Recent Happenings

What a busy week we have coming up in fifth grade! The Patton Walk-a-Thon is on Wednesday from 4-5:30. Students that will be participating in the walk will stay after and we will walk down together after the bell to prepare. The fifth-grade musical, School House Rock, is on Thursday at 7:30 PM in the Patton Commons. It will be a great show! There is no school for students on Friday, 5/24 or Monday, 5/ 27. Enjoy the long weekend!

Reading:

We will be finishing reading From the Mixed-Up Files this week, completing Chapters 9 & 10.

Spelling/Vocabulary:

Due to the School Improvement Day on Friday (no school for students), we will be taking our vocabulary/spelling pre-test on Monday. All the homework, therefore, will be moved up one day. Students will be assigned spelling corrections on Monday night, definitions/part of speech on Tuesday night, and sentences on Wednesday night.

WEX:

Students have been writing very creatively with their characters! We have also participated in fun fantasy writing prompts based off of a picture, and 5-4 students came up with what was happening in that moment. We will be continuing to develop our fiction characters this week.

Science:

Students are continuing with the energy unit. Looking forward, they will soon be coming up with sketches involving their own chain reactions!
