5th grade fundraiser

On behalf of the 5th grade team, I want to express our gratitude for all of your support of our fundraising initiatives this year. The supply bags and Frozen Fridays are the two big initiatives , but we will also have several smaller fundraisers later in the year. Just for your information, we are asking our 5th grade families to contribute $400 per student to cover the expenses of all our field trips. The cost per student is closer to $500, but we are committed to offsetting that cost by $100 through our fundraising efforts. We would LOVE to exceed our goal and be able to bring down the cost even further for all of our families. By promoting our fundraising initiatives, you play a big part in our students reaching their fundraising goal. We appreciate you

August 5

We finally had outdoor recess and we were so happy!

We “moon walked” for our morning greeting.

 

Our first show and tell! Students shared about the toy that they brought and students who did not bring in something were given the chance to tell about their favorite toy at home.

After being such good listeners we needed to get some wiggles out.

This is our first IB provocation. A provocation is something that we do at the beginning of a Unit to get students engaged and involved in their own learning. Instead of me telling them we need rules in a classroom for it to work smoothly, we had a chaotic activity and then re grouped and they (emphasis they) came up with ideas on how we need to act in a classroom.

These are our first class essential agreements. A big part of their conversation entered around taking turns (yay).  We will updated our essential agreements as the students grow and see changes that they need to make.

We then read David Goes To School, which has many examples of how not to act in a classroom. It also shows the impact of David’s behavior choices on his classmates.

Important Dates:

  • Tuesday August 7- last day to walk your student to class (our kids are doig a great job of finding their own way to class!)
