All the latest news from our 5th grade class


We are so excited for our Biztown field trip this Tuesday. The class did a great job interviewing for their jobs--all the teachers were so impressed. We've been working in our companies all week; writing ads, calculating salaries, and discussing how to be a productive employee.

We've also been working on writing checks and balancing a checkbook. Signing our names in cursive has been a challenge.

For the field trip on Tuesday, students need to return the white Biztown paper (sent home on Friday). Students should also come to school with a sack lunch to take with them on the field trip. We will return from our trip at 3:30--a little later than usual.

Fifth grade's trip to Biztown is one of the most memorable days of the year-I am looking forward to it.

Hour of Code

Hour of code is a special event that happens each December across the country. It was started to help get students more excited about learning how to program a computer. Learn more at https://hourofcode.com/us

Earlier this month, we were lucky enough to have our technology teacher come in and teach us a special lesson on coding. In this lesson, one student was the robot. The other students in the group programmed the "robot." We had a lot of fun and learned how important clear directions are in coding.

Later this moth, we will explore more hour of code activities on the computer.
