Wow! Only six weeks left to the school year. We have a lot to accomplish in a short amount of time. This week the kids will take the MSTEP. We will be testing from 9:00 to Noon on Tuesday and Thursday of this week. Pleases make sure your child is well rested, has a good breakfast with protein, brings two snacks and a water bottle for test days.
Your child should have brought home a note about our field trip to Meijer Garden on May 28. Please send in your child’s $2.00 by this Friday as well as the note indicating whether you would like to be in the drawing for parents that would like to join us a chaperone. Unfortunately, we can only select four parents for the trip to Meijer Garden, but if you are not chosen for that part of the trip, you are still welcome to join us at Hagar Park for lunch and play time if the weather permits.
Math: We will finish up our fraction unit this week and test the first of next week. We will 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: Many of the kids are just about ready to start their final drafts for their biography, but still others are a bit behind. I will be checking in with all of them this week to see if they will need to finish them up at home.
Social Studies: Our government unit will conclude with learning about citizens individual rights and responsibilities. Look for a study guide to come home for our Government final test.
Reading: We are working our way through the book The Jacket identifying the social issue, and answering comprehension questions about the text.
