Happenings in Room 22
*Thank you to everyone who contributed and bidded on the Michigan and Michigan State baskets! We have $65 going towards our fifth grade end of the year activity! HOORAY!
*Students continued working on their mysteries this week and peer edited classmates stories using Google Docs. Students finished their mysteries on Friday and begin to co-write stories with classmates using Google Docs.
*Students took a test over chapter one in math on Tuesday. They did VERY well! Test results have been entered into the gradebook and are available on PowerSchool. I will pass back the tests to students tests on Monday (we have had some absences this week).
*This week, units on Native American regions in the United States and Heredity were begun.
