Gettysburg…What a day!

Hopefully, you’ve already heard lots of fun stories about the great day we had in Gettysburg. We had beautiful weather, great chaperones, wonderful tour guides, learned a lot of interesting facts and saw artifacts in the museum, all while having a lot of fun! Based on the student next to me on the bus ride home, your child should be very tired:) Below are just a few shots from the day.

Mrs. Eby's 5th Grade Blog

Week of May 20th…

Hello Everyone,

This will be my last official blog for the school year. I don’t know where our year together has gone! Here’s what we will be doing to continue to stretch our brains and make them stronger!

Curriculum News:

Reading:  In reading today, the children continued presenting their American government and symbols readers’ theaters. They are doing an outstanding job of reading fluently!  Tomorrow, the remaining groups will perform and that will wrap up our last set of readers’ theaters for this year.  WOW… Our 5th graders have really grown as readers and writers this year! Their perseverance and ability to stay in a growth mindset have really paid off!!!  Wednesday, we will review the difference between summarizing and paraphrasing.  Thursday, we will preview our new robust vocabulary for our upcoming narrative nonfiction passage which is about the Lewis and Clark expedition.  On Friday, we will learn about Memorial Day.  We will work on some activities that will move this information from our working memory to our short term and then into our long term memory.

Spelling: The children received their spelling homework packet today. They know to have it completed by Thursday and to be ready to take the test on Friday.

 Math: This week in math we will continue our preview of 6th-grade math. For Monday and Tuesday, we will work on unit rates and solve some tricky word problems to represent real-world situations as unit rate. On Wednesday we will use ratio tables to represent equivalent ratios. On Thursday and Friday, we will review everything about rates and ratios we have learned so far. For the rest of the year, we will continue to preview some 6th-grade material, and review some of the more challenging skills from 5th grade. Keep up the hard work in math fifth graders!  

Reminders:

Tomorrow, we will go to the book fair in the afternoon!

School is in session this Friday, May 24th.

We don’t have school on Monday, May 27th. Happy Memorial Day!

Thursday, May 30th is our field trip to the Whitaker Science Center. If your name was pulled to be a chaperone, you received an email or phone call from me. Thank you to everyone, who volunteered to go with us.

Other News:

On behalf of the PTO, we want to thank you, parents and students, for your enthusiasm and donations to support our efforts in filling the 5th-grade summer basket. We got the most desired interest at the Spring Fling with almost 200 tickets. The students will be rewarded for their participation with a special treat day. This date will be announced.

Thank you,

Maureen Greenawalt

Have a wonderful week! Thank you for everything that you have done to support your child throughout her/his 5th-grade year!!!

Hello 2D Families!! The week ahead is such an exciting one!

Tomorrow is our field trip and we are VERY eager! Most friends had papers come back indicating that he/she will be bringing their own bagged lunch. Everything must be disposable and no glass please. If you indicated that your child will be buying a packed lunch from the cafeteria, I will have it ready in the morning. If possible, could your child please try to wear a red shirt. Each class has its own color which will make it easier for teachers and chaperones to know where our kids are at all times. We will be doing a lot of walking so wearing sneakers is recommended! Please do not send money as it will not be necessary. I am really looking forward to the day!! Your child will also be coming home with an information sheet with these details today.

Since it is “O” day, we are OVER HOMEWORK! There will be no more required math homework or spelling lists, but DO KEEP READING for the calendar. We will continue to do our reading calendars and work to meet our reading goals. Also, please check your child’s folder today for the Book Sharing assignment as well as a Collection Project (this one is optional).

Wednesday is Olympic Day! Please apply sunscreen ahead of time at home and have your child bring a plastic water bottle to school. Mr. Binkley has also asked that our class try to wear orange that day.

Since Olympic Day is now Wednesday, we can no longer wear our pajamas that day so….Thursday will be wear pajamas, bring a quilt (towel), and read outside day all in one!

Whew….must be May! So much going on! Please contact me with any questions!

If you would like to donate to our basket, please send anything related to camping in and we will be sure that PTO gets it. Ideas can include but are not limited to S’mores ingredients, camping snacks, flashlights, ponchos, picnic things, etc. The Dollar Tree may even have some things to include. Thank you for your support!

Special Reminders…

*Monday – Intermediate Parents’ Night tonight for those that have registered.

*Tuesday – Patriotic Day for “P” Day! Wear your red, white and blue in honor of Memorial Day coming up this weekend!

*Wednesday – Quilt Day for “Q” Day! Bring a blanket or beach towel to school today!

*Wednesday – Olympic Day (4th grade is in the afternoon.) Students should bring a water bottle (no glass) with their name on it to school for Olympic Day today. Mr. Binkley assigned our class purple for our color. If your child has a purple shirt, today would be a great day to wear it. Maroon would work as well!

*Thursday – Root Beer Floats for “R” Day! The 4th grade teachers will be treating the students to root beer floats today. Please let us know if your child will need an alternative treat!

*Friday – We ARE in school today! This is a snow make-up day!

Week of May 20th

Dear Families,

          Our field trip to the Lancaster Science Factory and Musser Park is on Tuesday. We are asking that all second graders bring a bagged lunch with a throw away water bottle for lunch. Bags should be labeled with name and class and should be able to be thrown away after eating. We are looking forward to a great day as we wind down our days of being second graders!

          Our Olympic Day is now on Wednesday and students should try to wear a gray shirt to support Team Kyle. Plastic water bottles labeled with names on may also come in for our “Sharpen the Saw Day.”

          Have a wonderful week and please let me know if you have any questions as our schedule is a busy one!
