Mrs. Benedik/Mrs Guerin – This week we will be starting our new reading unit on Myths, Legends, and Folk Tales. Students will explore the genre based on its original purpose, dating back to the oral tradition days. Students will have small assignments and a final project for this unit. Continue checking my website for more information.
Students will also start their first reading log this week. Students are to be reading 100 minutes in their independent chapter book. In fifth grade, I assign a reading log to ensure each student is able to read a book they are interested in and that they are able to practice our reading strategies adequately within a book that is just right for them. We will be setting up their reading logs in class and their first reading log is due Friday, September 14th.
Students will start working in their Spelling Notebooks more regularly this week and we will have grammar homework assigned. Their first grammar test is Thursday, September 13th.
