Welcome to 2019! I hope you all had plenty of time relaxing and enjoying time with friends and family. I hope the students had a lot of time to read, play, and laugh in these past two weeks! I am so excited to get our Fifth Grade Family back together and start the second half of our Best Year Ever!
Classroom Community Updates
We will be starting plenty of new units in 2019! We will kick off the week by doing some Social Thinking about the kind of reputations we want to build for ourselves in the second half of the year. Students will also begin exploring the persuasive writing genre by learning about ethos, logos, and pathos. In Math, students will be working on a quick chapter on Algebra by exploring variables and equations. In Reading, we will continue our Nonfiction unit by exploring the different nonfiction text structures. We will also be shifting over to our Social Studies unit by learning about the Constitution and branches of government in the coming weeks.
