These 5th Graders have been super interested in renewable energy and how humans impact the earth. We were lucky to have Paul Kimmel from Avista speak to 5th and 4th grade about Avista's renewable energy efforts and answer questions!

Happy Valentine's Day! Last week the 5th graders decorated bags and wrote notes to their classmates expressing things they appreciate about one another. They were so excited to share their notes and give little gifts of appreciation to each other!
Mr. Nealon has been working with the 5th Grade during our math and ELA sections since the beginning of the year. This morning he led a lesson about word problems. Good job Mr. Nealon, and good job 5th Grade!
Just like that, break is over and we are back on our way! This is a goofy photo from our Treats, Traditions, and Texts party the Friday before break. This class went above and beyond with their research for informational texts and sharing of their traditional holiday foods. We had such a fun time.
This week the class worked on a project called "Poinsettia Math." They created poinsettias with petals filled with decimal multiplication problems, and leaves showing how to model decimal multiplication. They turned out great!
There is never a dull day with this goofy class! :) They have really been enjoying the snow, and they are looking forward to the break that comes with it!
The finished classroom door! The students worked together to come up with the design, and created each piece almost entirely by themselves, The candy cane includes all sorts of holiday and winter greetings. What a creative and hardworking class!
