In the 5th grade, there are many project-based opportunities to bring learning to life! What my students look forward to the most is our Christmas Around the World Celebration, where they research how different countries celebrate the holidays! Then they work together to create persuasive videos to show their families at our potluck celebration. The 5th graders love their monthly book reports. They have a chance to read novels of different genres and create various projects like dioramas and paper bag summaries. Our big project at the end of the year is our state reports. Students get to work on their informational writing skills to research, draft, and edit their reports. Then they create beautiful displays to showcase at our annual State Fair.
