Welcome to my fifth grade webpage!

FSP EXPLORATION NIGHT-THE HUMAN BODY
The FSP will be hosting a family night at Chelsea on Thursday, January 25th from 5:30 to 8 PM.

D.A.R.E.
In fifth grade, the students participate in a nine lesson program that teaches them how to resist pressures that may influence them to experiment with alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Upon completion of the program, students will have a special D.A.R.E. graduation. Parents will be invited to attend. You will receive notification of the date for the ceremony. Officer Riff and Officer Sroka are our instructors from the Frankfort Police Station.

TYPING INSTRUCTOR
Please encourage your child to practice their typing skills on the Typing Instructor link found under Student Resources within the Chelsea Intermediate School web page. These engaging activities will help them learn keyboarding skills that will build speed and accuracy in a fun and challenging way. The students are aware of their user name and password.

SIX FLAGS READ TO SUCCEED
Please consider having your child participate in the Six Flags Read to Succeed Six Hour Reading Club. The form will be sent home in their report card envelopes on Thursday, November 2, 2017. The completed reading log needs to be returned by February 1, 2018.

ERIN"S LAW PRESENTATIONS
Governor Pat Quinn signed Erin's Law in January of 2013, which requires all schools in the state of Illinois to provide age appropriate sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention education programs for their students in grades Pre-K through 12. In response to this legislation, Frankfort School District 157-C will be presenting, "Child Lures Prevention: Think First and Stay Safe", curriculum for the 2017-2018 school year.

MATH
Zearn math accounts have been created for each student. Every student has been given a username and password. It should be attached to their homework agenda cover. We work on Zearn to build a stronger conceptual understanding of the math objectives. Students need to know more than just how to solve a problem. We are working towards being able to go deeper and understand why it works. Therefore, please encourage and support taking the time to work on Zearn at home too. Our class code is HH4X8F.

WRITING: Argumentative Writing

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?

"The habits we form from childhood make no small difference, but rather they make all the difference." -Aristotle

E.L.A. READING LOG
*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. Can you exceed the expectation?
