ELA Unit Test Review!

Next Tuesday and Wednesday we will have our last unit test in writing! Click HERE for the review. I will give a paper copy to all students on Monday but wanted them to be able to access it over the weekend. If they complete the review and have a parent sign their review, letting me know that they studied, I will give them bonus points on their test!

Pictures Needed!

5th Grade Parents,

As we are heading into the end of the school year, we are getting into some fun things with our students. I need your help for something cool I want to do. I am needing a picture of your student from kindergarten. Will you please email me a digital copy of one picture of your child that was taken when they were in kindergarten? Try to find one that you feel captures your child’s personality.

Please email 1 photo of your child to astoneman@clydeisd.org by Friday, May 5th!

Thank You!

Final Scholastic Book Order Of the School Year!

With just over 5 weeks left in school, April will be the last month for scholastic book orders. This is a great chance to get some books to read over the summer.

Thanks to all the student order this year we were able to get over 160 new books in our classroom library. I love seeing the different book suggestions from kids to add to our library and being able to make them a part of building the library up.

Each student that orders $5 or more this month gets a coupon for a free book up to $5. I’m so excited we recieved these free coupons for the students to get to use!

April Orders are due Friday, April 28th!

Career paper is typed in google classroom. A few things to check before you “turn in”…check the rubric for grading standards, each paragraph should be indented, paper should be in 12 point font, all websites that were use to collect information on career must be listed at the end of paper (nothing fancy, just a list). Once ready to turn in… click the “turn in” button located in the top right.

Career Presentations can be a poster, slideshow, imovie, prezi, etc. All digital presentations need to be shared with me through google by 8 AM tomorrow morning. Slide shows that are made through google slides can be shared by clicking the “Share” button located in the top right. Their you will type in my email astoneman@clydeisd.org and click done. Make sure that the file is named correctly. It should be your homeroom teacher- your first and last name (ex: Stoneman- Abby Carr).

Student Google Accounts: login with student email 24first initial middle initial last name@students.clydeisd.org (ex: John Joseph Doe would be 24jjdoe@students.clydeisd.org) This is the same information they use to log in on the chrome books at school.

Students that want to may dress up as their career for their presentation!

I am excited to see these awesome projects that they have worked so hard on the last two weeks!

Career Project Information!

Due Date: Friday, April 7th!

Part One: Paper- Students will type a paper in google classroom and submit digitally. They have done this before and should be familiar with this. The length requirement for this paper is 3 paragraphs, each paragraph must be at least 5 sentences. Students may write more but will be counted off if it is shorter.

Click HERE for the Career Paper Grading Rubric

Part Two: Presentation- Students will present their career in whatever creative way that they choose. I have sugested the following ways to present their career: slide show, imovie, prezi, poster/trifold poster (poster must be provided from home). I have shown them how to create a slide show and we have made imovies earlier this year. The are required to cover all of the required information from the list I gave them last week. The presentation has to have something visual. That can be a picture or dressing up, etc. I give them creative freedom as long as they answer all the questions and have something visual for the class to see.

Note: I have had some students ask if parents can come watch the presentations. Parents will not be able to come watch. I don’t want it to make it any harder for the students to present and I wont be able to get through everyone on Friday and wont know if each student will be on day one or two since they don’t have set times. If you would like, I will record the presentation of your student and send it to you.

Question: email me at astoneman@clydeisd.org

STAAR Testing this week!

Our 5th grade students will be Rocking the Math and Reading STAAR the next two days! Please help make sure that your student gets plenty of rest tonight, at least 8 hours of sleep. Also, a good breakfast! Students should try to have a breakfast that isn’t full of sugar. The sugar will give them energy in the begenning but that energy will fade early into the test. We all know that your student is going to do amazing tomorrow. Let them know how great they are as they head to school tomorrow!
