Hello, and welcome to Mrs. Peter's 5th grade site! You'll find information here on a regular basis regarding our classroom 'goings-on.' I'll post information about special dates or events, and I'll give you an idea of what we are working on at school (does anyone else's children say "I don't know" when asked what they did at school today?)
Tuesday-Friday, September 4-7: NWEA testing in the morning. Please make sure your child gets a good rest and a good breakfast! Send a healthy snack. Give them a high-5 on the way out the door, remind them to do their best...You've GOT this!
Thursday, September 6: Back to School Night at Arrowhead. I'll be giving two presentations: one at 6:00 and one at 6:30. I'll have volunteer sign up sheets and you'll be able to get a peek at some of the work your child has been doing!
Wednesday, September 19: Picture Day!
We are working on whole number and decimal place value from millions all the way down to thousandths. We're looking at the relationship between adjacent place values, and we are discussing properties of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
English Language Arts (ELA)
We have been reading the novel Maniac Magee and delving into ideas such as theme, characterization, and how setting, including the aspect of circumstance, affects a story.
The students are working with Mrs. Eagle in science this year. They've discussed ecosystems, and they're learning how plants get the resources they need from air and water.
We have started off the year learning about maps: latitude, longitude, physical features, and a review of the continents and oceans. We will begin our study of Montana Native American tribes soon.
