WELCOME TO THE FIFTH GRADE PAGE!!!

We will be learning so many new things this year! In math, fractions and decimals take center stage, in ELA we are learning correct punctuation and so much more, in social studies, we are learning the history of our country and have our Colonial Fair in May, and in science, we are exploring our universe!
 Stayed tuned for many more interesting developments as we explore fifth grade!

 AS WE COMPLETE OUR 2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR, LET US LOOK BACK TO WHAT WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED!
Math-We learned how to add, subtract, multiply and divide decimals and fractions.  We also began some algebra!
Social Studies-
We learned how our country was formed.  We studied colonial times and had our own colonial fair.  We also visited the Vanderbilt Museum in November!
Science-We learned all our body systems and how they affect our health.  We also learned about our planet and how we need to care for it.  We showed this by recycling paper and bottles in the classroom! We also visited Port Jefferson beach with Mrs. Donegan to learn about our sound!
Reading/ELA-We read various books with our librarian; Ms. Cheryl; read stories in our reader, acted out plays, had monthly book reports with different genres and ways of expressing what we read, learned about grammar, found out how to write a business and friendly letter; and received answers from companies!; and had fun discussing literature. 
Religion-We learned about our God given talents, how the church is structured, took time to write to Bishop Barres; and received an answer!; read about saints and their lives, and discussed what God wants from us.
In fifth grade we worked on becoming ready for Junior High!  Tests were only given 40 minutes toward the end of the year because that is what they will have to complete a test next year, we worked on organizational skills because we change classes next year, and we worked on responsibility for materials as next year is an important one to make sure we do our very best always and have what we need to accomplish this goal!
GOD'S BLESSINGS ALWAYS AS YOU GO FORTH! HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!
