Take a Deep Breath, Go with the Flow, Just do Your Best and Show What You Know!

Welcome to 5th grade at Highland Middle School! My name is Ms. Kyleigh Squicquero, and I have been teaching 5th grade special education at Blackhawk for 9 years now! This year, I teach with Mrs. Muslin, Mrs. Taylor, and Mrs. Omogrosso. 

Along with special education, it is my second year as the gifted education coordinator.  For this position, I work alongside Ms. Oliver, Mrs. George, Mrs. Brown, and Mrs. Murtha.
Please let me know if I can be of any help to you or your child throughout the school year!  I can be contacted at the following email address:

ELA and Reading Class
Our next story will be Lesson 8:  When Washington Crossed the Delaware.  The focus skill is Text Structure: Sequence.  Your child's current Robust Vocabulary words and Spelling List can be found below under "Homework Assignment." 
We are currently working on Chapter 3 in math class.  Chapter 3 focuses on Decimal Place Value and Adding/Subtracting Decimals.  Each student has a Math Notebook that should come home with them any night they have math homework.  This notebook has examples and explanations of each day's lesson.

It is important that by 5th grade students are fluent in basic addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts.   Please practice at home by using flashcards, games, and Xtra Math.  Contact myself or Mrs. Taylor if you need any help accessing resources for fact practice.
Remember the best way to improve your reading skills is TO READ!!!  Mrs. Muslin's fifth grade students are asked to read 15 minutes every night.  Students should be reading "good fit" books.  "Good fit" books are books that are not too hard, but aren't too easy either.  We strongly encourage 5th grade students to read chapter books.  Although AR is no longer graded or required, students can still take AR tests.  READ, READ, READ!!
