Morning Meetings

Our bright Fifth Graders started taking over Morning Meetings this week in class. This week’s topic was about bullying. Students were engaged in a conversation about what bullying looks like and feels like. Each week there will be a different topic that a Fifth Grader will present for the first 15 minutes of the day on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.

 

Math Fun!

Multiplying fractions is no easy task, but here in Fifth Grade we’re making it fun! Students are loving Kahoot! an online game that allows students to figure out a fraction problem, and then use their iPads to select their answer. This game allows students to use their testing strategies to eliminate answers they know are incorrect with the game’s multiple choice layout, while also learning more about multiplying fractions and using their skills to solve word problems.  

 

Explorers

This week researchers started diving deep into one explorer from Europe. We are learning all sorts of new things about the challenges that explorers face when leaving their home country to explore the “unknown” before maps were even made. Students are tracking the path of where their explorers have traveled and the materials they’ve picked up along the way. We are excited to present these findings!
