Class 5A

Class 5A: Mrs. James

Looking toward autumn

We have been busy learning new academic concepts as well as working on polishing our daily routines.  Predictable routines and procedures help us spend less energy on necessary tasks such as handing on homework, so we will have more energy to spend being engaged in active  learning. Good organization and staying on task help us to acheive this goal.

** Test Folders ** coming home Friday, Oct. 8,2021.  Please sign and return all items. Thank you. 

ALERT: I had a cyber calamity (W)  10/06/2021 and am unable to access the original Remind group for 5A. Yikes!

We have established a new group for 5A. Please join by sending a text to 81010 with the message, @kg9gb4h

The Remind App is a handy way to send simple messages.  Please continue to utilize email for more serious communications. Download from the App Store or Google Play to your phones or mobile devices. There is no limit to the number of devices that may join. Once you download the app, click Join a Class.  

All 5th graders will need an independent reading book at school.  Books can be borrowed from the class library, but due to COVID-19, I am encouraging students to bring books from home.  

Students will have three journal entries due every other week. 


WATER BOTTLES – A necessary item in today’s classroom; however, these metal flasks are frequently falling off desks and causing disruptions throughout the day.  In brainstorming a solution someone suggested covering the bottles with a heavy sock so they could be kept clean, placed on the floor, and have some insulation from the clanging noise of metal against floor.  I would like to give it a try.  Last season’s athletic colors can be this season’s bottle cozy. Thank you.
