Calling all Superheroes!

Fifth Grade News, Week of October 7

Novel Study

Our first novel study, Island of the Blue Dolphins, will be in full swing this week. Both language arts classes will be reading this book. Please let me know if you were unable to secure a copy for your student!

Classroom Economy

Friday was the opening of the Powerbuck Store! Before the opening, we discussed the process of taking a check to the bank and what it means to endorse a check. Olivia, our banker, cashed paychecks for those students who had classroom jobs during the month of September. A frenzy of buying took place, but many students chose to save their bucks in hopes of earning enough to purchase the grand prize- "out to lunch with teacher"!
