Sorry we have been away so long. However, the students have been working on their own "Choose Your Own Adventure" stories. These were challenging to write and get onto our blogs, but lots of fun as well. Look for them on some student blogs soon.
Also, we started a new unit in math--geometry!! Like most things in 5th grade it is also challenging but interesting. In order to study polygons we made shape billboards with a question. Check out my example. Who will be the first to reply with the correct answer?
