All rising fifth graders are required to read Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly and a second book chosen by the student for which he or she previously registered online. They must then write a response to literature for each of those two books. Please use the Fifth Grade Book Review Template prepared by the fifth grade teachers to complete this assignment. Responses for both books should be dated and turned in to the fifth grade teacher when visiting the classroom on Monday, August 13th.
Summer Math Packet
All rising fifth graders are required to complete a grade appropriate summer math packet over the summer. The rising fifth grade math packet will be available in ParentsWeb beginning May 24th. (Go to ParentsWeb | School Information | Resource Documents and select the correct grade level, i.e., the grade your child will be entering for the 2018-2019 school year.)
These math concepts should be a review of grade appropriate essential skills which were studied during the year and which the students should have mastered. Be sure to follow the directions in the packet and be prepared to turn in the completed work to the teacher when you visit the classroom on Monday, August 13th. Students should complete all problems neatly and make sure all are completely labeled. Students will be tested over the material in the math packet during the first week of school. If you experience problems, please email Mrs. Oliver at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mrs. Parker at email@example.com.
