We've had a fantastic week in 5V and it's been fun getting to know each other!  Thank you for your attention to the parent forms.  Next week, look for a post more about the logistics of 5V.  In the meantime, here's what we've been up to this week:

  • Played "Guess Who" with 5 facts about ourselves
  • Created "The top 10 things you should know about me" list
  • Completed two teamwork challenges: the card tower and the spaghetti and marshmallow challenge
  • Discussed what works and what doesn't when working in groups
  • Logged on to our Chromebooks for the first time with our new usernames and passwords
  • Visited Digital Passport to begin the conversation about digital citizenship
  • Read The Colors of Us and began sketching self portraits  
  • Listened to There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom by Louis Sachar during read aloud
  • Played category tag with 5S
  • Displayed our artifact museum and learned more about our classmates 
We are off to a great start and I'm looking forward to a wonderful year with your children!  Enjoy the weekend!
