Continuing to Cook in Math

We were able to have Logan make us a wonderful winter treat during math. Logan showed us how to make our own hot cocoa mix! The class enjoyed this toasty treat topped with marshmallows during math.

Coffee House

The class is finishing up writing their poems and publishing their Story Jumpers. To culminate their poetry unit, we will be having a Coffee House! Students are working on memorizing two poems. During Club Time, student are rehearsing their poems trying to incorporate inflection in their voice and animation to bring their poems to life. Then on December 22nd, each student will perform their poems to the class. Ask your child to recite their poem to you!
What Most Schools Don't Teach

PJ Day

Student Council has a new project helping out kids in Uganda. The student assigned to 5th Grade is: Dennish (same as Dennis) Onencan (Boy). Dennish lost his father during the war; also is very shy. When he grows up he wants to be a doctor. If your child would like to support Dennish they can bring in a $1. When they bring in their dollar they are able to wear PJ's on December 19th!

Hour of Code

An hour of code is a global movement in both children and adults. Students in all grades choose from a variety of self-guided tutorials on creating computer programs. If they are working with Anna and Elsea designing a snowflake or Angry Birds, students are having fun while learning computer programming.
