FIELD DAY: The fifth grade will have field day on Wednesday, May 30th from 11:00-12:35. Please contact me if you would like to help out with our Field Day activities!

BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS
*Invitation Reminder: We never want to have a child feel left out or have their feelings hurt by not receiving an invitation to a party.
This is why we highly discourage the passing out of invitations at school. The only exception is if you are inviting the whole class and the invitations are distributed by your child’s teacher. Invitations are never to be distributed by a student or parent.

PARENT MATH RESOURCES are now available on the Chelsea Webpage!

*We are excited to be using Typing Instructor which is a program that students can also use at home. Log in information is as follows:
Usernames for students are their entire first name and last name, no space and capital letters for the first letters of each. Password for all students is typing (all lower case).
Example: MickeyMouse
Password: typing
*A link for Typing Instructor can be found under my Cool Links.

MUSIC
Our class will have music on "I" days. Band and orchestra students must have their instruments.

READING AT HOME
Is reading part of your family's daily routine?
*Reading is the most important skill because it is the basis for learning throughout the school day.
*Reading takes practice.
*Make reading a part of your family's daily routine.
*Read every night with your child or along side your child.
*Ask your child to occasionally read aloud and listen to how they're able to read with fluency, expression, accuracy, rate, phrasing, and punctuation.
*We will be working on reading more fluently in the classroom with weekly goals. What will be your child's goal this week?

E.L.A.
*Our fifth grade homework expectation of students is to read a minimum of 80 minutes per week. The students are working on weekly reading goals and a weekly reading log. Can you exceed the expectation???
