Just a reminder that there is no school on Friday. I will be touring the Chicago Water Filtration Plant!! I am very excited and hope to make a field trip out of it-will let you know if that works out!!
Report card pick up in next Wednesday, April 6th-you can sign up for a conference inside the doors of the main entrance.
Thanks for the snacks all year-we are running very low…if you have not brought in any snacks in awhile, please do so…your children enjoy a mid-morning snack!!
Ray Festival is this Thursday evening!!! I need volunteers to help at our classroom booth!!! I will make a sign-up sheet in the room and ask your child if they would like to work!! I will need at least two volunteers per one hour shift-the kids can run the Bean Bag Toss game!! Please come and play-all money from our game goes back into our classroom for supplies!!
Language Arts: We are on Lesson 21-reading for accuracy and reviewing adjectives and adverbs. Please go over at home!! We will read together the story The World According to Humphrey starting tomorrow. We are also working in our Journeys workbooks. And, as always, we are starting off each morning, reading our AR book. I believe the last day for an AR test will be next Monday.
Homework: We have started to read the Young Authors stories that were due today. If your child did not turn their work in, it is due!! We will spend some time reading these and sharing our stories in our class and with our buddies over the next week or so.
Due Wednesday….your child will design and create a Festival poster. Your child should use as many Adjectives as they can think of in creating their poster that will be displayed somewhere in the school. The poster should be illustrated and bright!!! I will go over this with them this afternoon. I will also give them the paper to complete this project.
Math: We will complete lessons 7.6-7.8 this week. We are heavily into working with fractions!!!! It is a little challenging-please go over homework and extra practice at home if it is needed. Thanks for your help!!!
Homework: Monday through Wednesday 7.6-7.8
Social Studies: We have moved on to reading about the Southeast!! We are also listening to tapes that go along with the chapters-they really seem to enjoy this.
Science: We have created Series and Parallel circuits -your children have learned much!!! They are understanding the basics of electricity!!! Under their groins…this will be the LAST week we will be working with circuits! They have been keeping notes in their science journal and recording what they have been learning!!
Art: No school Friday, but I will try and find some time to continue to work on our Spring Mural which we are “watching grow” outside our room.
