This week we set goals for our remaining semester of 5th grade in an activity I called "School Year's Resolutions". Thinking about what we can do to make the most out of our remaining time is very important, I think that each goal set by the students will give them a focus and objective to take them through May.
In math, we have continued our study of decimals. The students are becoming proficient in adding and subtracting decimals. We are also continuing with the Rocket Math program. We have students who are reaching the end of the multiplication objectives and beginning to move on to their division objectives.
In social studies, we've began looking at early colonization of the United States. We've already learned about the lost colony of Roanoke and Jamestown.
Winter weather is upon us, be on the look out for snow days in the coming weeks. Stay warm and safe 5th graders!
