Weekly Wrap-up

Mrs. Lord's Class

ELA Summary

This week we have been working on our BrainPOPs. For this project we read and took notes on multiple articles about Black Sunday. Then, we wrote scripts and had the choice of making a Powerpoint presentation or filming a video. Last, we made our BrainPOP about Black Sunday.

Also this week we got our books: The True Confession of Charlotte Doyle or Island of the Blue Dolphins. We will be identifying conflicts throughout the book, beginning with chapters 1 and 2.

Ballroom Dancing

This week 5th grade students learned the Merengue, the Tango, Swing, and the Cha-Cha. They will demonstrate the dances on Friday when parents are invited. It was a ball! YUK YUK YUK.
