5.9-5.13

Hello everyone!

 

First I would like to thank you for all the wonderful gifts, cards, snacks, and crafts that the students gave me last week.  I loved it all and it was so nice of them (and you!) to take time out of your day to think of me.  I felt very appreciated : )

 

You will notice today that there is not a homework packet coming home.  We are trying to cut down on paper usage.  I talked with the kids this morning about how the word study homework expectations and test times will remain the same even though it’s not written down for them.  I’ll be sure to keep the agenda sentences updated with important dates, so keep checking those.

 

Content for the week:

Language arts: we’re starting to review grammar skills in preparation for the reading HATS test in a few weeks.  I will also be doing end of year PALS assessments to measure reading growth throughout the year.

 

Math: continuing our unit on measurement and introducing weight measurement.  We will do a unit test next week on Tuesday the 17th.

 

Science: continuing our unit on life cycles with plant life cycles.  Our test on animal life cycles, plant parts, and plant life cycles will be this Friday the 13th.

 

Field day is coming up on June 3rd, and you will find some information about it from Coach LeClair at the end of this email.

 

Thanks and have a great week!
