This week in school young kids are learning how to type with all 10 fingers and fifth graders with have to teach and help the young ones to type correctly on a keyboard. Doing this for young kids will come in really handy when they are older and when they have to do big essays for school like right now in our class we are doing a essay about " Should cell phones be allowed in class. " Right now we are doing research, in a few days we will start the essay and i'm really looking forward for it just like all of the other ones we have done in class. I hope lots of fifth graders will help the younger kids learn how to type the right way using ll 10 of their fingers. I hope everyone does great on their essays. I hope everyone gets A's in class that would be amazing! This is what is stuck with me this week but if you don't know what it is, it's a board with everyone's name on it and we have to write on a small piece of paper and write what stuck in our mind this week in school. I hope everyone has a great week this week and I hope you have an amazing day too! I know that I will.

This week there's gonna be a College scavenger hunt on Tuesday for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. Then on Wednesday it's gonna be the scavenger hunt for 1st and 2nd grade. Some of the colleges were colleges that teachers at South went to. We also are doing this thing where you write on a piece of paper what problems you have. When you are done you put it in the box, and shortly after the student council will respond with ideas to help you out with the problem you have. In math we are multiplying fractions. Since I wasn't here I didn't really quiet get it at first, but I caught up with it.On Friday, like always we have to write on a sticky note what stuck with you this week. I can tell that Mrs. Davis want more details on our what stuck with us this week. This might be a short week, but its still a fun one!

This week we are going to be having our winter MAP testing. We did surveys so what we know is gonna be on the test. We have studied very hard on our math and ELA. Our class is gonna do great. We have been doing subtracting fractions with two step problems. We have been working on the Revolutionary War and we are working on making a news cast. Mrs. Davis split us up into 5 groups. There is gonna be 1 colonist man, 1 british man, 1 reporter, and 1 recorder. These are gonna turn out really good. We are also reading a book called "Among The Hidden" it is book about this boy who lives in a place where the limit of having kids is two. Luke is a third child. He meets a girl, a third child they are shadow children. We are still reading the book though. We are also reading this book called, The Fghting Ground. It is about this boy named Jonathan who wants to go to war in the 17 hundreds but he disobeyed his parents and know is in the war. He has been captured by the Hessians. That is what we are doing this week. It is very busy especially with MAP testing!!!

This week I will not have a full week for being warm fuzzy because on Tuesday and on Friday there is no school but I am okay with that. Any ways I am learning a lot about math so I can use them when I hop on to the next grade. I am also learning a lot about why and how people can vote like for example if you went to a other country and it is time to choose a new present for the United States of America you can still vote. I have also learned that you can also vote on the computer but you cannot just vote you are 18 years old.

So some things that we're doing here at South are starting fractions and science. We started learning about the atmosphere in science and before we learned about the air. In math we finished our Volume and Area unit. It was fun and now we started our fraction unit. We're doing adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators . We also also started red ribbon week by wearing pajamas to school. Tomorrow we are going to wear crazy hair, hats, and or socks. We are going to have a week!

We are going to have a great week in 5th grade.
Two weeks ago we were in White Pines and it was so much fun! We rode and learn how to ride a horse. Another thing in White pines was Field Study. We looked at poison Ivy and rocks from about 3 million years ago. Another thing is we had a lot of fun in free time like in the corn maze we all got lost there and feeding the goats in the critter corral. Next we had Wilderness Survival and that was also a lot of fun. We learned how to survive in the wild and we built a shelter, and our group built a shelter on top of a lake. We learned this wasn't a great idea!
