Mrs. Sirmans' Classes Construct Shelters in STEM Activity

Mrs. Sirmans' shared reading story for the past two weeks has been Tucket’s Travels by Gary Paulson. As a final activity, students had to work in groups using the design process to create shelters. This activity comes from the part in the story where the main character is forced to find shelter in the middle of nowhere for himself and children who are in his care. Like the boy in the story, the students had to use whatever materials were available. The final test was to see if their shelters would withstand high winds. The kids had a blast working together to design, create, and improve their designs.

Welcome to 5th Grade

We have a lot to learn and accomplish throughout the school year, and our expectation is that all of our students will be successful. To ensure this happens good behavior is a priority. We expect students to be respectful and responsible, always try their best and complete all assignments to the best of their ability, cooperate with others, follow directions, come prepared, be organized, and follow our individual classroom rules.

 

 

You can help your child to have a very successful year by:

  • Making sure your student is well rested and nourished when he or she arrives at school.
  • Making sure your child comes to school with the necessary supplies.
  • Talking about school in a positive manner. Be interested in what your child is doing.
  • Letting us know if there are any special concerns or needs regarding your child.
  • Helping your child set up a successful homework routine that works with your schedule. Make sure he or she has a designated time and place, the necessary supplies and adult assistance if needed.
