Thank You

Thanks to Mr. Canada, a former Harlem Globetrotter, for speaking to the class about the importance of education and that success in sports starts with success in the classroom.

May 28-31

Students will begin their common assessment for geometry on Thursday.  Bibiana S., Leanna B., Corbin R., and Destinee R. were all winners in our Geometry BINGO review.

In gym class, we had hula hoop wars.

On Thursday, students will be practicing lockdown procedures as if they were on the playground.

5th graders had their final THINK program.  Students got to meet Sunny and Diesel, police dogs.  They also received football cards.

We got to see fellow Jefferson students perform in the talent show as they prepared for the evening performance.

Students continue to write their informative report on their endangered animal.  The report will be completed early next week. 

We are still trying to figure out the phrase that Ms. Wall is spelling out for us.

Thursday is the last day of the buy 1, get 1 free book sale in the library.

On Friday, Ms. Wall will be duct taped to a wall during lunch because the school met the reading pages goal, 150,000 pages.

Week of May 13

Students were given their iPads on Monday.  We are just getting use to having them and using them in a responsible way.

On Wednesday, the students supported their classmates by respectfully watching the band, orchestra, and chorus concert.  On Thursday, we were able to watch an orchestra concert performed by intermediate school students.

Students completed the post test for Achieve3000.  Many students met their expected growth figured out by the program.

Our word work was based on terms used to describe animals. 

Our final unit in math is geometry.  Students have been activating background knowledge and working with lines and triangles.

During SEL class, students practiced using a combination lock.

Reminder for students that haven't brought in their zoo field trip slip to get that in as soon as possible.

Thursday's Thoughts

It was Junior Achievement Day at Jefferson.  Students learned about the economy and what is needed for a business to succeed.  Different jobs were discussed and how they help a business.  As a way of reviewing, the studens played a game of Jeopardy.  We want to thank Mr. G from the law firm of Foley and Gardner for coming and working with our class.

Students began to review for the measurement common assessment which we will take in the next couple of days.  We began to make posters to help us remember the customary and metric measurements.

We take our final MAPs test on Monday.
