Exeter-Milligan Fifth Grade Classroom

The Exeter-Milligan Fifth Grade class performed a play about the Revolutionary War for their parents on Thursday, March 19th.  They are pictured with some of the props they made for the play.  At the boat Katelyn Babula and Madison Luzum, and middle row from the left are Christopher Kelch, Kole Svec, Wesley Ronne, Peyton Pribyl, Ben Bartu, Braden Capek, Alec Schlueter, Becca Krupicka, Cameran Jansky.  Back row from the left are Kiah Songster, Emma Olsen, Briana Capek and Casey Underwood.

Exeter-Milligan’s fifth grade class has been learning through action this year.  They recently finished one of their larger projects, a Revolutionary War play. 

The students did an excellent job on the project and first year teacher Miss Sara Lincoln was very pleased with the results, “I enjoy how hard this group works.  Anytime I ask for their best they go above and beyond.  I have come to know that when I ask them to do something, such as a project, they will exceed my expectations.  I also enjoy how happy each student is and how much they seem to enjoy school.  They are truly a great class!"
Each day Lincoln’s class starts about the same as the students add their points to an app called Class Dojo, call local senior citizens for the Tele-Care program and say the Pledge of Allegiance.

Their mornings are spent in read, spelling and math before they have a recess and then eat lunch.  In the afternoon the students have social studies, writing or science and their “specials” which include music, keyboarding, library and p.e.  They always end they day by talking about the things they need to remember for the next day at school.

Soon the class will be starting their science projects relating to energy.  Lincoln plans to guide the students in performing several simple experiments in their chapter on energy.

Lincoln has found this first year of teaching very rewarding, “ This group of students is unique because they find a friend in each person in their class. Each group project we have done, they act as if their group is their best friend.  Which for many of them is probably true.  They are such a likeable group of kids and always happy and ready to help.  This group is always ready to achieve their best and eager to do better the next time.  They have been an absolute joy to teach my first year.”

The fifth grade has more fun events to look forward to in the rest of the year including a field trip, some science projects and field day.
