Fifth Grade News
First Day of School
By: Ayden, Angelo, Nathan C, Anthony
On the first day of school, we were all nervous and excited to meet our new classmates and teachers. Our teacher’s name is Sister Esther and we all enjoyed her. All of us saw all the new students in our school. We all like how our items were arranged, and how the schedule was. We were excited to be with Mr. Calma in P.E. and have a new subject, Spanish.
In the morning after Sister Esther talked about classroom rules and her expectation of us, we covered our journal book for everyday reflection on the Gospel reading. All our teachers did not give us homework on that day. After the end of our first day, we all were happy and thanked God for the new year.

In fifth grade, we have learned about the Old and the New Testament. In the Old Testament, examples are the Creation Story, Joseph and His Coat, Daniel and the Lions, David and Goliath, and more. We watched videos abut all these topics, discussed, and wrote reactions and the moral of the story. In the New Testaments, we learned about the life of Jesus and His Apostles. We have learned from Jesus and His Apostles to love one another, respect each other, be strong in our faith, and to love God with all our hearts and mind.

The first theme of our Reading Text is about Nature Fury. We learned about natural disasters like lighting, earthquakes, hurricanes, volcanoes, tornadoes and storms.
Studying all the kinds of natural calamities, we learned to prepare ourselves when natural disasters come. After learning the concept of each topic, Sister Esther always checks our understanding of the lesson by asking questions and by giving us a written test. Sometimes, we work in pairs in doing class work especially in Reading. Reading in fifth grade is fun and very enriching.

On my summer vacation, I stayed at my house most of the time. I went out a few times with my family to eat at the restaurant. Several times, I went shopping and watched movies like Harry Potter, Karate Kid, and Kubo. My summer vacation was filled with relaxation and fun. I can’t wait for the next summer vacation.
Last summer, I went to Disneyland and Universal Studios. It was a long drive going there but it was worthwhile. We enjoyed the sceneries along the way and had enjoyed our stay in Disneyland and Universal Studios.

There, I bought a lot of chocolate at the Macadamia Nut Factory. I made a Hawaiian bracelet with pink turtles and yellow flowers. I also went to an NBA basketball camp. I had a great time there. My vacation was a blast!
