Write a letter to next year’s fifth graders about your experience in fifth grade. Offer advice on how to have a successful fifth grade year. If you have a younger sibling at Peters, you can address your letter to your sibling. Scan or take a picture of your handwritten letter and send it to us so we can give it to a future fifth grader (or your sibling).
Read The Mysteries of Harris Burdick. Write a story that goes along with one of the pictures. Use the prompts to help you brainstorm ideas for your story. Be sure your story explains both the picture and its caption.
Watch/listen to The Stinky Cheese Man by Jon Scieszka. Then, write your own “fairly stupid” fairy tale and send it to us.
Think about your time at Peters. Write some reflections of memorable events from any of those years. We will share these during our Zoom meeting on Wednesday.
Read the article, Is Playing Video Games a Sport? Make a Venn diagram to compare and contrast sports and video games. Try to include at least five facts in each section of the diagram. Then, write a paragraph stating your opinion.
Read the article, Toys or Treasures? Write at least half a page about your most prized possession. Describe the object and explain how you got it and why it is valuable to you.
Read the article, Is It Good to Be Bored Sometimes? Pick a side and write a paragraph to explain what you think. Is it good to be bored sometimes? Use examples from the article and from your own life.
Read the article, Is Texting Ruining Your Writing? Try writing out a paragraph in text-language (abbreviated words, no capitals, few vowels, incorrect grammar) and then write the same paragraph following all the formal writing rules. Share both versions with someone and ask them to compare. Was one easier to read than the other?
Read the article, Is TikTok Good for Kids? Write a letter convincing your parent (or teacher) of your opinion. Be sure to support your opinion with evidence. You can also post responses in the comments section below.
This is a good time to write a letter to a friend or relative. You are also welcome to write a letter to your teachers. I will write back if you include your return address. You can write to any of your Peters teachers here:
