Math has become differentiated across the classroom. Each student is able to work at their own pace throughout the allotted class time. Topics that are being studied range from multiplication and word problems to division and fractions. Please continue to have your children practice number facts at home as this will aid in the pace of their recall of specific facts. Everyone should be working on multiplication and division facts.
Reading with fourth grade was so much fun that we decided to continue with another round of books. Each group will read a book that focuses on diversity as books about Chinese culture, traditions, and family life are read. Comprehension and vocabulary development are skills that we will continue to develop and enhance through teacher designed questions and activities.
We will continue to cook up delicious, savory, hamburger paragraphs into our everyday writing. Writing will also become cross curricular with science as we work on our endangered animal reports for science. We will continue our grammar practice in our writing with verb tenses, contractions, and suffixes.
As a culmination to our animal habitats and life cycles unit, each student will research an endangered animal of their choice and complete a written and technology-based project. Once complete, our next unit will focus on the three states of matter.

Graduates of Quaker elementary schools know themselves and are able to recognize the strengths of peers. Because they are effective communicators and creative problem solvers at an early age, the fifth graders approach transitions with self-assurance. They are not only prepared for a middle school setting; they are “ready” in every sense.
