How We’ve Grown
This week we opened our height strings that we measured ourselves with at the beginning of the year to see how much we’ve grown over the Fifth Grade year. Many students were surprised by how much they have grown over the year. We not only talked about how much we’ve grown physically, but also how much we’ve grown academically and socially over the year. Many students talked about how much confidence they’ve gained. They feel prepared and excited for Sixth Grade. It is sure to be another great year for them!
Wrapping Up Westward Expansion
To wrap up our Westward Expansion unit this week we presented our papers and visuals to Fourth Grade. Historians taught about things like the Gold Rush, the Transcontinental Railroad, and covered wagons. Fifth Graders also displayed their visuals that went along with their papers, some students made covered wagons while others showcased WANTED posters to go along with their papers about cowboys. It was a great way to end such a fun unit.
Wow! There are so many emotions that surround graduation; sad feelings, happy feelings, nervous feelings, and many more. This week was all about wrapping up curriculum, preparing students for end of year festivities, and saying goodbye. Graduation and Field Day were beautiful ways to end the year and say goodbye to the school they’ve grown up in, the friends they’ve made, and the teachers that prepared them over the years. Thank you again for all that you’ve done to make this the best year ever! Have a great summer!
