Grade 5

Week of May 20 – 24

Hi Grade 5 Families,

We had a very Spring week last week, with going back and forth between sun and rain! But no mind, we still got to enjoy the outdoors; even with our Track Meet at Vancouver College! We’re looking forward to the start of the Scholastic Book Fair this week!

Our featured image this week is from our Area and Perimeter exploration. We started our unit with a fun, math story called Spaghetti and Meatballs For All and used tiles to visualize the concepts.

  2. Reading Record: To get a chance to win a book from the Scholastic Book Fair, the children are reminded to keep reading for at least 3o minutes each day (something they should already be doing 😉) and get a parent or guardian to sign their reading record slip. The last day to get slips in are on Wednesday, May 22nd.
