Reading Next our story is At the Beach. Fernando leads the children
on an adventure they know they are not suppose to go on. When one of
the children gets hurt. Fernando tells a lie, so he doesnt get into trouble. He eventually confesses and his mother praises him for telling the
truth.

GrammarWe will work on simple subjects and predicates.


Writing Next week, we will be working on descriptive writing.
We will be using our senses to write about an object and then
a spooky house
Spelling The practice tests will be on Tuesdays. Students who
get all their words correct will be given full credit early so they
will not have to take the final test on Fridays. You may access
your spelling words on www.spellingcity.com/triton5 on your
home computer.

how early people came to our country? We are studying Native Americans. What region they live in and about their resources.

Note From the Teacher:

We will be launching the annual Tupperware Sales soon. Be looking for more information soon.
Thank you in advance for helping. All money raised helps our 5th graders go to Camp Amigo.
**Reminder** You are given the option of retaking the reading test each week. You need to use your
time either during study hall or recess and I will take the higher grade. Not very many students are taking
advantage of this opportunity to help your grades and become better readers.
