Friday is Spirit Day. Students can wear spirit wear or blue/gold.

We will now be in school on President’s Day.

I will be sending out a Sign Up Genius for next week’s Valentine’s Day Party.


Here is a look at what we are up to this week:


Decimal Division Test on Tuesday; We will begin a unit on fraction addition and subtraction. We will also mix in some geometry standards.

Social Studies-

We are researching the 13 colonies and creating colony “graffiti” this week. 


From Mrs. Tieken:

We are wrapping up the first half of our study for the ACRE test.  Tonight there is flashcard homework.  We will have a test on Wednesday.  If your peep knows the 26 flashcards they have they will be fine.


Reading/Language Arts-

Reading: We started reading Hatchet today.

Grammar/Language: Idioms, simple and compound sentences

Vocabulary: Our vocabulary words will come from Hatchet. Right now, there is not a test date set. 

Writer’s Workshop: We are working on the Junior Journal writing pieces and then we will get back to our fictional narratives. 

All students must have one AR novel read by Feb. 13 and have AR test taken for a grade.  Genre assigned is fantasy/science fiction for 1st half. 2nd half will be a choice of a Newbery Award-winning book or a Newbery Honor Award-winning book.



We are completing our study guides this week and will take our first space test next week.
