Our field trip to PMS is next Wed. I have all permission slips turned in, so this is just a reminder of the upcoming date for you.
We are starting Dancing Classrooms today and I am excited to see how the students' perceptions of it change over time. I think they will end up enjoying their time.

In math class we are working on converting Fractions to Decimals and Percents. This will continue into next week. There may be a test on Friday, but with Dancing Classrooms and the field trip, I may schedule it for Monday. I will post in the 5th grade google calendar after I see how the students are doing next week.
In small groups we have started off the year by writing an opinion essay. I am excited to read what they have to write. We have read through a topic together, looked at both sides of the issue and now the challenge is to pick a side that they agree with more and convince a reader to agree with them.
