Kids “traveled” to 6 different countries to learn about the holiday traditions there. They learned about Los Posada’s in Mexico, Enlightenment Day in Italy, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Advent in Germany and Christmas in Holland. After learning about the traditions, they played a game, tasted a food or made a small craft.

Several LETORT girls participated in the Girls On The Run 5K on Saturday! They were pumped up for a good run on a cold morning! 🙌
Today students in Mrs. Moyer’s math class used their understanding of multiplying decimals to determine prices and payments in “donut shop” situations. The students earned their trip to the “donut shop” by successfully completing problems in the activity. Yum!
Both 5th grade classes will have a Science Test next week. Students have received study guides for this LAST WEEK. Please make sure that students are studying and know the vocabulary words. I’ve attached the study guide and an additional resource that we have used in class that would be helpful study tools as well.
Today, students had the opportunity to practice the skill of adding and subtracting decimals. They had to work together as a team to solve equations and put together a puzzle to create a hexagon. Wow! What an amazing job they did!!
5th graders will be having their Ch. 5 Math Test on Friday. This chapter is rounding decimals, estimating sums and differences with decimals, and adding and subtracting decimals. We also learn about the addition properties (Commutative, Associative, and Identity property) and learn how to use them to justify the steps in an addition problem.
