We had a great time as a class last Tuesday during Field Day. I was so impressed with the great sportsmanship shown by these amazing fifth graders.
We had the best time sharing holiday picture books with our kindergarten friends. Our class spent the first 3 weeks of December practicing our books and we were so excited to share with kindergarten. Click on the link below to see pictures of our super cute readers!
Just a reminder that the non-fiction chip bag book report is due Tuesday, November 22. We will share them in class. each student has chosen a non-fiction book, and has been given some time to read them in class. Once the book is completed students will write facts from the book on “chips” that will be placed in a paper bag. The bag should be decorated to entice the reader to gobble up the facts. A short paragraph and book recommendation will be attached to the back of the bag. All the directions and materials came home a few weeks ago. Let Mrs. Lapp know if you have questions.
We had such a great time learning about the layers of the Earth and what can cause the land forms around us. The students did a fabulous job demonstrating their learning by creating a way to show the 3 layers of the Earth. The sky was the limit on this project and creativity was encouraged. Boy did they know my socks off! Such creative ideas! Projects will stay on display in our classroom until after Thanksgiving.
Next week information will be coming home for the October book report. Each child should choose a mystery story to read during the month. Once the book is finished students will complete a mystery case file to summarize their book, this will be supplied by me. I will also be sending home a blank puzzle. On the puzzle students should illustrate the solution to the mystery they read. These puzzles will be shared in class on October 28th.
