Fifth/Sixth Grade - Mrs. Charles

Classroom News

3/18/19 - 3/22/19

This week was fairly normal.  The students were able to get a lot of work done.  We have started talking about projects for the History Fair that will be on May 9th. This week, the students will choose a topic, write a proposal, and start working on their project.  I will be sending home the proposal, instructions, and a rubric for your student's project.  Saturday we have the Basque Festival/Dinner. If you have not been able to go to one, I highly recommend it.  They are a lot of fun, and the food is GREAT.  The last week of March is SPRING BREAK.

If you have not signed up for the Seesaw app, please do so. The students have loaded their test scores from the past week onto the sight and are excited for you to see how they are doing on their tests.

Please encourage your child to read for enjoyment. After reading a book in their reading range, make sure that they take an AR test. Each child will receive a milkshake of their choice after every 70 points earned in AR tests.


Math assignments for this week are lessons 71, 72, and 73,  for both grades. Assignments are randomly selected for grading. Those grades make up the Math Homework grade on report cards. Parents are encouraged to check all homework every night for correctness.

For graded homework assignments, students can redo any missed problems, turn the redo in with the original homework, and receive full credit for any problem correctly redone.

If your 5th-grade child forgot his/her math book, there is a PDF version in the Classroom Documents. Your child can find the day's lesson and do the work.

Unfortunately, the online link to the 6th-grade math textbook is no longer working. I no longer find the math book online when doing a Google search.


This week we will be studying "Brightness and Habitable Planets".

Social Studies

We will continue on with chapter 12.  Students will write vocabulary words in their Social Studies notebooks and will be doing worksheets in class.


We are back in the book and will be studying the life of Jesus.

I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL week. Please remember to keep our class and our school in your prayers.
