We are officially back to business in 5th grade!

We were excited to see that the workbook fairy stopped by school and delivered the rest of our Spelling and English workbooks. Now we are only waiting on math workbook delivery and we'll be complete. Until then, photocopies will be provided.
The Wolfgang assembly to kick off the fundraiser was yesterday. Mrs. Knobloch spoke with the students about good selling practices and showed off some neat prizes. She also had 2 volunteers demonstrate the powers of the famous "money machine." You should have heard all the "ohhs and ahhs."
Note-taking in our copybooks is off to a good start. Cursive is to be used in copybooks and we work on maintaining neatness by taking our time and using rulers for lines. The students are doing well so far with their school and classroom jobs and I'm proud of how many of them have adapted so quickly to 5th grade rules and responsibilities.
Remember, our class is planning and practicing for school liturgy next week. Please join us if you are available. Mark your calendars now: our class mass will be Friday, October 11. This will be in the chapel. Also, check out our 5th grade page on the school website from time to time and I try to update at least once a week - sometimes with photos of our work/activities. There are pictures from Religion class on Wednesday.

Wednesday: Reading WLT #1 (Weekly Lesson Test - Students may use the text to complete these comprehension/vocabulary assessments)
