Curriculum Update April 23-27

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. It was definitely cooler, but nice for the sun to still be out.

Please continue to send in reading logs. We earn a paw for every 500 minutes read. They are due every Tuesday.

Please also keep track of the Olympic, Go for the Gold logs. Your child should have brought them home last week. By training for the the olympics at home, your child will help our class. You cross out a gold medal for every 10 minutes of exercise. For every 60 minutes, there needs to be a parent signature. Each completed log is worth 3 gold medals.

Thank you for following the due dates for the science fair with the topic and purpose. On Wednesday, April 25, the educated guess and problem statement are due.

Please remember $1.50 is due by Friday for the science fair boards.

Rigby Reading
There will be no reading this week due to science week taking its place during that time.

enVision Math
We have completed Topic 10, fractions. We will review and take the test on Wednesday. On Thursday, we will begin Topic 13, understanding perimeter.

We have completed spelling tests for the school year. With science week next week, followed by MAP testing the following week, there would be no spelling. Since the kids will be taking so many tests, I want them to have a break for the year. Great job this year with spelling. I really saw a lot of improvement in learning the prefix and suffix meanings of words.

We finished matter last week and began ecosystems. The kids learned about all the different types of biomes and created a mural. It will be completed this week. Next week, we will be working on ecosystem projects with Mrs. Vaughan's class.

The kids did an experiment with food coloring and salt water. They were able to see the separation formed between the two liquid forms.

We are still continuing to learn and write about different forms of poetry. We are also in the revision/editing process of our persuasive summer vacation writing.

Have a fantastic week!
