Spelling
SPELLING

With our Spelling program, students will receive a spelling handout on Monday to be completed by Friday every week.  We will review the skills that are the week’s focus in class. Students will take their Spelling TEST every Fridayalong with a Skills & Proofreading Check Test.


Independent reading
INDEPENDENT READING

  • Students have opportunities to independently read every day in class. I also encourage students to read at least 20 minutes every evening.

  • In addition to AR points & quizzes, I also provide class activities & journaling that pertains to a book a student is reading.

  • For Trimester 1- every student has an individual goal to reach for AR points. Half of their goal points will need to be informational text (nonfiction).


Ixl for math
IXL FOR MATH

  • IXL supports student learning in mathematics.

  • It enables students to practice math standards they are struggling with.

  • It enables students to practice higher level math concepts they might be ready for.

  • Reports provide teachers & parents information on how students are progressing.

  • IXL can be accessed at school and home or wherever you have internet access @ixl.com


Ixl expectations
IXL Expectations

Focused math standards are assigned weekly. In addition, some students might be assigned to focus on their areas of concern, too.

Students are asked to spend at least 1 hour (60 points) per week on IXL. The week begins on Monday and runs through Sunday. I check progress every Monday morning.


Homework
HOMEWORK

Homework will be given Monday through Thursday; Friday only if student has incomplete, make-up or late work.  Homework is given to ensure your child understands what was taught in class and allows the student to practice the skills learned.  This independent practice is essential to learning the concept and will also teach responsibility.  I will NOT send work home “just because.”  Your child will have approximately 1½ hours of homework nightly which includes independent reading time & IXL math practice.


Missed work due to absences family vacations
MISSED WORK DUE TO ABSENCES/FAMILY VACATIONS

When your child is absent from school it is very important to keep in mind that much of what we do in class cannot be made up because of whole group instruction, discussions and activities that are not paper & pencil. Make-up work will be assigned, but because of the nature of several lessons it may not be directly retaught. When your child returns from an absence he/she will need to meet with me to collect any handouts, assignments, or letters that need to be taken home. I would prefer to have a students make-up missed tests or quizzes before or after school.


5 th grade code of conduct classroom rules
5th Grade Code of Conduct Classroom Rules:

•  Respect others in actions and words at all

times.

•  Be responsible for your actions.

•  Try your very best.

•  Be prepared to learn.

•  Make good choices.

•  Listen carefully and follow directions.

•  Turn in all homework/assignments on time.

•  Follow all school rules.


Snacks
SNACKS

We will have an assigned snack time daily. When students are hungry they are not able to focus on their schoolwork, so snacking is important. I have three rules about snacks: They must be healthy, not disruptive, and in order for students to share they must have enough for the whole class. Some good ideas for snacks are fruit, crackers and granola bars. Soda and candy are not allowed for a snack. It is a good idea, especially during the warmer times of the school year for students to have a leak proof water bottle to keep at their desk.


Scholastic book clubs
SCHOLASTIC BOOK CLUBS

The 1st Wednesday of every month I will send home scholastic book club order forms in your child’s Wednesday folder.  If you are interested in purchasing any of the items, you can submit a check made out to Scholastic Book Clubs for any and all orders from the different clubs or you can submit an order online at www.scholastic.com using our class access code, which is J9H4N. 

Orders are due by the 2nd Thursday of every month.
