This week was a doozy! We all had a wonderful winter break but are glad to be back in school. It was a fun packed week!
This week PYP was a blast. We finished up our research on our topics (Animal extinction, invasive species, deforestation, climate change and coral reefs). We started making our slideshows and speeches. It was really hard!!! One group only had 2 people!!! But we all had to present it either way.
In math, the first thing we did this week was reviewing. Over the extended winter break we kind of forgot math. So we did some reviewing. We looked over our old testes and corrected them. But sooo many people didn’t do their homework! Maybe 5/24 of the class did their homework! But now we’re getting back into the swing of things.
Over winter break we took a break from school AND reading now we are getting back into the habit of reading again. Since we have OBOB battles coming up, the 5th grade is reading hard.
This week in writing we have finished up our Rat articles and are ready to print them. The people who are done have free writing time where you write any genre of writing that they want. We choose to write this. The new year brings lots of fun new things! But it also rings great new writing ideas! I bet everyone is bursting with ideas from the winter break! Till’ next week!
