Today in Math we did p. 281 and 283.  It was assigned for homework if not completed in class!

During Language Arts, we completed our Spelling Test and some students finished their Haiku poem.  Others did SRA cards.

After recess we discussed where all the residential schools were located and decided that the nearest one to Hope was All Hallows in Yale.  We then looked at a typical day  for a child in the fifth grade at Residential School.  We compared their day to ours.  What a difference.  We will finish discussing that later, as we ran out of time.

We then did a special project for the upcoming special day.  It is top secret, so I cannot say what the project was!

After lunch we finished up the top secret project, then worked on the LEGOS robots.  We will be getting to programming soon!  There was a little mix up in the kits, so we had to problem solve first.


  1. Permission Slips for the waterslides and for some to go to the District Track Meet
  2. Book Orders are due on Friday
  3. Math p. 281+283

Have a great day!

Cheers!  Ms. Kneller
