Hands-on Science

We investigated whether there is a change in mass during a chemical reaction. Students added baking soda to vinegar and watched as the carbon dioxide formed by the reaction filled a balloon. Comparing the mass before and after the reaction we were able to reach a conclusion.

Welcome 5th Graders

Dear Soon-to-be Fifth Grader,

We look forward to meeting you in August at the start of the school year. In preparation for 5th grade your teachers would like you to continue reading, writing, and practicing math over the summer. You may choose as many books to read as you want. However, you need to select one book to write about. After you have read this book, you will pick a topic from the list in this folder and write a letter to your teacher and mail it by July 30.

Also in this folder are Summer Math Calendars to keep you up to date with your math skills. The goal is to spend at least 10 minutes a day practicing math over the course of the summer. The packet consists of 2 calendar pages, one for July and one for August, with a blank page on the reverse for answers. When you complete a problem you can color in that day on your calendar, so you can track your progress. We also ask that you practice your multiplication facts every week. Please return your completed calendar on the first day of school.

Enjoy the summer,

Ms. O’Dwyer and Dr. Hunt
