Fifth Grade Weekly Update

Happy Fall!

This week, Autumn is in the air and we are in love with these crisp, sunny days! This week, the Fifth Grade took part in a wonderful experiential learning opportunity at the St. Louis Art Museum. We learned about abstract art, surrealism, cubism, and pop art in this, the second of a two-part program.  

In the classroom, we have blended our Writing and Social Studies as students are writing a biographical essay of a colonial character using 2-3 different reference sources.

Students in Fifth Grade study the Singapore Math approach, and are beginning to move away from bar models and learning to use variables to stand for unknown quantities. We are incredibly excited to wrap up multiplication and division of fractions and mixed numbers and move full-speed ahead into Algebra!

Finally, in Reading, Fifth Graders are completing a nine-point book report on the novel, Rules, by Cynthia Lord.  We are also beginning our study of our MADCO (Modern American Dance Company) book, Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, by Chris Grabenstein.

Enjoy your week!

Sincerely,

Ms. Mudd, and the Fifth Grade class
