The kids spent their first three years at Gomm using this as a music room. I’m doing my best to make it the best possible learning space for 3rd grade outcomes. Although still a work in progress, I am confident it will be ready for kids beginning August 6th.
I cleaned out my classroom and moved everything into my new 3rd grade room.
I’ve loved my two years in 5th and I am looking forward to new challenges and opportunities in the coming academic year.
We finished the year with a burst. We completed our study of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Nights Dream, a full unit on sound, multiple opportunities to identify claims, evidence and reasoning in informational text and the elements of plot in narrative (exposition, rising action, climax, and falling action.) We “stepped-up” to sixth grade with mini investigations of negative integers, area of parallelograms and right triangles, and finding rate. We also moved through several inquiry activities including Youcubed.org in which we learned about conjectures. In other words, we ended the year the way we started it, by working hard.
