School is in full swing in fifth grade and students are really working hard! We look forward to an exciting week of learning with all of our classroom routines in place!
Classroom Community Updates
In Math, students finished Chapter 1 with a Celebration of Learning and moved into Chapter 2 which focuses on Powers of Ten, Multiplication, and Division. In Science, we began exploring gravity, rotation, and revolution. We are specifically going to dig into rotation and revolution this week with a focus on what causes longer and shorter days. In Reading, students explored multiple genres and set their personal reading goals for the year. This week, we will continue to learn about noticing and noting our thinking while reading. In Writing, the students focused on creative writing across multiple genres. This week, we will continue to build our Writing Community by cultivating our own specific author’s voice during independent writing time.
