ELA: Non-Fiction Texts

  • We are focusing on becoming powerful readers of narrative and expository nonfiction texts, as well as constructing written responses that give evidence to support our thinking.
  • Reminder….The students are expected to read 100 minutes a week. As a parent please initial the log when they read at home, showing you confirm your child has read for the minutes recorded.

Science: We are wrapping up our science unit “Go with the Flow!”

Fun with Our Buddies in Kindergarten! Last week, we got together with Ms. Hutchison’s class to build gingerbread houses!  It was a fun way to get into the winter spirit and do some STEM activities…and satisfy our sweet tooth as well! Check out some photos below of our creations!

We listened to Ms. Hutchison give directions.

We planned out our designs and started our structures.

Our kindergarten buddies were thrilled to have our 5th graders in to help!

The final result was SWEET!

We had lots of fun!
