We are off to a great start. Our 5th graders are learning routines and expectations. They have embraced the idea that we are a family in Room 51 and will help each other achieve our goals.
They have already completed their first summary on Sumatran rhinos and are reading a story about a boy from Ghana who starts a prosperous chicken farm. I love the enthusiasm for learning and our class discussions are so engaging. We have reviewed Place Value and the relationship between numbers in our Base Ten number system. They really get it!! Now we will learn how to compare and round decimal numbers. Our 5th graders are really stepping up to being our school leaders. I see them growing every day.
