Color Day was a blast. Students cooperated in teams to chase victory in a number of fun events, such as tug-o-war, the sack race, and Battleship. It was a tiring but delightful day.
We started some fun projects last week. In Math, students could choose to either create their own end-of-year math assessment, or create a brochure of all of the topics we studied. Another project we embraced was creating a Fifth Grade Survival Brochure. Students are each working on a brochure designed to inform my next class what to expect and how to be successful in fifth grade. I can't wait to post student work so you can chuckle along with me at students' creative, clever, and humorous designs.
Here is the plan for the LAST 3 DAYS of school:
Fifth Grade Moving On Ceremony: Monday, June 22 at 1:30pm in the gym. Students can bring their fine clothes to school to change into if they would like.
End of Year Assembly: Wednesday, June 24 at 9:00am in the gym.
- I will finish reading aloud of The Eyes of Kid Midas by Neil Shusterman.
- We finish our Opinion Essays. Students will publish their essays and engage in a debate.
- We also finish our Fifth Grade Survival Guides.
- We will finish our end-of-year math assessments or brochures and share them with a partner.
- We briefly learned about the US Constitution last week. I will show students a fun video on the three branches of government. We didn't have time for the mock government to run, unfortunately.
Thanks for reading!
It's been a wonderful year with students. They truly are the BEST CLASS EVER. I wish them nothing but the greatest happiness and success in middle school and beyond.
Have a great summer, students! You deserve it! #BCE
