September 13, 2019 – 5th Grade Teacher’s Notes
I know I say this every week, but we had another great week in fifth grade! Be sure to ask your student about our Science experiment from this week. (Also see the table talk pictures.) We enjoyed walking around the school looking for different surfaces to test the effect of the surface on the bounce height of a tennis ball. The students made great observations and predictions! It is fun to hear them think like a scientist!
Things to know:
QFE: The kick off for QFE is Thursday. If you are needing to RSVP for this event, please contact Sarah in the office. As leaders of the school in 5th grade, we are blessed with the opportunity to serve at this event. It is a wonderful learning experience for the students.
