View Obama's Inaugural Address!
Here we are making FANTASTIC Gingerbread houses :)
Hello everyone and welcome back! This week will be a short four day week starting off with some MAJOR EXCITEMENT! President-elect Barack Obama will become President Obama at 9:00 am. The teachers in F Pod have set up the room so that all fifth graders will get to watch the inauguration tomorrow morning!
We'll be studying some famous inaugural speeches this week-- and each student will get the chance to discover for themselves the history behind each inaugural speech. At the same time, we'll continue to answer questions that we have about Martin Luther King, Jr., the man whose birthday we are celebrating today.
In science, the class will be continuing to do tests on their stream tables modeling the connections between land and water. Kids already know the terms water cycle, erosion, and deposition. If there are any parents who do work in the field (Seattle City Light, Puget Sound Energy, construction, etc), please let me know.
I hope that everyone is working on Study Island when they get the chance! There is time to work on the reading portion during center time, but there is also a math assignment this week that I would like for students to work on at home.
Cheers!!! -Ms. V.
