The fifth grade is now working on informational texts. They have broken into small groups to read and work on main ideas and summaries. Their books are pretty interesting and colorful studies of sharks, turtles, penguins, alligators. Their final project will be a poster of fun facts done on their Ipads to share with the class.
Once we come back from Fall Break, we are going to do a STREAM project with the 4th and 6th grade on Frank Lloyd Wright.
I will be giving the students their new AR goals this week. With Fall Break, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, this quarter will go quickly!! I am really encouraging them to get a jump on their reading over break.
In Language Arts, they have been assigned a 3 paragraph paper on a Living Saint who influences them in their faith. The students will be coming to you to help edit their draft before starting on final copies. These papers are due the Wednesday they return from break. We will be working on their drafts in class this week.
