Welcome to 5th grade!
This weather is surely keeping it interesting in Delaware! Our 5th grade friends here at Shields Elementary are doing the same. We can always count on these kiddos to keep us on our toes....or our feet! Standing ovations are in order for the performances by all who performed in our annual show, "Annie". Additionally, we applaud our Odyssey of the Mind students who performed for us on Wednesday. We wish you the best of luck with your competition!
This week in ELA, students focused on dialogue and how this narrative technique can add voice and detail to their writing pieces. Students were given a comic strip, such as Peanuts, and were asked to create a narrative from this storyline. In addition, we spent a great deal of time discussing the difference between revising and editing. We focused on how we can use the growth mindset attitude to continually improve upon our work. During this time of year, it can be difficult for students to remain focused and continue to give their best effort due to "spring fever". Please continue to motivate your student to consistently put their best foot forward! We appreciate your support.
Have a wonderful weekend!
