LAC - Mrs. Rhonda Blanchette
Welcome to Grade 5 Language Arts, Science, and Health!
In Langauge Arts, we work on Reading and Writing using a variety of strategies that include: Daily 3, CAFE, Words Their Way, and Empowering Writers. Our current writing unit is called "Wild Weather" and focuses on expository and narrative writing. We will also be looking more deeply at poetry in the coming weeks.
The students are currently completing constuction of Electric Race Cars. Once they are all done, they will be racing them through the halls of the school! That is the final part of the unit called "Mechanisms That Use Electricity." Our next unit is called, "Weather."
The students are currently working on the program called, "FRIENDS for Life." Students learn to identify causes of anxiety, and strategies for dealing with it. We work on a new session each week and will have a celebration at the end of the program.
