Turkey TrotSee message below from Mrs. VanKoevering

Hello everyone,

I am hoping you can add this to your blogs this week.  We are trying to get Georgetown kiddos to sign up online for turkey trot and promote this through blogs and emails (so no paper copies going home).   So if you could copy and paste this into your blog that would be super helpful.  

Turkey Trot 2019 Registration is now open!   Deadline to Register is October 9, 2019.

Use THIS LINK TO REGISTER  and click on the PE BLOG LINK to learn more about the Turkey Trot Race.

Picture This…Our Class at Work!

We worked with partners to practice Adding & Subtracting Mixed Numbers with unlike denominators!

We rolled dice to make it a bit more fun, and even incorporated rock, paper, scissors into our practice!

For helpful links to help study at home before our test, check out the Subject Areas: Math page on the blog! It helpful videos and practice links! MobyMax is also a great option for extra practice also!

In Reader’s Workshop, we took stock of the work we had been doing as readers and celebrated how far we’ve come!

In Social Studies, we reinforced our learning about Federalism with a “Power Sort” game where students needed to work together to sort powers and actions into the different levels of government!
