Report cards went home today, Tuesday, June 9th. If you have any questions regarding your child’s performance, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can arrange a phone conversation as well.
This summer, all students need to review and practice their multiplication and division facts, read regularly, and stay active (we have a rigorous outdoor-oriented curriculum planned for next year). I’m also encouraging students to keep a daily journal. In this way they’ll improve their writing skills and handwriting. Students who would like to share a paragraph and photo from a vacation activity can get it posted on The Daily Platypus simply by sending an email (with pic attached) to email@example.com. Finally, online math practice via Moby Max and IXL are both accessible from home all summer. Students took home their log-in info today. Visit The Platy (dailyplatypus.org) regularly for updates about 5th grade, especially before buying school supplies.
I’m looking forward to having this class for 5th grade. Until then, enjoy your summer!
