Good Morning!!! Your children stayed focused during their ISAT testing and tried to do their best!!! What more can we ask? Thanks for all your support and help!!! I hope you have heard, “The strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.” I couldn’t do it without you!!!
And, speaking of that…Festival is this Thursday evening!!! From 5:30-8:30 our class will be running a “Bean Bag Toss” game. I need parents to help run it!!! I have about 5 or 6 students signed up, but need more!! Please see if your child can work an hour. I also need three parents, one per hour to help monitor the booth and work with the kids. I will be selling Logo all night, right next to our booth-so I will be there. Please write a note in the passport or let me know what shift you can work!! :30-6:30, 6:30-7:30 or 7:30-8:30. Thanks!
Language Arts/Social Studies: With the ISAT’s over the last few weeks, our social studies has taken the back seat. So, this week for language arts, we will be reading and working in our Social Studies Books. We will probably get through the Northeast and complete all that we missed in that region. We have also started to discuss the Southeast Region of our country, and might continue with that by the end of the week. We will be reading, working in the workbook and doing some map making all week!!
Math: Unit 7 has been completed, but didn’t want to add one more test to the testing that was already going on. We will review, once again, today. We have gone over the information in this unit many times. I will give the test tomorrow. They will take home their Math Journal 2 tonight for review. The test is on Fractions and their Uses and Chance and Probability. There is also 2-digit multiplication and a few division problems on the test. Again, we will review today in class.
Homework: Tonight, study for the test. Tuesday and Wednesday- Lessons 8.1 and 8.2 No homework Thursday because of Ray Festival!!!
Science: We are growing plants in our room and your children seem really excited about watching the plants sprout and grow!!! We will continue to grow more plants and even grow our own snacks (we will sprout some seeds to eat) after spring break!!!
Here’s wishing you a nice week and a happy Spring Break!!!
P.S. Again, please let me know if you can work this Thursday Evening for Festival at our Booth!!! We will be located first floor, right across from room 102. Many thanks!
