One of my favorite quotes is this: “Education is learning what you didn’t even know you didn’t know.” It was written by Daniel Boorstin, and I think it sums up our year together nicely.
We had new topics in science, so there were cool discoveries and realizations being made all the time! And of course orthography took us on fascinating twists and turns in regards to words! It was quite common to hear someone say, “I didn’t know that!” or “That’s so cool. Why didn’t I know that?”
It is always amazing to me how quickly September becomes June! We have shared some really great moments together and made memories that will last. Enjoy this slideshow!
The following film is something I had fun putting together. I believe it embodies the spirit and lightheartedness we have shared this year. Who says grammar has to be boring? Enjoy!
Smiles on the screen for students and for me! Loved watching, thanks for sharing all this year.
I’m sure none of your students will ever forget their fifth grade year! Wish you’d been my fifth-grade teacher! Hope you all have a happy summer!
