Summer Reading:

Incoming 5th Grade Students Read – read, read, read – newspapers, magazines, books….Join your Library reading program.

  • All 5th grade students will need to purchase and read the book In the Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson. The book needs to be completed by the beginning of the school year. We will begin our year with this book. If you have any questions feel free to email Mrs. Toby at mtoby@staindy.org.

Parents – read what your child does and discuss the book with them to make sure s/he is comprehending the story and can explain the story elements (main idea, plot, setting, characters, hidden/subtle meaning, etc.).

Write – Write about what you are reading or write about simple things like a favorite TV show, a baseball game, a party…..  Practice writing in cursive!

Parents – check sentence structure, punctuation, spelling and for introduction, details and conclusion.

Math – Daily math……grocery stores, restaurants, totals, change back; How far is it to….?  What time would it be if….?  These are things you can do in the car, etc.

  • Make sure that multiplication facts are memorized and can be easily recalled.
  • Be able to add and subtract numbers that include regrouping and borrowing.
  • Practice measuring with a ruler – inches and centimeters.
  • Use 4th Grade IXL to reinforce skills learned in Fourth Grade – fractions, decimals, all types of computation, etc.
Spanish Summer Homework!
A language requires a lot of repetition and reviewing, especially when they don’t have the exposure to the language. I would strongly recommend you to remind your children to watch videos and movies in Spanish at home and also read picture books where they can learn new vocabulary. Practicing at home will help so much!Videos we watch in class:

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, suggestions, etc.
