1st Day of School!

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! We have a lot to look forward to - hard work, great academic strides, exciting units of study, the 5th grade camping trip, and elementary school graduation. Wow! Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves...
Today is a very exciting day. Our class will spend a good deal of time preparing for the school year in terms of what to expect, reviewing and refreshing our minds for the 5th grade year, and getting to know one another.
Our first homework assignment is the Brown Bag Biography. Students are to collect 5 items that represent them, and put them in a brown bag (or any other bag). They will then write one sentence describing why that particular item is important to them, or represents something important. Students will have a chance to present the items from their bag in front of their classmates this week.
Here we go!
