Weekly Wrap-Up

1-11-16 to 1-15-16

ELA Summary

This week in ELA we worked on continuing our books, Hurricanes and Shipwreck. We also worked with main ideas and details. We will be writing summaries for the books we worked on, Fantasy Becomes Fact and Shipwreck. Then we will work on editing and revising this piece with our teacher and peers.

A Special Visitor

This week we had Mrs.DeHart come in to watch us work. She thinks that, "You remind me of me working when I was in elementary school."

Looking Ahead to Next Week

Next week we will be off on Monday and Tuesday because of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Since we have off on those days, we will have the vocabulary test on Wednesday for list 13. There is no Wordly Wise for next week. In two weeks the whole fifth grade will be participating in ballroom dancing with Mrs.Williamson. On January 29, all parents are invited to watch from 2:15-3:05.
