The fifth grade prays that this new year is off to a great start for all of you and that you are staying warm during these cold winter months!
It may be cold outside, but that has not stopped with fifth grade from continuing to grow in their academics! Students have been hard at work studying famous people from history by reading a biography in reading class. While reading the biography, students learned about nonfiction text features, distinguished between fact and opinion, and learned to paraphrase information. The fifth graders are taking their knowledge and writing a research paper. They are also using this as the basis for their Soc. Studies Fair projects. They can’t wait to share their knowledge with you!
Students have also been hard at work being detectives in the case of the Boston Massacre. They have evaluated and analyzed primary and secondary accounts to understand the American Revolution.
The fifth graders are also involved in a variety of sports and activities at St. John and in the community. We thank God for the many gifts that He has blessed each of them with and pray that they continue to use them to His glory!
