Welcome to room 409, Mr. Krump’s class! How are you feeling about fifth grade so far? Pick a word or two or come up with your own. Explain why you feel this way.
Overwhelmed, Confident, Excited, Ansy, Anxious, Bored, Ready…
Example: I’m excited! I love to teach. Do you love to learn? It’s so incredible to be a teacher and have a new group of young people to work with every year. Every year is different. I love it!
This is a picture of Earth taken from the Voyager spacecraft just before it left our solar system. Voyager took 65 pictures to make this panoramic shot. It was many millions of miles away from Earth.
The picture has been called “The Pale Blue Dot”.
Can you see “us”? What is your reaction?
