First Week of 5th Grade, 2022-2023

Amazing what we accomplished the first week. Students showed such maturity and by day three, they had flexible learning in place, in which there is no assigned seating. We got through several math lessons, completed our first Juicy Sentence, and even did a Pro Se Court. Moreover, we created the conditions for a really strong community.

Phew! A Full Week of Instruction without Delayed Starts and Snow Days

We made it through the week without a delayed start or a snow day–not a small thing since returning from break. This meant a chance to connect multiplication of fractions to work with decimals, a deeper look a the the causes of the American Revolution, preparation for our move to flexible seating, and a thank you note writing for over 20 donations made to our classroom!

Ending the Year with a lot of Fun and Learning

We packed a lot into our last week of school in 2016. We had our classroom holiday celebration, auction, white elephant book exchange, Polar Express presentation, beeswax candle making, and we even found time to watch a movie. All of the aforementioned did not get in the way of making sure we also learned a lot including more work with fractions, a careful study of theme and point of view, and a project based learning task in which students constructed their own Maker Space.

What we were able to accomplish in 2016 proved pretty amazing and I look forward to what we do in 2017.

Welcome to Room 360!

Welcome. This site will serve as launching pad for the work of Room 360. There is not much here now, but as we move through the school year, we will be adding your ideas and things you have created.

Take some time to look through the website. I will be sending you postcards and emails with login information so you can get a head start on 5th grade. While you wait, explore.

Parents, use the parent tab to locate information that will help your child be successful in 5th grade and in Room 360. I will be adding materials and links over the summer and through the school year.
