Happy Monday!

We’ve got a lot of fun planned this week with a VA Rep performance on Thursday and our Veteran’s Day Assembly on Friday.  Students are also gearing up for their first Science Test on Wednesday as we kick off the 2nd marking period.  They have notes on Earth’s layers, the rock cycle, and plate tectonics in their notebooks. You can check out more happenings of the classroom in the latest edition of the newsletter: November 5th.

Also, our class was featured in a short video about Mrs. Heath, as she was recently the Heart of Henrico Winner!  Please check it out here: Mrs. Heath is the Heart of Henrico

Happy Monday!

With one week left in the marking period, we are working to wrap up a few assignments in all subject areas.  Students are working hard on their expository writing prompts as they compare and contrast two rocks.  We are finishing up our study on Henrico County and we are working on our first Literature Circle with Andrew Clements novels.  Check out specifics by reading a copy of this week’s newsletter: October 29th.

A Chill in the Air

There is no doubt that fall has found us here in Glen Allen.  With the cooler temperatures, students will want to bring jackets for our time at recess.  Also, as the marking period comes to an end, anyone with missing or outstanding work will want to complete it and return it to Miss Atkins as soon as possible.  For more information on classroom happenings, please see this week’s newsletter: 1022Newsletter

Happy Monday!

We had a great time meeting the main character and three of her companions as we started The Wizard of Oz last week.  Students did well with their first word study quiz and using the metric tools in science.  We are looking forward to our 5-day week together.  You can check out the latest newsletter by clicking here: Sept 17.  Some highlights include Grandparents’ Lunch on Tuesday, a half-day on Wednesday, and Back to School Night on Thursday.  Hope you have made plans to attend.  Have a great week!

Give Me Five for the Fifth Day of Fifth Grade!

Wow!  We had some fun celebrating our fifth day together with challenging math problems, writing stations centered around the number five, and even a geography challenge learning about our beloved Henrico County.  The 2018-2019 year has started off very well and I’m looking forward to many successes this year.  Please click to see the weekly newsletter for September 10th.
