We are down to the final two weeks of school, and what a year it’s been! The fifth grade students have taken everything in stride and adapted to our online format much more easily than their teacher!
This week, we are sharing our Science Fair projects during our class meetings. We have learned which laundry detergent is best for getting stains out, which Lego car and paper airplane designs travel the farthest, and what substance melts ice the fastest, among other things. The students chose their method of sharing their results, and created informative slide presentations and display boards. I hope to see the display boards in person when we return to school next year.
We have continued with our Book Club meetings over Zoom, and the discussion leaders have risen to the task. The class has continued to read the books and have thoughtful discussions, even though we are not together in person.
This Friday will be Culture Day. We will be celebrating our Spanish program with a large selection of activities for our students to choose from. I encourage everyone to participate, as they all look like a lot of fun!
