Week 29: March 21-25

 

This is going to be a fast and crazy week! Not only is it the last week before spring break, but it is also the last week of the third quarter. To add to the excitement, we have all school speech meet and a half day on Friday!

When we get back from Easter Break we will have only 9 weeks left of fifth grade together. The first 28 weeks went so fast! But I am very excited with all the fun subjects and information we get to explore the last 9 weeks of school! We will learn some biology in Science. We will soon start on the 50 states in Social Studies. We get to explore geometry and algebra in Math. Writing will be getting more interesting when we write stories and poems! And so much more! It’s going to be a fun last 10 weeks of school!!!

Week 26: March 7-11, 2016

Social Studies class has been so fun the past few weeks. We are learning about how the country was created. Today we broke down how the three branches of the government work and it created great discussion! Next Wednesday we get to see how our government works close up by visiting the courthouse. I am so excited to share this experience with the kids!

The new building is coming along slowly! I expect to be moving in sometime after Easter Break! In the meantime, the fences being down and the upper black top being open for play has been exciting!
