Week of 6/3-6/7

This week we continued our countdown of fun! We started Monday with reading with our book buddies on the courtyard lawn.

Though, by far most exciting event was MARKET DAY!!!!!! I cannot even begin to say how proud I am of the class (and really the grade level). Their creativity and determination was OUTSTANDING! Congratulations to all for a great day!

Week of 5/27-5/31

Though this was only a 4 day week it seemed longer! We worked SO hard on our Market Day posters and presentations for STEAM night. We ended the week with a very fun and exciting field day! We did so well in all of the class competitions. I know the class is anxious to hear if we won, but I think we are all winners because of our amazing sportsmanship!

I cannot wait until next week to see how the class does at Market Day on Wednesday. Stay tuned for pictures!

Week of 5/20-5/24

This week we took our final SOL test!!!! I am BEYOND PROUD of these students and their hard work, dedication, focus, and drive to do their best! As something fun to end the year we are “ending the year with a BANG!”!! I will show you more fun activities in the upcoming weeks!

Week of 5/13-5/17

This week the students worked SO hard to review for the math SOL next Monday and Tuesday. We reviewed all we have learned this year and it was so much work! I am so proud of their focus and determination! We even played a little game called Trashketball. It was so fun, we will be playing it again before the year ends!

Next week we are going to be starting something VERY exciting!!!! I cannot wait to surprise the class! Stay tuned…

Week of 4/29-5/3

We are in a countdown until our Reading SOL next week. This week we did a lot of review of comprehension and word analysis skills. We also finished our math unit and that was officially the last math unit we had to learn! I cannot believe we have made it to that point in the year, it is always so bittersweet!

Next week:

Reading: continue the content review, SOL tests Wednesday and Thursday

Math: yearly content review

Social Studies: finish famous Americans (test Friday)

Week of 4/15-4/19

This week the students took their final MAPS tests. We talked about meeting our goals and even making growth in the right direction. I was very pleased with them and working hard to be successful! We also dug into poetry this week and are starting to explore more with that. Before we know it the students will be able to start writing their own…but more on that soon ;).

Next week:

reading: more poetry

math: finishing geometry and moving into polygons

science: finishing matter (vocab quiz Wednesday, unit test Friday)

Week of 4/8-4/12

The students jumped right back into work this week after returning from Spring Break. They did it without missing a beat! We ended the week with Career Day and the students learned about multiple careers that they could look into or strive to become when they grow up. Talk to you child about what they learned today.

Next week:

MAPS Monday and Tuesday

reading: comprehension of poetry

math: lines, angles, rays, points, line segments

science: matter

Week of 3/25-3/29

This week we completed one of my favorite activities to do; we compared/contrasted the Wonder movie and book. Look at our venn diagram!

When we get back from break we will be writing to persuade others to either read the book or watch the movie- whichever was your child’s favorite.

Also, today we took a class trip to the library to stock up on books for break. READ, READ, READ!!!!

I hope you all have a wonderful Spring Break!!
