5th Grade Rocks!

Science

When you want to move somewhere, you probably stand up and use those muscular legs to transport yourself!  But what if you were a rock? How exactly would you get to a new location? After studying how large rocks break into smaller rocks by physical and chemical weathering, your scientists moved on to asking how these smaller rocks then move from one place to another.  Next week, 5th graders will investigate the movement of sand and silt under normal rain conditions and during a flood. 

Read Aloud

This week, we began Witches by Roald Dahl. This hilarious book has captured their minds during the period after lunch. Students are listening how to look for a witch and where these witches may be hiding. Next week, we will discover who is the Grand High Witch!  Ask your child what some of the signs are to look for a witch?

Testing, Testing, 1,2,3

Students did a wonderful job with testing this week. Students took two ERB tests a day to display the knowledge they have learned all year. With only 8 more school days until graduation, the countdown is on!

Field Day Preparations

Students worked on creating a materials list and design for their posters for Field Day during Centers. With only two weeks to go, students should be buying materials and starting to create their poster.
