Last Day in Grade 5!

What an amazing year with truly awesome people. There are changes ahead for all of us.....our Grade 5s are leaving our school to move on to middle school and I will be teaching Grade 1 next year! When I announced my grade change to my class, a student said, "You will be great with the little ones, but you better get some Grade 1 jokes, they're never going to get your Grade 5 jokes!" I will have to add that to my summer to-do list.

Saying goodbye.....
to our Grade 1 little buddies.
This year has been filled with lots of laughter, fun and learning. I want to thank everyone for making it so special. The students warmed my heart as I saw them showing kindness to others, working out problems, and being excited about their learning. Thank you to the parents for the continuous support and encouragement throughout the year. It is a privilege to work with your children every day. I will miss teaching with my grade partner, Ms Wasney, who has become a close friend. We will still be doing many things together at BHS so that is a bonus!

As a student said as we were waiting for the bell, "It's the last day of Grade 5 for all of us, even Mrs. Tresoor!" This is true, which means I will be signing off on this blog since I can't figure out how to make "5T Room 30" work when I will be teaching Grade 1 in room 2. Thanks to those of you who have visited and commented on our blog. We really appreciated knowing our learning and adventures were being shared with others.

Have a safe, fun-filled summer everyone!! I will keep you posted on the new blog with my Grade 1s.
- Mrs. T :)

Good luck next year! You will be missed.

Grade 5 Farewell

Today we had our farewell for the grade 5s leaving our school. It was an exciting time to spend with family and friends. Thanks to everyone for coming out to share in this special day with us. It is hard to believe that the year has already flown by. We are so proud of all of you and what you have accomplished during your time at BHS. We know you will continue to do great things. Here is a video of some of the highlights from our celebration. Thanks Ms Wasney for sharing your photos!

Field Day!

Today we had field day. It is for the whole day. In the morning the grade 5s ran the stations, and in the afternoon the grades 6s run them. There are 30 stations. I ran the mat maze with Alyssa and Brenda. Today it only rained a bit. My favourite station was long rope skipping.  We did all our stations in the afternoon. It was best day ever!!!!!

Variety Showcase and Cross Grade Activity

We had a Variety Showcase yesterday. I played my guitar, Mikayla played the piano and Hailey did her hoops routine. I had to practice a lot. I played the song Dirty Deeds. We had to play in front of the whole school and the parents. I felt a little bit scared. I think I did good. All the performances were really good.

Our whole school read with their little buddies yesterday. We had popsicles first and then we read. My little buddy read Fantastic Planet. We read with our buddies a lot. My buddy has improved so much. I can tell just by the books she is reading.

A Grade 5 Reflection

Wow what an amazing year in 5T I don’t know where to start. There are so many things I enjoyed about 5T but one of my favourites is the smartboard. The smartboard is so cool you can do almost anything with it. We suggested they make smartpapers. Another thing I liked about 5T is being able to pick our own jobs. I have never been able to pick my job before because usually you just get put on a random job and rotate every week. This year we also got to choose the names for our jobs. The last thing I will mention is switching seating plan every month. I also liked the fact that the students got to pick the plan. Our seating plan was different every month. There are so many more things I can talk about but I don’t have the time.

Madison at the beginning of the year....
My favourite memory of grade 5 is pretty funny. If you don’t know I DON’T LIKE SHOES. So when I finished my first expert project and Mrs. Tresoor asked me if I was going to wear my shoes for the presentation. So I said of course I will it’s an occasion. But then Mrs. Tresoor asked if I would wear fancy shoes so I said I’m not going that far with this shoe thing. Now most of the time I wear my shoes.

Madison with shoes on!
Mrs. Tresoor has taught me a lot this year. These are some things that I never knew about. One of the things I learned was voice tone can mean a lot and how to be kind to everyone. She has also taught me a lot of things I can use in normal life. Like math and other skills.

I am looking forward to a lot of new experiences next year. I am looking forward to going to Robert Andrews. I am looking forward to lockers and different teachers. Also being able to do band. I am looking forward to so much I can’t explain. Good bye grade 5. I will miss Mrs. Tresoor.

This week we did a lot we had a field trip to the science Gallery at the museum. We started with a presentation on chemical and physical changes they used super-duper science powder. It dry’s liquid and makes it a solid. It was a really fun field trip because we were free to do the stuff that we wanted. We could wander around the whole thing and do anything in the gallery. It was really fun.

We also did this art with the art teacher Mrs. Kulyk. We worked with an interesting art materiel. The material was clay and that was a really neat thing. My clay pot looked like a unicorn got blended together with a tellatubby. I liked it is for my dad to hold his pens in. That it is why it is shaped like a cave.

We are doing all kinds of poems. They are really fun. We did limericks. Those are the most fun poems that I think we have done yet. I also liked the list poem that one is really fun.
We started our design projects. We have to make something that will protect you from the sun. Most people are making hats. That is the easiest thing to do so that is what I will do but it will be different.

Most people are almost done there expert projects. I still have to find pictures and type the information. Then I have to put it all together. I think that it will be really good.

Working with Clay

We worked with Mrs. Kulyk on an art project using clay. The first step was getting a chunk of clay and squishing it into a ball. We had to put our thumb inside the ball and move it around to make a bigger hole so it would look like a pot or bowl. There were tools to use to add designs. You had to use some water to smooth it out and to attach pieces to the clay. If you use too much water it will turn to mud. After we were done making the pots they are going to go to the kiln at Robert Andrews School to be fired. When they are done they will look reddish and be solid as cement. We can’t wait to see them. They will look so amazing! They will be special gifts for .........?

Science Gallery Field Trip

Today our class went on a field trip to the Manitoba Museum. We had a great time learning about science and having fun playing the amazing little science games. First we went into a room behind the curtain, we learned about chemical and physical changes! The guy that was helping us was named Sean. He showed us some neat experiments… One of them involved a diaper! Also one of them involved a rocket, sort of…  After that we got to explore the science gallery! Two of the things me and Brooke liked were… I liked the Mirror maze/room. Brooke liked the movie maker. There are two other things I liked were the pulley chairs and the space simulator etc. It was super fun!

Falcon Cam

CBC Manitoba Falcon Cam is Live and we want you to be part of it.
Since 1989, a pair of endangered Peregrine Falcons has been nesting on the Radisson Hotel in downtown Winnipeg.  Beginning 2006, CBC Manitoba, the Radisson Hotel and the Peregrine Falcon Recovery Project (Manitoba) have collaborated to provide Manitobans with the opportunity to observe each year’s family of Peregrines on the Falcon Cam. The #CBCFalconCam is also fully equipped with audio so your classroom can follow all of the sights and sounds of the falcons.

Log on to here from now until the end of July to watch our live Falcon Cam and add your comments.  Watch the baby falcons from the day they hatch to the day they fly away from the nest box for good.

CBC Communications

The mother falcon is sitting on 4 eggs which will be hatching very soon!
