After Thanksgiving break, the 5th grade team will be changing a few things so as to address the most needed skills to be mastered before the next Galileo and AIMS testing. I will be teaching a new computer based reading program called "Reading Plus" and writing. Mrs. Fabio will teach Science, Social Studies and small group Math, Mrs. Soto will still be Math, and Mrs. Dickinson Reading.

We will be wrapping up our Social Studies unit on Colonial America this week. As such, we will have a colonial food activity on Tuesday to to see, feel, touch and also taste what the colonial children ate as they were growing up in the colonies.
Students were ask to bring something to share if they can. All items must be store bought, and only things that the colonists ate. (Things from our colonial list of food items)
- Pies (pumkin or fruit)
- corn bread (bread of any kind)
- Water, milk, apple cider or orange juice ( only Juice of any kind)
I do appreciate all your support for our students and you are welcome if you can to our classroom anytime.
