What’s Coming Up – Week of April 15-19, 2019


Important Dates:

  • The end of fifth grade is full of exciting events. For your convenience, we’ve created a list of important dates. We’ve linked it to each of our blogs; you can view it here.
  • April 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25 – M-STEP testing dates for fifth grade. Please avoid scheduling appointments during the school day on these dates if at all possible.



  • Our curriculum will be light the next couple of weeks due to M-STEP testing.
  • We will continue to learn about the Revolutionary War.  There will be a test on this content on Friday, April 19th.  Look for a review packet to come home to help study for this test.

We’ve been practicing some constructed responses to prepare for the MStep coming up next week!

We also presented our informational slideshows on elements of the Revolutionary War. Each person set up their presentation and we walked around and clicked through and gave feedback! Everyone did a great job!

To practice for spelling, we tried incorporating some movement into our learning!

We used racquet balls to “bounce” each letter of our words between partners. Once we got a rhythm, we were able to practice our words smoothly and with confidence!
