December News in 5V

It is hard to believe that we are already in December! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had a wonderful month filled with completing our “How To” articles as well as hearing all of the great Historical Fiction book reports. Here is a look at what will be happening in December:

English- In 5th and 6th grade English the students will be learning their next chapter in grammar, which is Chapter 3: Adjectives. The students will not only further their understanding of what an adjective is but also further their learning of the role of adjectives in sentences. As we continue to learn about the different parts of speech, the students will be expected to correctly use and identify them in everything that they write. The students will also begin their next writing piece, which is creating a Christmas Story using vocabulary words from their Vocabulary Workshop workbooks. It is extremely important for the students to not only continue to build their vocabulary but also understand how to use these words in their writing.

Spelling- We will work on Lessons 11, 12, 13, and 14. The students have been doing a great job using the iPads for their spelling tests and I continue to encourage the students to use Spellingcity.com at home as a studying tool to prepare for our weekly tests.

Reading- Our book report theme this month is Poetry. The students will be read a poetry book and pick their favorite poem to use to create a poetry panel for our class “Poetry Quilt.” This project will be completed in class.

Religion- We will continue to talk about the season of Advent and Christmas as well as continuing learning about the sacraments.
