Mrs Sherry Hughes 5th Grade ELA

Mrs. Hughes: 

Welcome to Fifth Grade ELA!

This will be an exciting year in fifth grade and I’m so happy to be a part of an amazing team of teachers. This year will be an adventure as we embark on a block schedule of teaching reading and writing as one class! It will be a great experience to work with you to develop your  passion for reading and writing.

In our classroom, I value your ideas, thoughts and actions.  You have unique talents and strengths, and I cannot wait for you to share them with me and your classmates.  You will bring so much to our class. I’m looking forward to learning more about you!

I have been part of the St John Fisher community for over 20 years! All four of my children (and my husband) have graduated from SJF. I feel  blessed  to work as well as live in a wonderful community.   It truly is a privilege to work in a faithful, inclusive and catholic community.  Go Falcons!

Game Board

Posted on May 24, 2019

After you select your science fiction or fantasy book, try to visualize making a game, which incorporates parts of the book. Use the following guidelines when you create your board game:

  1. Use the characters in your book as “the pieces” of the game. You must have at least two game pieces.

  2. Use the setting of the book as the game board. Remember that color can make all the difference. Use a lot of color and keep in mind that you want your game board to be neat and well organized. Your game board must be made out of poster board or of some other material that is thicker than construction paper. Your game board must be at least 18 inches high, as well as 18 inches wide. If you are planning to make your game board a special shape, be sure that your board would fit the 18” x 18” measurement if it were in a square.

  3. Use the plot of the book as the moves of the game. These plot moves will give players information about the story as they play your game. You must include at least 25 moves in your game.

  4. Write clear, concise instructions, explaining how to play the game. Your directions must be written out in a creative way. In other words, do not simply write the directions on a piece of binder paper. Think of a neat way to tie the directions into your game.

Your grade for this project will be based on the clarity of your instructions, the appearance of the game board, the creativity of the game, and the entertainment potential of your game, as well as on how well you followed instructions and included the required criteria. In addition, your game MUST reflect the content of your book
