Ms. Embery's 5th Grade

Welcome back from the long weekend! I certainly hope everyone has recovered from the tummy bug that was flying around the school last week! Knock on wood….after over 17 years of teaching I think my immune system can tackle anything! I was lucky to avoid whatever it was. As a gentle reminder if your child has a fever or does throw up, they must not return to school for 24 hours from the last fever/episode. It helps to keep from passing the bug around and around. Due to so many kiddos being out last week, we are playing catch up this week.

EmPower Testing: Math test will be Wednesday and Thursday morning

CKLA: We have finished our Renaissance Unit and took our final test today. This week we will do our biography of a famous person from that time period. Please look for planning pieces and rough drafts to be in binders this week. The final copy will be due next Monday. I will be giving plenty of time in class to work on this.

MATH: We will take our Chapter 6 test tomorrow. Today the kids and I went problem by problem over the review. They will be allowed to use the review to support them on their test. We will move on to Chapter 8 next.

NOVELS: We have started Wonder! Approximately every other day the kids should have comprehension work to do for the novel.

SCIENCE: This week Ms. Knezha will wrap up mixtures and solutions and give them their final test for that content area.

SOCIAL STUDIES: The kids are learning all about the royalty from the Elizabethian period.

Next Tuesday we have a wonderful day planned. Each class will rotate through a 90 minute time slot with Theaterworks from UCCS. We will focus on the Shakespearean Age of theater!

Have a great week!

Ms, Embery
