20140924_112119I have some things to share with you from Mr. Blue’s class and Mrs. Smith’s class!

This first picture is of Chadie F. She brought in her x-rays to share with the science class. It looks like she may have had a talk with “Mr. Bones” about her broken bone!

Mr. Blue uses AMSTI resources in his class. AMSTI is the Alabama Math, Science, and Technology Initiative.  It is the Alabama Department of Education’s initiative to improve math and science teaching statewide.  Its mission is to provide all students in Grades K-12 with the knowledge and skills needed for success in the workforce and/or postsecondary studies (college and career ready).

It looks like they had fun! Mr. Blue will share more about this as the year progresses.

The following pictures are from Mrs. Smith’s Social Studies project. Each year the 5th grade completes their Native American Unit of Study by making totem poles. They did a great job. Their work is on display in our front entrance.




We will begin Lesson 4 of Unit 1. The text will focus on sequence and determining the meaning of unfamiliar words using the Greek root of the word. Students will be receiving a new Learning Log. These Learning Logs are due the day of the test for a grade. To help your student succeed, review the study notes in the Learning Log and the Practice Book pages that are assigned as homework.

Homework (Reading):  Monday – Learning Log HW page & Practice Book page 31;  Tuesday – Learning Log page & Read Practice Book pages 33 – 34; Wednesday – Make sure to finish the Learning Log page; Thursday – Practice Book answer #1 – 3 on page 35

Mr. Blue’s Science Announcements: Science Test Tuesday; Grading Notebooks on Thursday and Friday

IMG_00385th Grade Leadership Project: The 5th grade has started a project to raise funds for the East Alabama Food Bank. You will hear more about this later in the week. For every $1 we bring in, we can provide 7 meals. How many meals can we provide? Being a leader includes helping others. Help us by donating $1 to our cause. Students can turn in funds during Social Studies class.
