The fifth graders read mystery novels and created time lapse videos to share their stories.
The fifth graders read Sign of the Beaver and Crooked River. They perfected their summarizing skills and demonstrated excellent group work! Please enjoy their finished products.
Fifth grade is so special. We have many exciting trips, jobs, and responsibilities. You are the leaders and role models of our school. Our theme this year is Choose Kindness. Remember to do this each day!
I loved having extra time to read this summer. My favorite book was One Plus One. No, it wasn’t a math book! It was just one of many books I read as I traveled and lounged at home.
I’d love to hear about your favorite book that you read this summer.

Every year you have been at Willowbrook School you have been thrilled by the amazing projects in the hallway across from the library. You have admired them and considered what your project might be when it was time. You have thought about making a spectacular art project. Oh what fun!
Now you are fifth graders and you and your classmates have created those amazing projects in the hallways. But, this was so much more than an art project! I’m sure you didn’t realize that there was a lot of math and research that came before the visual representation.
Did you encounter any unexpected challenges? What was the hardest part of your project? What did you like best about your work? What would you do to improve your work next time? In what ways did you go beyond what was expected? What did you learn about math doing this project? What did you learn about yourself? What comments would you like to share about the whole experience? Do you have any advice for the fourth graders? Please share.
