This is our penultimate Weekly Update! Only TEN school days left in our Best Year Ever! We have plenty of exciting things happening in those final ten days together. Make sure to read the Reminders section for our important upcoming events.
Last week we finished up some units in the short week leading up to our 5th Grade Field Trip! Our Field Trip to Brunswick was a day filled with laser tag, pizza, friends, bowling, games, and FUN! Check out some of the pictures from the fun day on our class Twitter account. In Math we started Unit 10, which reviews Hands-On Algebra concepts in a more abstract way. In Science, students finished up the unit on Energy with a test on Wednesday. In Reading, students worked on their final projects for Among the Hidden, which focus on bias and perspective while demonstrating comprehension of the novel. In Writing, students finished up their Short Stories; they are amazing! We have a very creative bunch!
This week we will have our last Spelling Test of the year on Thursday! We will also be finishing up our Reading projects for Among the Hidden. Since the Energy Unit has ended, students will be able to dedicate more time to their Passion Time projects so that they will be ready to present their research on Friday afternoon! Students will spend Writing time writing information for their Passion Time presentations as they prepare.
