Assessments here we come!

The next two weeks we are assessing students and wrapping up the end of the second quarter. On Tuesday, we wrote down our New Year's Resolutions, with the help of our 5th grade book buddies, be sure to ask your child what they want to accomplishment in 2016! In Math, we are learning all about Shapes. We read the book Shapes, Shapes, Shapes by Tana Hoban. This book consists of wonderful photos of the world around us and all the different shapes we see. Students will be creating shape books and creative pictures using various materials to explore what shapes they notice. We will even go on a "shape walk" through our school seeing what we notice about shapes in our everyday life.

We have been enjoying many Winter picture book and stories online about the Winter season. Top Chefs wrote about what they like to do in January and illustrated pictures to match their words. We also created Snowman Glyph's to display in our classroom. Students answered 6 questions about snow, and from their responses they were then given prompts what to add to their snowman to make them unique.
