Curriculum Update April 30-May 4

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We definitely had a lot of rain. I was out on the rainy soccer fields all weekend in a tournament, as I know a few others were too.

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

Please also continue to 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.

The $1.50 for the science boards were due last Friday. If you haven't sent it in, please do so as soon as possible.
We will conclude science week on Monday. On Tuesday-Thursday, we will be taking MAPS from 12:00-1:30.

Rigby Reading
There will be no reading this week due to science week and MAP testing.

enVision Math
We will continue perimeter this week. The plan is to take the test on Thursday.

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.

The kids have been having a lot of fun with science week. They have either reviewed, or learned a new concept.  Later this week, we will continue our unit on ecosystems with Mrs. Vaughan's class.

We did not have writing last week. During Cougar Reading this week, we are going to continue to write about different forms of poetry. We are also begin the revision/editing process of our persuasive summer vacation writing.

Have a fantastic week!
