In Social Studies students have been learning about how the United States and early settlers experienced life. Students had the opportunity to make yarn dolls, whirligig, ropes, churn butter, weave, create patterns for quilts, and play charades!

The Rotary Club stopped by Meadow Brook Elementary and delivered dictionaries to each 3rd grader!  These dictionaries are for the students to keep and use at school or home!  Students were so excited that they choose to read their dictionaries during their reading hour!! 

Thank you Rotary Club!!!

Mrs. Gonzalez's class had a fun Halloween Party day. Costumes were fantastic! We played three games, had treats, and completed a cool mask craft.

Our unit of energy wrapped up with building circuits. Now we are investigating waves. We are working on multiplication, and just started some poetry. 

Everyone is reading great books too. This is the BEST class!

Directional science

We have been working on directionality for science! For our first lesson, we tested which way things will move by throwing paper airplanes outside and seeing which direction they would go. It was so fun!

To celebrate Veterans Day, all the 5th graders learned a song called Thank You Military! Ms. Owen's class did a great job singing about how grateful we are for veterans. We talked about the sacrifices they have made for us, and then the 5th graders wrote letters to veterans!
