Well, we made it through M-STEP. The kids all worked so hard. I am so proud of all of them. On to the final 5-week push to the end.
Thank you for sending in your child’s field trip money and for the tremendous response of volunteers. I wish we could take you all along, but I had to draw only four names to attend Meijer garden with us. All may join us at Hagar Park for lunch if the weather cooperates.
Math: We will test on unit 7 on Wednesday and then go back to unit 5, which we skipped earlier. This unit will involve solving one and two step word problems with all four operations.
Writing: The plan is to finish our biographies this week. If your child is behind in his/her writing it will be coming home for them to finish up. We have been working hard researching a person in history and then writing about what we learned about them and now it is time to move onto our final unit. This unit will be asking the kids to take a stand on a public issue.
Biography Museum: A note went home last week about our upcoming museum. This event is looked forward to all year and always well loved by the kids. Please help your child be prepared for our museum which will be held on Tuesday, June 4 from 1:30 – 2:15.
Spelling: Your child should have brought home his/her spelling words on Friday. This weeks words(Week 24) focus on adding the suffixes y, al, able, and ible
The list is posted below.
Social Studies: The kids were very interested in the judicial branch and what goes on in the courtroom. So, we will be holding a mock courtroom trial this week called the “Case of the Missing Puppy”.
Reading: We are just about finished reading The Jacket. It has been so fun reading aloud as a class to see the wonderful growth the kids have made with their reading this year.
