October News from 5M

class_2015-16Can you believe it is October already and we have been in school for a month.  I say that every year but I am still always surprised at how fast the time goes.  We have accomplished many things such as starting Lesson 4 in Spelling.  Our third chapter in Religion.  We have done 3 experiments in Science and will be finishing up the first chapter about the Scientific Method.  The students have been writing up a storm in English, working on place value in Math and in Social Studies they have been learning about the regions of the United States.

During the month we will cover Lessons 4, 5, Review ( 1,2, 3, 4, and 5), 6 and 7 in Spelling.  Don't forget to practice on spellingcity.com.  The students will take most of their test on the iPads on Fridays.  Lesson 4 will be on Wednesday due to a short week.

Religion will highlight an overview of the 7 Sacraments and we will do a chapter about vocations.  We will do this the week before Vocation Day which is October 20.  Please join us for Mass that day as 5M will be leading the Mass at 9:15am.

In Science we will be starting the chapter on Classfying Organisms.  The will learn how and why scientists put organisms into a particular group. We will end this unit with a very "sweet" activity involving identifying unusual items.

October's Book report is Mystery.  The directions will go home the first week of October.

Some important dates to keep in mind as the month goes on:

It is going to be a very busy month for the students.  They are still getting used to their routines and trying to remember all they need to do.  I think they have been doing a great job:)
