"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." ~ Aesop

Week of: May 18, 2020

We made it to the end of the year together.  And perhaps that is the greatest lesson we have learned this year.  When we put our minds together we can get through anything.  

Our homeroom class zoom will take place Wednesday 12:00-12:20.  Look for the Zoom link sent to you Wednesday Morning.

NEWS FROM THE LIBRARY:
Please be prepared to return all library books and audio books to the school library when you come to pick up your child's / children's materials in June.  Mrs. Meszaros will email families by the end of May with a list of materials that are checked out to your children.  If you have any questions you can email her at emeszaros@fsd157c.org.

Great job completing the work in OneNote, I have enjoyed reading your work and offering you feedback on every assignment!

Access to weekly plans will continue to be on the district's HOME page, click on "Extended School Closure Lesson Plans due to COVID 19."  

This week's assignments include a daily introduction from a 5th grade ELA teacher, and will require students to respond to a prompt by logging into their One Note accounts.

If you have any question or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me. I will be updating my teacher page regularly so check back often. Thank you for always supporting our efforts.

None of these activities will be graded, and are being offered as a way to continue learning during the weeks ahead.

Keep emailing me with all the great books you are reading, stories you are creating, recipes you are trying, and games that you are mastering.  I LOVE hearing about your days.  I will reply; I promise.  Stay safe and enjoy the family time.

We want our students to enjoy the learning process as they continue meaningful ELA activities at home. In the download section of this teacher page, you will find a parent letter describing fifth grade ELA skills with questions and tasks for continuous learning during the days ahead. We have also created a choice board for students to use with their self-selected books. These items should be considered additional practice of skills already learned within the classroom.  Please use this information to facilitate a daily dose of ELA.

Students can also use online resources such as Storyworks, Newsela, and Epic to find stories and articles to read that can also be used with the given questions. 

These passwords are all you need to read stories, articles, listen to authors read aloud, or watch videos online. 

Any work that is done at home will not be graded, and is meant to stimulate and reinforce all the hard work we've done this past school year. 

If you have any question or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me and I will do my best to answer. I will be updating my teacher page regularly so check back often.

If your children would like to email me about what they're reading, then I'll respond to them.  I will look forward to hearing from them.

Stay healthy and enjoy your time at home with family over the next few weeks. 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Michalski
