Welcome to Mrs. Abbey's Class Page!


Respect. Teamwork. Success.

Welcome to Our Class Page!

Fifth grade is a busy place so please check back often for the latest happenings and assignments.
In reading, we are identifying text features and determining how they help nonfiction readers.
In writing, we are collecting research to support our thesis statements as we prepare to draft social issue essays.
In math, we are using tenths, hundredths and thousandths grids to determine the value of decimals. 
Fifth grade is so exciting!

Study Island

Study Island is a great way to extend student's learning into the home.  All that's needed is a computer and internet connection.  To use Study Island, log on to www.studyisland.com, and have your child enter their username and password.  Make sure that your child uses pencil and paper when necessary.  Study Island is also a great preparation tool for the PARCC in April.




The presentation of work should repressent pride in one's accomplishments These are the standards we expect all children to adhere to in order to perform at their highest level.
