We had a great week here in 5th grade! Very productive and we accomplished much! The kids really had a great time at the Race for Education today. It was a bummer that after all the gorgeous, sunny weather we had this week that today was rainy, but we made the most of it. They are still debating who ran the most laps. And most are still working on getting our heart rates back down. We got back to school just in time to do 5 fraction division problems - which the class is doing great with by the way - and then off to lunch! This afternoon, we spent time tidying up the classroom, playing games in the computer lab, and then Art.
Next week starts 2 weeks of testing. Please make sure your child gets plenty of rest, has a good breakfast, and comes to school ready to go. We will spend 3 days working on COGATS next week and all 5 days the follow week with IOWAS. I have sharp #2 pencils ready to go. They are just waiting for kids to use them to fill in all of those little bubbles! Please try to make sure we don't have any late arrivals as it would be great if we could all stay together during the testing. Most testing will take place from 8:45-11:30. We will attempt to continue regular work, but in limited form.
Wednesday: Religion Ch 17 Test
Friday: Fraction Division Quiz
We will continue with the next Spelling List #23, but will not be tested on it until the 26th.
37 days of school left! Summer vacation is in sight!
Have a nice weekend!
