Our annual 5th grade activity, Reading Olympics, is starting next Friday. The students will be participating in the opening ceremonies in school.
All students were sent home with a letter explaining the changes to their reading log this week. Students will also be participating in a variety of Olympic events throughout the month BOTH at home and at school.
Each homeroom will be competing against each other to try to read the most amount of minutes. The class minutes will be tracked in the hallway on a bulletin board all month. The winners of the various events will also be documented there as well. Each student is setting a personal reading goal. Ask them to see the google doc :-) If the class reaches the class goal, there will be a celebration for that class for all members who reached their personal goals.
Feel free to email any of the 5th grade teachers if you have any other questions.
I have been teaching for twelve years, and eleven years in the town of Willington, CT.
