Classroom Spotlight - Mrs. Arditti's Fifth Grade!

The students in Mrs. Arditti’s 5th grade math classes have been learning all about collecting data and creating line plots. We practiced creating line plots and graphs from various types of data. Next, we analyzed the data and began to make generalizations about it.

After a week of practice, students were ready to do some real world data collection. In small groups, students completed challenges such as blowing a pom pom and measuring it, standing long jump, and measuring their feet. Once they collected their data, students created a frequency table of their information. Making the tables assisted them in organizing their data and helping them make an accurate line plot. Last, students used their frequency table to create a line plot and see the trends.

We had a great time jumping, blowing and measuring our way to understanding line plot graphs and how they can be used in the real world!


This year, Mr. Pfeifer has brought the Summer Olympics to Brookside Elementary School for Field Day! Scheduled for Friday, June 3, 2016 (rain date: Friday, June 10), Field Day will be an excellent day for students K through 5 to participate in various team events.

This SPECTACULAR EVENT is a great way to wind down the school year, volunteer your time, and enjoy the outdoors with our amazing community for a day!!

We are calling on ALL and as MANY volunteers as possible! There are so many fun ways in which you can help….from assisting Mr. Pfeifer with individual events that run from morning to afternoon, to setting up/cutting up fruit, manning the fruit and water stations, sign making and the neat team/clean-up crew!!! This is a great chance for you to support our school and to have a fun-filled day with your child, as well as all the other children at Brookside Elementary School.
