Great Things are Happening in 5th Grade


Well there are so many great things happening in 5th Grade this year.  We did GREAT on our Reading Assessment from the 1st six weeks and plan to do even better this six weeks.  Our Narrative writing is coming along and we hope to be publishing them within the next couple of weeks.  We have been studying poetry and learning about poetic devices and ways poets use words and sounds in their poetry.   We spent several days on the computers collecting great works of poetry and will be publishing a poetry anthology for our classroom filled with our favorite poems.  We will have an “Open Mic” event on Feb. 1st.  Students will read or recite a poem they have chosen for the class.  This event will be the first of several Open Mic Events I am planning.  In the spring we will have one for parents to attend where students will be reading their original works.

In Math Mrs. Nelson has been drilling them in their facts.  Multiplication facts are so foundational to thier math learning.  Take a moment to DRILL them when you think about it.  They are beginning division so those facts are crucial.  In Science students have been “Mixing it Up” learning to mix solutions and dissolve them.  Have your student practice by dissolving drink mixes or helping mix up solutions for dinner.

Our Wolflin students made the highest scores on the Math Assessment in the Tascosa Cluster!! They did very well on their Science Assessment as well.

Our students have been working hard and displaying qualities of being Leaders of the Pack.  They have earned a reward and will be having a movie party on Friday, November. 8th.  Look for details about this in their Wolf Folders.

Next Week is Red Ribbon Week.  We will be doing some fun things to remind students to SAY NO TO DRUGS.  It is important to instill in students the idea of staying away from drugs and to educate them about the dangers and consequences of drug use.  To celebrate this event we will have different themes and the students are encouraged to dress to reflect the theme.  Here are the week’s events:

Wolflin Red Ribbon Week Events:

Monday, Oct. 28th: We “mustache” you to be drug free!  Wear mustaches or mustache clothing. 

Tuesday, October 29th: You will be, “Happy, Happy, Happy!” if you stay drug free!  Wear Duck Dynasty clothing or camoflauge.

Wednesday, October 30th: Your future will be BRIGHT if you stay drug free! Wear Tie-dye clothing or bright colors.

Thursday, October 31st: Say, “BOO!” to drugs!  Wear Halloween themed t-shirts or black and orange.  NO HALLOWEEN COSTUMES

Friday, November 1st: Pledge to be DRUG FREE for LIFE!  Wear red, white, and blue.

Tuesday at 5:30 in the cafeteria, there will be a 5th Grade parent meeting to discuss 5th grade shirt, fundraising and other plans for our 5th graders final year at Wolflin.

Whew!  I get tired and excited just reading all this great learning and fun.

I will continue to work to improve this blog so check in and see what we are doing.
