News and Events in Mrs. Bradley's 5th Grade Class
News & Updates
The countdown to middle school has officially begun! I'm trying not to think about how few days we actually have left together...:(
As for the students, they are working hard and growing so much as readers. Many have reached a level Z in reading this year! I'm incredibly proud of all their hard work.
Next week we begin our focused EOG review, "Survivor" style! We will be working in teams to earn beads and compete to win "immunity" from tasks all while learning test-taking strategies and ways to ace the test. They are super excited about this! Testing season can be very stressful for students and it is compounded by the knowledge that their regular school routine is coming to an end and things will be changing. I like to keep things fun, calm, and light-hearted as we approach the test to reduce stress and encourage positivity.
The reading log due this Monday, May 16th will be their last homework grade. I pushed them to get in those missing assignments at progress report time; the rest is up to them. I want them to continue to read nightly but not worry about outstanding work after this week. We will push through this testing time and then enjoy our last days as a class family. I feel like the mama bird, sending her babies out of the nest these days. xoxo
