Franke Updates

Mrs. Franke's 5th Grade Class - Room 15

January

The students have done a wonderful job coming back from break. They all came back refreshed and ready to learn. I was thoroughly impressed with how seamlessly we got back in the swing of things in room 15! This is a class that models Parkview Pride!

The students will finish up their opinion papers this week. The students could choose their own topic and will need to incorporate at least one fact found from research to support their opinion.

The matter and chemistry unit will be wrapped up this week. The students are finishing up solving our Mystery Powders experiments and will be working in groups to separate their own mixtures.
