Last week of school – Free post May 22, 2011
This week a blog post is not required – HOWEVER :-), if you want to post, you may post on anything you would like! I am going to miss all you of very much – especially considering I won’t be in a classroom, with my own homeroom next year. You all are my last class (for now) and I am going to miss you very much!
Best Part of 5th Grade – Last Blog :-( May 15, 2011
Well class, this is it! We are on our last blog of the year and I CAN’T believe it! This year has flown by and I am amazed that we are in the last two weeks of school! This is going to be our last blog post . This week I would like you to tell me the BEST thing about 5th grade. What is the one thing that you LOVE? Also, is there any advice that you would like to pass along to 4th graders right now?
This has been a great year and I hope you all come back to see me next year. I can’t believe all of you will be in 6th grade next year. I know you are ready! You all will do great in 6th grade and I know you are ready for the freedom that comes with 6th grade and I also know you are ready for the responsibility! You all will be GREAT and I will MISS you!
What would you change? May 8, 2011
Looking back on your fifth-grade year if you could change anything, what would you change? You may choose anything you would like to change, but remember to be kind and not make me cry! Also, support your reasons with evidence. Finally, don’t just say, “I wouldn’t give any homework.” Remember it is my job to prepare you for 6th grade and I have to prepare you for homework. Truly, I want to hear what you have to say – so this is your time to state your opinion!!!!
Email May 1, 2011
This week I want you to spend some time thinking about how you use email and if you think it is wise for someone your age to have an email account. I want you to think about how you use words and how you communicate in your post. Do you think when you are speaking to someone verbally, you communicate well? Do you continue to communicate well when you are emailing friends, or do you just put whatever comes to mind? How do you think is positive about someone your age having email and what do you think is negative?
Remember your post should be at least 8 sentences and you should comment on a friends post.
Constructive Forces April 24, 2011
This week I would like you to explore this website and then come back and tell me how you think volcanoes could be a constructive force, that is a force that builds up the earth’s surface! Be very detailed and try to use big science words in your response :-). I am sure you could use some of the words we learned about the earth’s structure in your answer. Be sure to comment on a friends post!
