Hello Grade 5’s



Welcome to Mr. Fox’s Grade 5 class website for the 2016-2017 school year.
From here you can find current information about what is going on in our classroom, view assignments, due dates and notes that have been sent home. It will also be a place for students to show off work from class and share their ideas with the world.
You can also sign up for my Twitter updates at @MrIFox or text message updates at Remind101.
There are links along the top of the page that link to the various aspects of the curriculum being covered.

As always important notes will still come home as a paper copy or through the email address you’ve provided to the school.

So we are gathering stuff for each grades raffle basket theme and the money that was used to buy it goes to net to protect Africans from mosquitoes. In Africa mosquitoes carry a disease called malaria. people can get tickets at Meet the Teacher Night and have a chance to win a raffle basket(s)!!!
Grade 5’s remember to bring things in for the basket, our theme is games.

Using Remind

remind101I will be using Remind throughout the school year. With Remind, I’ll be able to text you important updates and reminders (I don’t see your cell number & you don’t see mine). I’ll still be using the website, emails, and phone calls to communicate, but I would like to give you this option as well, as I know that some parents find text reminders preferable to email ones. Below is a link with information about how to sign-up for this free service (standard txt message rates apply). Please let me know if you have any questions about this.

Our class code is @mrifox

UPDATE: Student accounts are only available in the United States. In Canada we can only use the Parent/Adult login.

Canada Map & Quiz

Students will have a Canada Map quiz on Friday Sept. 16.
I should know:
Provinces & Territories
Capitals of Provinces & Territories
Great Lakes

This information should be a review as they covered it in-depth in grade 4 but our Government & Citizenship Unit involves discussing various areas of Canada and I want them to comfortably remember where certain places are located.

There labeled & coloured map will also be collected on Friday.
