I'm so proud of my homeroom, they persevered through each multiple choice and open response. It is a relief to have it behind us and move ahead.
Last week, the whole fifth grade was treated to an author visit from Matt Tavarse. He shared is journey as an author and even treated the students to an illustration.
We then ended the day with Read and Relax Friday. I am hoping this is our last Read and Relax that will require hot coco, and we can move onto lemonade.
This week students will be presenting their science experiments at Science Showcase. Parents are welcome to join us at 8:30.
In writing the students have just finished the Newspaper Project on nonfiction writing. Our next writing assignments will be persuasive or opinion writing. The students are very excited and have already started debating topics. I hope they shared with you, last weeks introductory topic; bully. The class had a very thoughtful and lively discussion regarding the reasons and consequences of bully. They have already asked me about our next opinion
