November Newsletter For Mrs. Linehan’s Fifth Grade Science Classes
We will begin the month by completing “What is Science?” Lesson 2 Technology. The pages included are 361-395. The test is tentatively scheduled for Friday, November 9. Students will create a study guide in class by writing notes into their Science Notebook. All vocabulary words will be included. This will be counted towards the second trimester grade.
As I discussed with parents and students at conferences, it is the responsibility of the student and parents to keep track of grades in Power School. Missing assignments are noted. I post grades weekly.
We will begin chapter 1- What is Matter? Solids, liquids, gases and plasmas. There are 10 vocabulary words in the first three lessons. I am quite sure that we will cover this material in November. It is important that students keep up with words, and enter them in their vocabulary folder.
At some point during the month of November or December students will take a week to complete a research project. This will all be done in class. I will be out of school because my daughter is having a baby and I will be helping her. Stay tuned….
Students continue to complete vocabulary assignments and comprehension checks, participate in labs, and take notes.
If you have any questions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Do not press reply to Power School; I will not receive the email.
Enjoy November and your Thanksgiving celebrations!
