Welcome to 5-2

Week of 5/11-5/15
What's happening in 5th grade?

Looking for a bit of parent help...Spring has Sprung! With warmer weather comes more activities and commitments after school. Today several students expressed that they would be too busy to do any homework this evening due to various commitments. We are looking for parent support as schedules get busy to help students strike a balance so that homework can be completed. Thank you so much! 


Writing Homework for 5-2:

Please finish the activity we started in class today- Go to the Blendspace (Last link on my links page) and click on the first box. Go to the Scholastic Writing Website- Click on Myths- Jane Yolen- and read her tips and advice for Myth Writing. Answer the guiding questions that you wrote down in your Writer's Notebook. You will need this completed so we can share ideas during class tomorrow!
