    We are learning about fractions and decimals. To better understand the relationship and common denominators, we emptied out my grandma’s penny jar. She was a teacher for 30 years and would have been delighted by the learning!! Students sorted the money, stacked the coins, collected the data, and presented their findings. Pictures are on the link above.

 Socktober: Donate Socks!
Did you know that socks are one of the most needed items at shelters? Middleton's fifth grade Leadership Club is hosting Socktober, the annual sock drive. We are collecting socks throughout October and will donate them to a local shelter. Collection boxes are at the school entrance and in Miss Hamachek's room, room 24.   

Hairy and Baldy
     To understand mass, we are weighing two carrots throughout the month of October! Students had a range of predictions, including the mass increasing, decreasing, and staying the same. Stay tuned for more!

Fun Run
     Middleton Mustangs fundraised and ran to support our school! If they meet their fundraising goal, Mr. Wollmuth has to sleep on the school roof. Click above for pictures.

First Day of Fifth Grade!
     We had a team challenge to build the tallest tower. The simple concept had a twist, there were different sizes of cups and the teams received different numbers of cups. Through this competition we realized that we all need different support systems and strategies to successfully make a tall tower. The same goes for learning, we all need different types of support and strategies to be successful learners.
