Hey Grade 5 Team!!

Welcome to Our New Wiki!

This wiki is designed to share resources generated by the LC 5th Grade team for purposes of planning lessons. It also serves as a venue for documenting our year together, so that we have a virtual "paper trail" and can use this to help refine and revise for next year, and the years after...

Let's use this wiki to share units and resources, ideas, etc....
What is a wiki?? Wiki is a piece of server software that allows users to freely create and edit web page content using any web browser. Wiki supports hyperlinks and has a simple text syntax for creating new pages and crosslinks between pages on the fly. Wiki, in the Hawaiian-language, means fast. The most commonly recognized and utilized wiki is wikipedia.org, a "multilingual, web-based, free content encyclopedia project. Wikipedia is written collaboratively by volunteers from all around the world. The articles can be edited by anyone with access to the Internet, simply by clicking the "edit this page" link. (Source: Dr. Adamy, Using Wikis in the K-16 Classroom, RITER Project Technology Conference, September 2007) If you are not familiar with wikis, this quick guide is very helpful!
