"The air is like a butterfly
With frail blue wings.
The happy earth looks at the sky
We began our week by attending the fifth grade band and chorus concert. It was awesome! We all loved watching our amazing students perform in this musical event.
Ms. Karen joined us for Brain Gym following the concert. It was great to get our bodies and brains moving with the kids' choice of Sun Salutations, balance boards, skull taps, finger touches and cross crawls.
Students will work on their final presentation for their Invention PBL experience this week. Students are working on Google Slide Shows, posters and videos to share their learning and understanding.
We will finish writing poems tomorrow. These poems will be displayed for the Celebration of Learning Night coming up next week. I hope to see families at this fun event.
Students have spelling homework tonight and Tuesday. Their test will be given on Wednesday. I will wait until the following Monday to give the new pretest. :)
We will begin Unit 9 in math this week. Students will practice multiplication facts by playing Product Pile-Up. They will solve number stories by multiplying or dividing with multiples of 10. They will also use mental math steps to multiply problems involving larger factors. We will have homework on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings. I will give them Wednesday off due to the SAS testing.
Have a fantastic week!
