Today was our fifth grade field trip to the Compton Family Ice Area at Notre Dame.  Every student got on the ice and had a great time!  Our picnic lunch was delicious, and our recognition ceremony was memorable!  What a great second to last day!!

Today was "Show What YOU Know" time!  Students took the Chapter 9 test today.  All journals and class materials can be kept at home.  We will not need them the rest of the week.

We finished A Young Patriot today.  After our discussion, I showed students pictures of a recent trip to Boston.  The history of that city makes so much more sense after studying it!
