    Welcome to our fifth grade adventure!  Before you head to middle school, there are many exciting topics we will investigate this year.  Some of our learning experiences will involve endangered animals, government, algebra, and reading strategies such as SQP3R.  Former students of Room 407 will tell you they enjoyed the hard work we put into reading and writing workshop.  They might also recommend to you a few of their favorite Accelerated Reader books!!!  We may just need an entire month to discuss all of these activities, and more!!!
