Room 25 ~ Grade 5January 27, 2023
January flew by! What a great month of learning for Room 25.
In Readers and Writers Workshops we are shifting gears to fiction, primarily realistic fiction! Our mentor text is, “Holes” by Louis Sachar. Students are showing their deep thinking by discussing the author’s choices, and implementing similar choices in their writing!
In Math students completed the unit on perimeter and area, and we will be exploring fractions next. One of our math problems regarding area and perimeter had students using their problem solving skills to find the area and perimeter of a mystery shape. It was a hands on challenge that all students were able to find success in.
Way to go!
Keep up all your hard work Room 25!
