Today we started our new reading/writing units. We are focusing on inventors and entrepreneurs. Today we discussed what it means to invent something, patents, and what it means to be an entrepreneur. We then watched an episode of ABC’s hit show, Shark Tank! The episode we watched was with Stamford’s own Ryan Kelly! Ryan Kelly is now in 7th grade in Stamford but was a student of Casey Cummings at Westover school when he appeared on the show. Ryan will be coming to Springdale on Tuesday after vacation to talk to our 5th graders about his invention and the process he had to go through to do it. Please see the link below to view his website and watch his Shark Tank Episode.
Math assessment on unit 8 will be Friday. Study link to go home tomorrow night.
