5th Grade Music Concert (downstairs) - Monday, 11/10 @ 7pm
We started on Week 2, which focuses on the essential question: "How does nature challenge us?" We read the Tall Tale "Thunder Rose" and have been practicing our "Sleuth" skills by finding evidence in a non-fiction text about the Norse god, Thor. Literacy skills we'll be focusing on next week are subject and predicate, cause and effect, and homophones. Finally, we finished our "paper blogs" by having each child comment on their classmates' blogs using sticky notes (these are hanging in the 5th grade hallway!)
Stay warm this weekend!
