Home Students Classroom Pages Grade 5 - Mrs. Mitchell Jumping into June

Jumping into June

IMG_0117Did this year go as fast as I think it did?  We were so busy learning that it just flew by!  I will miss this class but luckily I'll be their 6th grade Science teacher.

We learned more about all the Sacraments, about Mary and how we honor her through the year, and how our church is one, holy, catholic, and apostolic.  The students are making a "Sacrament Book" using the textbook. They will be cutting out text and pictures that they think are important to convey what is important to them about the sacraments.

They learned about the Scientific Method, the Engineering Design Process, the Classification of different organisms, cells, the human body systems, growth and survival of plants and animals, ecosystems, and weather and climate. They made some really wonderful projects for the bodies systems and for STEM day. It was a very successful year.

The 6th grade was just as busy as they studied the water in our atmosphere which included the oceans, fresh water, and weather.  They explored about Earth, the Moon and Sun and how they are connected to each other.  They delved into the Earth and the forces that make it work.

Spelling was quite the challenge with lots of new and some review words from 4th grade.  Spellingcity was a big help to them especially for their tests on the iPads.  We finished all 30 lessons and the review lessons after every 5 lessons.

The students produced many interesting bookreports monthly that included different genres such as biographies, humor, and historical fiction.

We enjoyed visits with out buddies in 2J.  We are looking forward to a picnic with them on June 3rd.

As you can see fifth grade was a very busy year.  We wish everyone a long relaxing summer to get ready for next year in the 6th grade.
