The 5th graders have just completed part 1 of Watership Down and hopefully have begun to understand why this is my favorite book of the year. We have already begun our discussions around foreshadowing and theme. We are focusing specifically on the following five themes throughout the book: 1) what makes a place a home, 2) the importance of trickery, 3) the necessity of adapting, 4) what makes a strong leader, and 5) the purpose of “government.” This book will take us through the remainder of the year and will culminate in a final assessment, as well as a final essay.
We have entered our unit on Ancient Rome. All students present for class today, Monday, April 26, received their new books, The Story of Ancient Rome. Please remind your fifth grader to carry the book in a zip-lock bag for protection, so future students can enjoy reading a well-preserved copy. As always, I encourage parents to look over the books for your own appreciation of that era.
The chapter 13 science test on energy and energy transformations will be on Thursday, May 3rd. I will send home the study guide a few days before the test for the students to have the chance to study.

Since there was no school on Monday, April 16th. The chapter 15 science test will be on Thursday, April 19th.
