Grade 5

Week of December 10th – 14th

Hi Grade 5 Families!

Happy 2nd week of Advent!

We had a great week of learning! We did our Cookie Mining Experiment and learned some new mathematical and reading strategies! Have a look on ClassDojo for some pictures and videos! This week, we have a lot to look forward to as we continue to prepare for our Christmas Concert!

Our featured image this week is our Advent Art displayed in the downstairs hallway! We each reflected on a Bible passage related to the Birth of Jesus and created an illustration based on it! Together, the various pieces became a part of the Christmas Tree and Advent Wreath!
