Class 5A


When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.
Genesis 9:16

Look for us on FacebookFifth Grade Happenings at St. Jane School.  We will post pictures of some of the fun we are having here in grade 5.  This venue will allow us to post small and large quantities of photos exclusive to classes 5A & 5B.  Hope to see you there!



I recommend covering all workbooks with clear contact paper and ask that you send in four book socks to cover text books on loan to your child.


Please send in headphones for your child to use in class for listening activities and for Spelling tests.  Please check in with your child periodically as to how well their headphones are working as I have found they do break unexpectedly and we use them quite often in class.


If your child has a seat sack from a previous year please help them to remember to bring this in for use in class this year.  If you would like to purchase a new seat sack they are available for $9.00 (please send cash).  


September 16-20

Religion:   This week we will be discussing how Jesus worshiped the Father and ways we are called to worship.  Test on Chapter 2 is planned for Friday.

Math:  We have begun work in our Simple Solutions workbook.  Students are asked to complete a minimum of ten questions for each lesson.  Each lesson I will assign a few of the questions during morning work that students need to include in the ten questions they choose to complete. We will continue taking notes for our work with Simple Solutions at the back of the Math copy books for quick reference when working on Simple Solutions.  Any Simple Solutions not completed, as with all morning work, needs to be completed for homework.  After every four lessons a Simple Solution quiz will be given. Simple Solutions will account for 10 percent of the overall Math grade.

We should be completing our review of Chapter One and planning a Test early next week.

ILA:  This will be a Reading Log Week, four entries due on Friday.  Spelling Test Friday.  We will work on singular and plural nouns as well as possessive nouns.  Students will continue reading in class as a group and on their own the novel, The Worst Best School Year Ever with a test this Monday 9/20.

Science:  Students will be discussing how scientists use inquiry to learn about the world around them.  Later this week we hope to set up our first experiment as a class!
