ACS Cobham International School
Fifth Grade Reading Room 203
Welcome to the Grade 5 Reading site. I've included information about the main components of our class along with links to some of the reference pages you will use throughout the year. Please refer to this home page for information about assignment due dates, vocabulary quizzes and book club meeting dates.
June 15-19, 2015
We have completed the vocabulary quizzes for the year!! During the final week, we will be reviewing the words and root words from the year by playing a series of vocabulary games. These games and activities are not graded assignments.
The final round of book club meetings will take place this week.
Groups 1, 3 and 8 will have their meetings on Tuesday, June 16th.
Group 2 will have their meeting on Wednesday, June 17th.
Groups 6 and 7 will have their meetings on Thursday, June 18th.
(The final meetings will be held outside if the weather permits.)
* I have asked that students prepare a journal response for the final book club meeting. This assignment may be written or typed on a separate sheet of paper. It does not necessarily need to be in the journal. Students will hand in the response after the meeting.
* Students have an additional task of completing one job of their choice for each book club meeting. These include: Word Wizard, Illustrator, Literary Luminary, Investigator, Connector, Travel Guide or Discussion Director. Please see the Book Club Roles and Responsibilities document for more information on each of these jobs.
We are continuing our final class novel activity for the year.
Groups 2, 6 and 8 are reading Alone on a Wide, Wide Sea by Michael Morpurgo.
Group 3 is reading The Wreck of the Zanzibar by Michael Morpurgo.
Groups 1 and 7 are reading The Shadows from The Books of Elsewhere series by Jacqueline Wilson.
