It’s the End of the School Year

It has been an amazing year in fifth grade. Tomorrow is our last day of school before we become sixth graders.

We’ve taken pictures and video every day of the school year in our class to document our learning. Would you believe we have taken 1,349 images in just this school year?! This video was auto-created using just one-tenth of the pictures on Mrs. Hamman’s phone!

You can see more images from our year on our private Instagram, @hammanclass.
