Monday 11-7

Students had a small group discussion about their ideas for their service learning project. Students are currently thinking of ideas that they would like to pursue for their project.

By Friday, they will need to complete this assignment artist-dream-big to see if their idea is one that they are passionate about.

Students also took their spelling pre-test 6. The list of words is available in the entry below.

Tuesday 11-8

Students have been fired up about the election since the beginning of the school year. Today, we will be looking at how exactly the U.S. elects presidents. The article that we are using the study this topic is an adapted newspaper article that has been edited to be accessible for 5th grade readers. You can read the article here: electing-a-president

Students will also be learning about finding the main idea in a piece of writing.
