Ecosystems and Energy, in which students will learn the following: What Are Roles of Organisms in Ecosystems? How Does Energy Move Through Ecosystems? What Roles Do Decomposers Play?​

Reading: We are hard at work deep-diving into nonfiction texts. Students are practicing summarizing, identifying main ideas, supporting main ideas with key details, studying types of nonfiction texts, describing the benefit of different nonfiction text features, identifying authors’ purposes, sequencing events, etc.

Religion: We’ve begun our Growing with God curriculum by identifying what is most important in our lives and discussing how these things help us better understand each other. We will also continue to work toward the Archdiocese priority standards in religion, including a study of Ecumenism and interreligious dialogue.

Math: We are wrapping up adding and subtracting decimals, and moving on to multiplying decimals. After that, dividing decimals!

Other exciting information: Our D.A.R.E program concludes with a graduation ceremony March 23 from 9-10 AM.

Dining for Dollars at Kenny’s on Tuesday, March 21st to support our spring musical!

Thank you for all your support at home. It’s a great day to be a Cardinal!
