"Oh! The Places We'll Go!"
WHAT'S NEW? (June 3rd, 2016)
Our class will be continuing the annual tradition of watching the movie "Gettysburg" as an end of the year treat. Since this movie is rated PG, please let me know if you would not like your child to participate. We plan to watch this next week.
As our year comes to a close, we reflect back on what a busy, yet fun, year we had! We enjoyed getting to know your children as learners and, more importantly, as people. We shared a lot of laughs and appreciated our time together!
A huge thank you to all parents who have contributed to our classroom in any way. We could not have had such a successful year without your support.
I would like to welcome all families to please keep in touch! We always enjoy hearing about what is going on in your child's life after 5th grade.
Please encourage your child to read over the summer. Read, read, and read! Anything of interest is fine. Has your child joined the Northbrook Public Library reading incentive program? If not, you can head over there anytime to sign up or email me for book recommendations.
The 5th Grade Golden Folder Assembly will take place on Thursday, June 9th. This is not a "graduation" ceremony, however, it is a celebration of how the students have grown as writers over their years at Greenbriar. A collection of their writing has been saved in a Golden Folder and passed on to the next teacher each year. Parents are invited to attend this assembly and stay to watch the video portion of the yearbook afterward. The celebration start at 1:00.

Have a fun and safe summer!

Red Nose Day
The students watched the Disney movie, "Ruby Bridges". Ruby, who was 6 years old at the time, helped to integrate an all-white school in New Orleans.
The students continued participating in their book club. They have been putting in a lot of independent reading time and are hoping to finish their novel by next week.
