It was fun seeing so many families at the PTA sponsored Family Fun Night! A big thank you goes out to all the people who helped make it happen, including everyone who sent in items for our silent auction basket, and Natalie Holloway, for organizing and putting the basket together!
This coming week is a busy one at Arrowhead. We have parent-teacher conferences mid week, and don't forget about our early out days. School is done at noon on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I look forward to seeing everyone at conferences. If you're not sure of your conference time, send me an email and I can verify your date and time.
Halloween is Tuesday! I hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween. Be careful Trick-or-Treating! Please know that, even though it's a holiday, we will still be learning, learning, learning in fifth grade. Some of the activities we do may be more fun, though :-)
What Are We Learning This Week?
We are working on a unit in Wonders that explores the question "What do good problem solvers do?" Ask your child about some of the ideas we've discussed. The literature we are looking at this week focuses on some historical documents that are important to the United States and how our founding fathers solved problems to create a foundation for our nation.
Students are finishing up their first attempts at a personal narrative. You can view your child's narrative on our Google Classroom site. The students know how to get in to view their work after it's been assessed by me!
We are continuing to work on division this week. We are working on division with double digit divisors now. We're focused on estimating and figuring out where to put the first digit in a long division problem, and we are multiplying to check our answers. We will work later this week on interpreting our remainders as well.
Students are working on their MT Tribal Nations papers. We are using Step Up to Writing strategies to organize our writing. Ask your child about his/her colored sentence strips!
Students are working with Mrs. Seab on Infection Detection in science. Ask your student what they're up to in science!
