All Dressed Up With Somewhere to Go

Things to know for this week:

MONDAY: Everyone wear red, white, and blue! Have your line/s memorized! This is about the veterans of our country, so it's time to show some honor. Everyone is welcome, but especially those who have served the United States in the armed forces.
  • I will also give a take-home test for Social Studies due back to school on Wednesday morning. 
  • We will have a spelling list this week based around BizTown.
  • I will also be introducing the state projects tomorrow and telling the students their partners. Can't wait for them to get started on these. 
WEDNESDAY: We go to the Palladium for the Carmel Symphony's performance for all fifth grade classes in Carmel Clay. I do ask that the kids dress nicely that day. We will get back to school in time to do most of our daily doings as per normal.
  • Take home test is due that day. 
  • Make sure that your child's permission slip for the Palladium is in to me before this day!
THURSDAY: 5-1 will visit the Book Fair in the Woodbrook Media Center at 10:05am. See the forms that went home for pricing. Also, feel free to come to the Scholastic Book Fair night on Tuesday evening.
  • On Thursday, I will be introducing a biography project that will be, unlike the state project, a mostly "at-home" project. They will be getting their biographies in the library on Friday morning, and I will send home the rubric for this project on Thursday. 
  • We will have a Math test on chapter 5 on this day as well.
FRIDAY: This will be the morning of the BizTown interviews! We've talked about this in class, the importance of eye contact, a good handshake, and a smile, and we will be filling out job applications beforehand. I also told the kids to dress nicely as though it was a real life interview. I normally give the boys a lesson on tying a tie that morning, so feel free to send them in with a tie.
  • Theme Test for Chapter 6 today.
  • Spelling Test today as well. 
Let me know if you have any questions! I know this is a lot to take in.
