Our star student last week was Dylan Donley! We enjoyed learning more about him and the MANY ways he enjoys sports and the outdoors! Dylan was an awesome helper all week and we appreciate it!
Family Life/Health Class - Classes are this week (Tuesday and Wednesday mornings).
MARBLE PARTY!!! - They did it! (In the nick of time!!) Room 3 filled their marble jar, so it's time for a movie/pizza/spirit day! Due to the health classes and rocket launches this week, we do not have an open time until next Monday, June 4! Many thanks and much gratitude to Kathleen Keith (Trevor's family) for donating and picking up our pizzas. If you are able to contribute waters, veggies, fruit, and/or cookies, etc., please just email me and let me know. I will cover any outstanding items. Thank you!!
5th Grade End of the Year Picnic! - All is on track for an awesome day! Elizabeth Herrera (Stephen's mom) and her fearless crew of picnic planning revelers are busy getting our special celebration all set! The weather next week looks perfect for the fun!
Math - We will be doing some fun math games and special projects!
Reading/Lang. Arts - Pairs are working on their "Design A Donut" challenge! This persuasive writing project is based on each team persuading the donut shop that their donut creation should be "Donut of the Month". They have invented their flavors, toppings, shapes, sizes, colors, fillings, names and a host of other features. They are now busy writing their essays and getting their poster ready to submit for the contest! The class will vote and the winners get...you guessed it...donuts! :)
Social Studies - We continue our study of the American Revolution.
Science - Our STEM science Summer Sports competition is in full swing. Team Austin & Ethan and Team Jackson & Sydney tied with a whopping 535cm flight during our archery competition. Our next event?? Diving! Students will use what they know about water, gravity, volume, surface tension, and swimming (of course) to construct a "diver" that will displace the most water.
Additionally, this Thursday is our water rocket launch day! We have had so many cool water rockets come in and we are excited for take off!
