This year for our school-wide Spring Egg Hunt, we are asking for your help. If you would like to donate a dozen eggs filled with candy, stickers, or small toys, our class is going to hide them for the entire school on the morning of Thursday, March 28th. If you are able to help, please send the filled eggs to school with your child by next Friday, March 22nd. This is sure to be an awesome opportunity for the 5th grade! The entire school was asked to bring in a dozen eggs, so fifth graders don’t have to feel the burden of bringing in more than 12. 

THANK YOU! Thank you to all of the wonderful parents who gave up possibly two work days this week to come and witness your child’s accolades. DARE Graduation was wonderful, and we loved having you at our branch campus for this event. Not to mention the following day being a Lego Robotics competition. This is the first year that parents were invited in person to the event and the students were thrilled. Having spectators in their corner gave them extra focus, attention, and pressure, which isn’t a bad thing! They truly wanted to make us all proud. It was so fun seeing them compete and participate. Our special award winners will be announced on Monday. 

Language Arts:

  • Began reading “Because of Mr. Terupt”.
  • Continued our poetry unit with lessons on similes, metaphors, and writing poetry using figurative language 
  • Explored campus by taking a ‘poetry walk’. Students were to use their senses to observe nature and write a poem using similes and metaphors based off of their observations to enhance their writing. 

Math:

  • Continuing to practice simplifying fractions 
  • Learned how to add and subtract fractions with like denominators 
  • Beginning to add and subtract fractions when they have unlike denominators.
