January Newsletter
I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. We are ready to get the ball rolling for the second half of the year. I can't believe how quickly this year is passing by!! Just a few updates: Parents, instead of continuing to pass out a weekly newsletter, I will be updating our class webpage instead. Please check here for all current news in our classroom. Also, our emails have changed. Mine is now williams.chasidy@hcschoolstn.org
Quick Notes for Parents
We will NOT be having a weekly spelling test for the next several weeks. We will be spending our time hitting our remaining uncovered standards rigorously. I will give you and the students a heads up when we plan to pick back up our spelling tests.
Weekly Standards: 1/19 - 1/22
Reading/Language Arts:
L.6 - Transitional Words
RI.3 - Explain the relationship between events, ideas, individuals, etc. based on specific information in the text.
RL.5 - Explain how a series of chapters, scenes, or stanzas fits together to provide the overall structure of a particular story, drama, or poem.

Social Studies:
New Material - WWI & The Roaring 20s

Please note that you can look up our Common Core Standards online at the following website to have a clear understanding of what your child is learning. http://www.corestandards.org/ELA-Literacy/RL/5/

Parent Involvement
Your fifth grader is in store for many meaningful and challenging experiences. I feel strongly that in order for the school year to be successful, it is necessary for the child, teacher, and parent(s)/guardian(s) to work closely together throughout the school year.
Please remember that your thoughts, concerns, and questions are always important to me. Please do not hesitate to call me at school (731-968-7484) if I am unavailable, I will do my best to return your call in a timely manner. For those of you who use e-mail, I check my e-mail several times throughout the day, therefore this would be the quickest and most efficient way to contact me. Please add me to your address book (williams.chasidy@hcschoolstn.org).
