Carnival Fun!

Halloween Carnival

It was another successful Halloween Carnival! Witches, vampires, unicorns, and even a First Grader strapped to a jetpack! The Fifth Grade students each created a Halloween-themed booth for the rest of the school to enjoy at the Halloween Carnival. We enjoyed everything from touching squishy “brains”, to pumpkin golf, to exploring a creepy Halloween obstacle course. Students dressed up in their creative costumes and had a great time socializing across grade levels. A few students even walked away with awards for their special costumes! Many parents donated their time, money, and creativity to make this event happen, and I want to give you all a big THANK YOU!

 

Our Favorite Special Class

Our Fifth Grade loves Yoga! It’s a great time to center yourself and relax for a 45 minute span during the busy school day. This is a time that new techniques and poses are practiced to help our brains and our bodies release any of the tension we may have gained throughout the day. This was especially needed after our amazing carnival planners worked so hard on Wednesday!

Literary Essayists

We have been hard at work writing literary essays in Grade 5. Writers are learning how to hook the reader, use transitions to move between parts, and include evidence to help us support claims about our chosen texts. Students has been working diligently on completing their first literary essay. Ask your child to tell you about the book they have chosen to write about!
