       On Monday, we worked on our Google book reports and signed up for career day. Monday also began "Spirit Week" at HMS. We continued working on our own personification poems too. Monday was 'Hipster' day for spirit week and we saw some pretty hipster looks! 
    On Tuesday, we practiced finding character traits with proof and quotes from our books.We are preparing a Google presentation of our books and comparing characters is one of our pages. We also, started decorating the fifth grade halls to look like Paris, France to compete with the 6th grade Tokyo, 7th grade Hawaii, and 8th grade New York halls. It was also  Wacky hair day.
      As Wednesday rolled around, we had our second human development class and started a small unit on "verbs." We started our verb lessons with a fun you tube clip to get us up and moving..."action." Mrs. Rollins also danced the "Sly Shuffle" with us. It was Clipper 'Blue and White day."
      On Thursday, we started learning about linking and helping verbs. These proved to be a little harder to understand as some words can be helping and linking verbs. We also had our final day of human development class...Glad that's over! It was "look-a-like" day.
      As the week came to an end, we took our Wordly Wise test and everyone did a great job! It was wear your sweats day for spirit week! We then ended the week with decorating our hall with a bunch of fancy decorations and it was like you walked into Paris with the blooming flowers and poodles! This was a fantastic much fun! We cant wait to get back!!
