The COGAT testing went well this week. We survived 3 days of testing. 5 to go next week. We will be IOWAs testing every morning so please continue to help make sure that your child gets a good night rest, a good breakfast in the morning, and to school on time. I've got a few fun activities planned though the week to help relieve some testing stress that I hope the students enjoy.
This week we dove into the wonderful world of geometry and each student is the proud new owner of a protractor! We've been drawing and measuring angles for a few days now and doing well with it! We've also started the Civil War in SS and the Periodic Table in Science.
Mrs. Scott helped us update the 5th grade page this afternoon by snapping an updated class pic for our "cover" at the top of our page. I figured it was time for the Christmas one to be updated! Check it out!
BIG THANKS for the birthday surprises on my birthday on Tuesday! The students surprised me with balloons, streamers, cards, cupcakes, brownies, flowers, and even an apple! A rendition of "Happy Birthday" even came out in bus line after school! Did you know Pope Emeritus Benedict's birthday is the same day? He is 86 this year. What a whirlwind day it was! Also thanks to you if you helped 'behind the scenes!"
I won't tell you who it was, but what really made me feel old this week wasn't my birthday, but when a student started to tell a story, "Well, a really long time ago....I don't know, I think the 1980's......" etc. I replied with a head shake. Kids....
