Hope everyone had a nice three day week end. And I hope that everyone received a calendar from your child that indicated all the events going on until the end of the year!!! You should have a calendar will all these activities!!!
Tomorrow is our walking field trip to the Japanese Gardens behind the Museum of Science of Industry. Your child should bring their lunch, maybe in an empty bag pack so that they can easily carry their lunch. They should also bring an extra water-it might be hot!!! We will leave Ray around 10:15-thanks to all the parents who have signed up to walk with us!!! It should be fun. We will then create some Spring Murals from our observations to have displayed at the Spring/Spanish Assembly!!! Speaking of the assembly, please remember that your children will be performing a Spanish Dance and playing the recorder!
Language Arts: We will move on to Lesson 29 this week. All the lessons in our end of year Journeys Magazine focus around nature, ecosystems and our world around us. Eveyone seems to be enjoying the stories and discussions! The story this week is titled Save Timber Woods-we will start this probably Thursday. Today we read about and discussed “Trash”, wich was still part of Lesson 28 that we did not get to last week. We will work in our workbooks, journal and writer’s notebooks and read from our AR stories.
Homework: They each has a Time Magazine. They have read the Tracking Space Trash article and we have discussed. They are each to write at least two paragraphs about at least three ways they think we could help reduce or “collect” Space Trash. They should use the article as a starting point. After they have written their paragraphs-at least two paragraphs, they should make an illustration about at least one of their ideas. This is due on Friday.
Math: We will have our Unit 9 Math Test on Thursday. We are reviewing today, and maybe will have some time tomorrow. Their Math Journal will go home tomorrow for review.
Tuesday-no math homework-only math journal review if your child took their book home (they had the option.) Wednesday-study for the unit test. Thursday- Unit 10 parent letter and lesson 10.1 homework.
Art: We will start to create Spring Murals for the Assembly on June 7th. We will also be working with clay, probably next week, as a follow up to our story A Single Shard. It was a beautiful story-hope you heard about it!
Social Studies: Midwest is being studied. What has your child told you??? We are reading about the past and present history of the Midwest.
Science: We are still learning about and watching our Button Quail and Mallard Ducks grow, eat and explore their environment. We will continue to plant and watch Spring bloom into action! Lots of discussion around recycling and being an active part of our community.
