This contest is for any student interested in participating. Last year, I had a 5th grader who placed! We went to the San Diego County Office of Ed. to celebrate and honor her! It was loads of fun! I encourage everyone and all to participate!
Yesterday and today our class had the opportunity to work with Mr. Evans on examining narrative structure and character traits while using our bodies. Yesterday our class was introduced to the concept of an Actor's Toolbox. After, they learned how to show conflict and dialogue, and demonstrate character traits through voice and body language. Today they had the opportunity to read a Native American legend and act it out in groups.
We have our Chapter 1 Math test on Friday. Tonight's homework, Wednesday's homework, and Thursday's homework will be a full chapter review. The test is set up the same way the review is.
Basketball and Push-Ups
This week our class was with Mr. Goldenberg for P.E. Their focus this past week was on building upper body strength in order to be successful in doing push ups. Push ups are one of the activities that we will be tested on for the Physical Fitness Test (PFT). Our class also learned how to play basketball.
