I never love my country so much as when I attend the Dilworth 5th grade Patriotic Program. This year I was especially touched to hear the stories of our students who immigrated from other countries, to hear 3 verses of the National Anthem, and to see so many photos of the military relatives of our students. Songs and script were inspiring, the student's artwork was superb, and refreshments were delicious. Once again, we couldn't have done it without our fabulous Dilworth students and their families! THANKS!
At the beginning of the day, we traded Valentines. See our creative boxes below?
After our normal math, language arts, science, and music schedule, we had classroom Valentines parties at the end of the day! Thanks for being our party planners, room parents!!!
We survived the speeches, taxes, invoices, checks, deposit tickets, business loan applications and agreements, promissory notes, business licenses, inventory checklists and...
WE WANT MORE!
This is what science looks like!
During our Traits Class, we:
1. did a traits inventory of ourselves including whether or not we could roll our tongues or taste PTC paper
2. classified oak leaves according to their traits
3. observed differences in yarrow plants and hypothesized what could cause those differences
4. made observations about chipmunk adaptations and determined what environment each specimen was best adapted to
5. extracted DNA from pea plants
