Grammar and Writing

Fifth graders enjoyed a lesson about the life and contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. After the lesson, each group worked collaboratively to create the quilts and mosaics displayed in the pictures. The students were very proud of the work they did together. If you are in the building, please try to walk by and admire their work.

We are approaching the end of the 2nd trimester (March 2nd). That means another district writing assessment. Our focus has been on opinion/argument writing. Students are currently working on a piece in class where they will have the opportunity to conference and receive feedback. The assessment will take place the last week of February.
