Many exciting things happened this past week!
On Wednesday, Tim Kelly, the TV weatherman from NECN came to visit our 5th grade. He gave a fascinating presentation about weather. One of the highlights of Mr Kelly’s talk was when he blew up a balloon and let it go. Everyone tracked the balloon as it demonstrated what happens when high pressure and low pressure interact. Mr Kelly was very entertaining and informative. We will check his forecasts regularly.
In Math we played Review Jeopardy to get ready for the chapter 7 test. Thursday, May 3, was National Wear 2 Different Colored Shoes Day. Many 5th graders participated. In Reading we finished the book The Graduation of Jake Moon and we are about to begin reading Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson. This book is timely because we are learning about the Revolutionary War in Social Studies. It will be interesting to read about characters involved in that historical period.
