Recent Happenings

Midterms will be coming home on Friday, 5/3. They will be given out at the end of the day. Please bring signed copies back to school on Monday.

Science

Students participated in an experiment this week to observe temperature changes that occur when you place something that is warm into something that is cold. Students recorded the temperatures of the two liquids every minute for a total of 10 minutes.

Reading

Students are continuing to read From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler this week. At the end of each week, students will have a literature response to write about the chapters they read. These should be done in paragraph form, with full sentences and fifth-grade writing.

Spelling/Vocabulary

The spelling/vocabulary words will continue to come from our novel study book for the duration of the unit (From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler). Students should study the SPELLING of the words, as well as the MEANING of the vocabulary words.

WEX

Students are doing a great job of developing their fictional characters by putting their characters in mundane situations and going into detail about what happens in these situations.
