5th Grade Research Writing!

We have been hard at work, learning how to write a research paper.  We started our research unit by writing an entire paper together, as a class.  In Mrs. Wurthmann’s class, our topic was Hurricanes.  In Miss Messina’s class, the topic was Tornadoes. Once the group research project was completed, each student chose his/her own topic to research and write about.  The students are doing a terrific job, and are well on their way in the writing process.  We can’t wait to read their final drafts!

Multiplication Madness

The fifth grade just began Unit 4 in mathematics. This consists of multiplying decimals and fractions with whole numbers. We look forward to teaching 5th graders how to solve these equations using ratio tables, partial products and standard algorithm!
