This year has gone by so fast. As we go into the last Trimester of 5th grade, I ask all parents to continue to support your child in their learning effort. Usually, toward the end of the year, students will begin to let go and not have the same excitement for school like they did at the beginning of the year. In class, we continue on with our curriculum, assignments, and projects. I will do everything I can to keep your child engaged and motivated. At home, please remind/enforce homework and reading time and not let your child make excuses for not fulfilling their responsibility.
Thank you for your support.
Our Website Project continues with students creating their own designs and adding favorite things. We will use our websites to publish our Black History, Women’s History, and State Reports.
OZOBOTS Part 2
In this week’s STEM time, we will continue our Ozobot exploration. Students have been using markers to draw lines for the Ozobots to follow. This time, they will use the iPad to program the mini robot.
TIPS FOR SUCCESS
Send Your Child to School Ready to Learn #2
Kids need the right amount of sleep to be alert and ready to learn all day. School-aged children need 10-12 hours of sleep a night. Bedtime difficulties can arise at this age for a variety of reasons. Homework, sports, after-school activities, TVs, computers, and video games, as well as hectic family schedules, can contribute to kids not getting enough sleep.
Lack of sleep can cause irritable or hyperactive behavior and might make it hard for kids to pay attention in class. It's important to have a consistent bedtime routine, especially on school nights. Be sure to leave enough time before bed to allow your child to unwind before lights out and limit stimulating diversions like TV, video games, and Internet access.
