Friday, April 20
Class Gift - Great news! The Gift Committee has confirmed that our current 5th grade class of 2018 will purchase artificial turf to replace the dirt patch between Mrs. Stelter's and Mrs. Felix's classrooms. When finished, this will be a wonderful place for students to read and work on group projects. We are excited to see this eye-sore turned into a spot of beauty!
Math Olympiad Contest Opportunity - Please see the email I sent home on Friday afternoon for details!
5th Grade Roundtable Breakfast - May 9, 7:30 a.m. This traditional event is a favorite of 5th grade students planning to attend MBMS! Six former Pacific students who are now seasoned 6th graders at MBMS will answer questions about life as a 6th grader at MBMS! A light breakfast will be served. Parents are invited to observe.
Photos for Promotion Slide Show - Please read Mrs. Shieh's email about photos for the Promotion Slide show. I hope every family can contribute several photos. This slide show is very important to the students, and every student should have several photos in the show!
Build A Bridge Concert Next Week- Elementary choirs join the MBMS choirs for a performance on April 26th, 6 pm, at the MBMS gym. Rehearsal for the 5th grade choirs will take place the day before, on April 25th, from 3:20 - 5:30. Students should eat their snacks before rehearsal.
What we did today:
Math - We reviewed different ways of classifying triangles. Students also worked to find the volume of composite prisms. Finally, students worked with number lines in preparation for our unit on Coordinate Planes. Students learned about the origin and the meaning of a coordinate.
Social Studies - We completed our discussion of the Battle of Yorktown.
Reading - Students continued to read a nonfiction text and analyze its text features, create a summary, make reasonable inferences, and answer critical thinking questions.
Wordly Wise - Students took the test on Lesson 12.
Writing - Students completed their personal narratives.
Young at Art - We enjoyed a sketching project "Light and Dark" using the photographs of Ansel Adams as inspiration. Thank you, Mrs. Rizika!
