5th Grade – Kemp

May Newsletter

Where has the year gone?   It has been a joy this year working with your student.   The students have shown tremendous growth and have worked really hard on the NWEA.   As we wrap up our testing, we are looking forward to our end of the year events.

In reading, the students have worked really hard identifying plot, problem & solution, cause and effect, setting, and character motives and inferences.   The students will finish up the year reading, Number the Stars by Lois Lowry.

In writing, the students will be finishing up the year with their opinion writing on a school community issue.

In math, the students will continue to review all math concepts.   Over the summer we are encouraging students to keep on memorizing their addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts.   The students have worked really hard this year, getting these memorized.   It is imperative that they retain this information to be successful in sixth grade math.

As the end of the year approaches we have many fun activities to look forward to.   Please make sure that you mark your calendar, and we look forward to seeing you!

This summer students will be receiving a summer packet.   This summer packet will enable students to practice the skills they have mastered in fifth grade.   Please encourage your child to complete this packet, so when they return in the fall they hit sixth grade running! :smile:

Have a great summer and we look forward to seeing you next year!
