Take peek at our week!

 The fifth grade classes joined together to have a STEM project. STEM stands for; Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. We made a plank and ladder from Mr. Popper's Penguins. The students tried to make a plank and ladder that could hold a paper penguin. Some  teams made a successful finish but some groups fell at the last minute. only one group failed to them but we know the succeeded
We had so many materials and we had to make a ladder and stand for our penguin and it had to be free standing, it was really fun.  We LOVE STEM!

We watched a play that our chorus preformed called, "HAPPY THE HIGH-TECH SNOWMAN"
All of the chorus members did great whether they were preforming on stage or on risers.
I think a lot of people liked it, I know I did! We thought it was really funny too!
 Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I hope you get what you wanted.
We will see you all in 2015!

R.I.P Penny


Have you heard? We have some very sad news, our very loving class pet Penny, has died. She did not make it back to school after Christmas break and our classroom is a bit sad. We had some very good moments with her and we all loved her a lot. Even though she was a  BINGO board prize, she was family. Rest in peace Penny. We miss her already, but we will remember our  greatest moments!

A quick recap of our week:

Math:  Adding and Subtracting Fractions practice & intro to Mixed Numbers

Reading: We are way into reading the novel Woods Runner

Social Studies : The beginning of the Revolutionary War

Language Arts:  Reviewing types of sentences and working on our APE writing strategies.
