Class News 12-11-2015
Mrs. Baxter and Ms. Hess's classes celebrated a WUNDERBAR game party together on Wednesday in recognition of the classes hard work meeting behavioral expectations. Children were invited to select from a variety of good old fashioned board games for a truly fun time! The smiles and laughter from all the kids reminds us of the value in taking the time to bond with each other through fun, not just academic, experiences.
The classroom holiday party will be on Tuesday, December 22 in the afternoon. The specific time will be sent in next week's newsletter. In addition, the fifth grade will be swimming on Tuesday, December 22. Please send a suit, towel, and additional plastic bags as we also clean out our lockers.
PS..Gum has been found on the playground, therefore, until kids earn it back through earning the letters to spell WUNDERBAR, gum will not be allowed in fifth grade.
Social Studies: I can inform others about the adaptations a Native tribe made to survive.
Writing: I can compile my notes about a topic and create a Google presentation.
Reading: I can pick out a theme of a realistic fiction supporting my thinking with text evidence. I can summarize what a book is mostly about.
