Welcome Back to the second half of Fifth Grade!
I hope everyone had a holiday filled with family, friends, fun, and relaxation!
During the 3rd six weeks and now into the 4th, we are “rockin’ and rollin’” in our study of the Earth and its surface. We have learned how the surface of the earth changes slowly through weathering, erosion, and deposition. We will now learn how sedimentary rock is formed. Your student has learned the “Erosion Rap”. Ask him/her to perform it for you.
We will continue our study of the Earth with learning about our natural resources and how important they are to our survival on our wonderful planet.
Soon, we will rocket into space as we begin our study of the sun, earth, and moon. We will study the characteristics of each and make a venn diagram to compare and contrast.
During Reading this six weeks we are continuing our study of Informational Text(Nonfiction). We will work on reading and taking notes on what we are learning beside each paragraph, otherwise known as making annotations. We will also be working on reading two similar passages and working to compare and contrast them to deepen our understanding of vocabulary and more rigorous topics.
