Welcome to Mrs. Whitaker’s 5th grade class. I am so excited to be back in the classroom and 5th grade is my favorite class to teach. 

Since the beginning of school, in math, we have learned that volume equals length x width x height. Volume was a struggle for us all, but we will get better!! Right now we are multiplying and dividing fractions. I think the students like fractions better!

Science has been fun for us all. We have made oobleck, slime and figured out how high we could jump on the moon and other planets.  Wyatt Dejager brought in mini pumpkins and a big container.  We are watching the pumpkins decompose.  Hopefully the pumpkins will sprout in the spring and we can plant them in the garden and have pumpkins in the fall.
