Grade 5

Week of January 25th – 29th

Hi Grade 5 Families,

Last week was short but still filled with fun and learning! We got to explore Google Maps again with a mapping activity and started our Class Novel Study – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Both bring a lot of joy to students, as they love the opportunity to explore the world via Google Maps and the world of Willy Wonka via Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! This week, we look forward to our St. Paul Feast Day Mass and our Zoom call with our D.A.R.E. Officer.

Our featured image this week is of our Weekly Vocabulary. Each week we focus on a different word to help us expand our personal lexicons. Each day they do a quick activity to learn more about it and we do our best to try to include it our language from then on.
