5th Grade Book Club

Adams Elementary is partnering with Project Tomorrow SpeakUp, an online survey for teachers, parents, students and community supporters to provide input around learning, and specifically the use of technology in our school. Please take a few moments and click on the button above to complete the survey. Students taking the survey will need a password, which is wake2014.

The pollinator garden at Adams is bursting with color this fall! This is especially great for the Monarch butterflies, who are making their annual migration to Mexico.  The butterflies need to sip lots of nectar along their journey.  Can you believe these little insects can travel so far? That's over 2,000 miles from Adams Elementary to their overwintering mountain range in Mexico! To learn more about monarchs and their amazing migration, go to http://monarchwatch.org


For the Fall Fabulous 5th Grade Book Club, we read The Giver by Lois Lowery. It was a great celebration with students, their parents and Ms. Albert & Mrs. Hanson. During the discussion, the students and parents brought thoughtful
observation about the book. We discussed
symbolism especially the color red and how
the Giver changes throughout the book. Then we played an exciting and very close scoring
game of Jeopardy! We ended the book club by watching the movie trailer to The Giver and
we have plans to see the movie as a group
in the near future. If you missed out
on the Fall 5th Grade book club, Mrs. Hanson
and Ms. Albert  have plans for a Spring club!
