We are assessing our final unit which tackles metric and customary conversions, area and volume, and attributes of 2D shapes.
We are working through our unit: Argument and Advocacy which explores debatable issues and helps students understand various points of view surrounding an issue before choosing a position and using evidence to support an opinion.
We are examining the formation of our Constitution after the events of the American Revolution.
Georgetown’s Got Talent!
Each class from 3rd-5th will be having a LIVE Talent Show Day during their music time. The hope is to have the stage set up, microphones, class MCs, and run it as close to a mini Talent Show as possible during their class time. During this live show, Mrs. Bretz will be videotaping each act. The “official” Georgetown’s GOT TALENT Talent Show will be VIRTUAL. Of the videotaped acts, Mrs. Bretz will select 20-25 acts from the in-class live performances to create the virtual show. This will be shared with the whole school to watch at their convenience during the last week of school. Look for students who are interested in performing to bring home information papers. One side is a parent letter, the other is their act information.

Reading Comes Full Circle
We got to listen as first-grade students read to us.
It was great to hear the progress they’ve made since the beginning of the year!
We read to this first-grade class at the beginning of the year and now they got to read to us!
Hot Topics in ELA
We’ve been working in groups uncovering “debatable issues” in order to understand two sides of a topic.
Students sifted through multiple resources and looking for evidence that either side used to support reasons.
There are a lot of resources and it’s meant diving deeply into the text!
Students had an opportunity to present their findings. This week, individuals will adopt a position and begin to write an opinion essay around it.
