CLASSROOM NEWS - Updated on 12/5/19ENGLISH/LANGUAGE ARTS (ELA)
Our current read aloud is Among the Hidden by Maragret Peterson Haddix. It is the first novel in The Shadow Children series.
We started our first class novel study, Night of the Spadefoot Toads, by Bill Harley. The 5th graders are working on an expository research report on a geographic region of the world, just like the class did in the novel. The kids chose the regions they wanted to learn about.
This week's spelling word study is based on the holidays:
- candy cane
- New Year
The 5th grade is working on a fractions unit.
The class is finishing up the Geographic Region Reports. We have kids are doing Google Slides, diaramas, posters, or tri-fold brochures for their regions.
We have been working with Mrs. Zimmerman's Kindergarten class on Thursdays after lunch recess.
We spent a few days coming up with our classroom expectations...
