Welcome to Fifth Grade

In the month of October, our class did many fun things.  These are some of the things we did. October is the month of the Rosary, so we started praying the Rosary together everyday.  We also started our scary Halloween stories. We called them our “Boo Bus” stories because the story focused on the Boo Bus. We also made an illustration to go along with our stories.  Around mid-October, we started reading the book Holes.  We took notes, answered questions, and reviewed vocabulary words throughout the story.  

As part of our art assignment in October, we helped our TK buddies with their Halloween art.  We painted bats, ghosts, and pumpkins. It was a lot of fun and I had a great time with my buddies.  For our class art project, we painted silly, scary, and cute monsters based on the picture book How I Met My Monster.  

An important part of October was Kindness/Anti-Bullying Week.  We got Free Dress for one day and made friendship bracelets with our TK buddies.  I learned all about kindness and how important it is. Also, we always have to be kind and respect one another.  On Halloween, we had the annual Halloween Carnival. We got to dress up as whatever we wanted to be. There were lots of cool costumes, but my favorites were the Golden Angel, Marie Antoinette, and Maleficent.  At the end of the month, we turned in our movie poster book report and prepared for our Saints Mass on November 1st. We had a busy October!
