Ask your student about Keep On Twisting!!!
We had a great full week of fun and learning! Students have been getting to know each other more and learning to work together. We have completed more team building games, STEM activities and even 5th grade painting. (mural picture coming soon..)
We have been pushing outside our comfort zone to "talk math". We looked at conjectures and arguments and how to talk through our thinking. We are working on finding area with fractional side lengths. This is a hard task and is one that would be great to be talked about at home.
We are working on increasing our writing stamina. We are writing our own choice stories each day!
Ask your student about their guided reading book which we have just started. We are also LOVING "Out Of My Mind".
This week we talked and SANG about Jamestown, Roanoke and Plymouth. We used our detective skills and found Roanoke and tried to determine what we think happened. We also tried our hand at governing Jamestown....ask about our online adventure.
Next week= HOMECOMING WEEK
We have Spirit Days this week. Join in on the fun!
