Class 5B

May all our actions, words, thoughts, and spirit be centered in God, on God, and for God! Let us keep our passions well-disciplined and our spirit pure and faithful. Fidelity to our way of life will help us keep our thoughts centered on God. Then our words will be an inspiration to family, friends, and acquaintances.                                 

 -Saint Jane Francis de Chantal

 

Welcome to 5B with Mrs. B.

Just a friendly reminder, you may reach me through email [email protected]  if your message has information that is time sensitive please call the school with your message as emails are often read after the school day.

February 6 – 10   

Collecting for the Food Pantry and Homebound – not too late if you still need to drop off.

Homework:  daily homework can be viewed on our Google Classroom listed under “Morning Work

Religion:  Students should begin studying their notes on Chapter 11, We Are Sent to Glorify the Lord.  I highly recommend creating flashcards with index cards, Google Slides or sign up for a free quizlet.com account. 

Math:  We will begin our study of dividing fractions and will also continue to complete a quiz almost daily (daily skills quiz) on adding fractions, subtracting, and multiplying fractions, in hopes of keeping these skills sharp.  Each quiz has about 5 questions and usually after 4-5 quizzes they are bundled together to make one quiz grade. The class will have a test on just dividing fractions on Wednesday 2/1. 

Going forward the NJHS Homework help for 5B will be on Wednesdays only.  Students may stay to work on homework and study until 3 pm with a note on their dismissal plan.  I am also available to assist students with questions and am happy to give extra help in preparation for exams.  

Language Arts:  Journal Writing and Reading Log alternate weeks for homework. This week is a Journal Writing week, 3 entries (full page each) due Friday.  Spelling Test this week, Friday. Our grammar work will continue to focus on nouns.  We will continue working with the story Second Day, First Impressions students may access our current story from the Wonders series text or on https://my.mheducation.com/login  or vocabulary is posted at the top of our Google Classroom.  The reading test is scheduled for Wednesday 2/8. Students have their user/passwords in their green folder. Please be sure your child has an independent reading book for class everyday.  In class students will be tasked with writing a five paragraph essay based on someone they admire.

Social Studies 5A & 5B: 

We begin our study of the 13 colonies.  We will be taking notes and reading our next HMH magazine and mapping the colonies. A future date will be set for a test on the magazine and mapping information. 

Along side the magazine work, we will be viewing the Liberty Kids Series.  Students will have study questions based on each episode and after every five episodes there will be a quiz on just the Liberty Kids information.  Sometimes videos need to be watched in class with headphones, please check in with your child often to know if their headphones are in working order.

Students have all been linked to a Google Classroom with me in order to see work done in class when they are absent.  If students need to copy notes not completed in class they may find the notes and links to any videos watched in Google Classroom.

Science: Please see Mrs. James’ teacher page.

All plans are subject to change.

Here is the link to the wish list I was asked to create for class 5B. I have included the usual class supplies, some items I purchase each year, some I plan to purchase and few extra wishes. We can always use tissues and disinfecting wipes if you prefer to pick them up when you see them on sale during your weekly errands. https://www.amazon.com/registries/custom/1Z4G3CN5RG27P/guest-view   Thank you!

Please Note:

If absent, please take the time needed to rest.  Students are allowed the number of days absent to make up the work they missed once they return to school.  If extra time or support is needed to complete any assignments, please let me know so that arrangements can be made.  I am happy to help.  When feeling up to doing work, the days classwork will be posted in our Google Classroom.  I will try to post this as soon as possible at the end of the school day. Assignments are subject to change.  If needed, you may request books be sent home with a sibling or arrange for pick up in the office, however, I do try to include all that is needed in the Google Classroom when I know someone is absent.
