Moving...'s hard to believe, but we're almost to the end of first quarter! Fifth grade has been going well. Every day is truly an adventure in our room, but in a good way. These kids keep me busy and running all day as is the life of a teacher. We're several months in and I've hardly touched the blog this year. I guess keeping up more than 1 classroom site is more than I can handle. Our new website is up and running over at Team Gentry. If you'd like to keep up with what's going on inside of our classroom please visit us there. I may be back to blogspot eventually, but for now I'll be concentrating my efforts over at the new site!

Aaaaaand We're Off!

The school year is underway and we are off to a great start! I have a lovely bunch of 5th graders that I am looking forward to working with and getting to know better. We have already been hard at work reviewing place value and expanded notation in math, studying new spelling words, reviewing the 4 types of sentences, learning new vocabulary words, and writing fictional stories. It has been a whirlwind these past few days, but we are beginning to settle into our schedule. Our group this year is very spirited, outgoing, TALKATIVE, and very sweet. I am looking forward to letting the students do some reporting on our blog and keeping it up to date.

It's Almost Time!

One week from today I will get to meet my new 5th graders! I'm so excited to get to know my students and for all the adventures and challenges teaching a new grade level will bring. I've been hard at work at school for the past 2 weeks and am happy to report it is finally starting to resemble a classroom as opposed to a storage room! I can't wait to see what this school year will bring and will be keeping you updated on all the fun!

We Made It!

Congratulations! We made it another year. We had a great last day! We used shaving cream to practice cursive while cleaning our desks, we had a newspaper snow ball fight with the other 2nd grade classes, we ate lunch outside, started working on our memory books, and cleaned out our desks. I hope that everyone has a wonderful summer filled with lots of fun and memories. Don't forget to read every day! :) Here's to a wonderful 2nd grade class and an exciting summer to look forward to!

We had a fun field day last Friday! We played all kinds of games like: kickball, ring toss, dress up relay, 3 legged race, free throw contest, and water balloon toss. We also got to enjoy popsicles! Thanks to Mrs. Boehme and Mrs. Crews for organizing our fun day!

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall!

Ms. Jackson dropping her class' projects off the top of the bleachers.

The second grade classes had a great time doing the egg drop last Friday!

Our class had 13 students participate.

 We had 7 egg projects that stayed intact throughout the big drop. 

 Others were not so lucky. :(
There were some very creative ideas ranging from using bubble wrap, to Styrofoam, to marshmallows for padding!  I loved seeing everyone's project and getting to drop them off the bleachers! Thank you to all of the families that participated!
