Good Afternoon Parents,
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! We are now down to the last 10 days of school. Please make sure that your child is at present for the next 10 days. We are in EOG review/prep mode and it is extremely important that your child is at school for this review.
All laptop chargers need to be sent in by Friday, May 21st. I will need to charge laptops prior to EOG’s on Tuesday, May 25th.
Our end of the year pizza party is scheduled for Friday, May 28th. Since we are not accepting outside food of any kind, I am asking for a donation of $5 to purchase pizza, drinks, and other party items. If you are able to donate, please send in money with your child by Friday, May 21st so I can get pizzas ordered and purchase drinks, etc.
Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Have a fantastic week 😊.
Below is what we are learning this week:
Math: On Friday, we started elapsed time. Students will have a quiz on Wednesday. On Thursday, students will have a test on the geometry vocabulary in their math journals. Please make sure they are studying these terms.
Reading: We are reviewing all concepts learned this year in preparation for the EOG. This week we will review author’s purpose; how characters change in a story; compare/contrast different texts; theme; and alliteration. We are continuing with our chapter book Bridge to Terabithia. Please remember that chapter book questions are assigned for homework each night and MUST BE ANSWERED IN A COMPLETE SENTENCE to avoid losing 10 points.
Science: This week, we will continue with our unit on ecosystems and biomes. We will focus on a specific biome each day – Grasslands and the Desert. We will also learn what it means to be an abiotic and biotic ecosystem.
Writing: This week, students will finish writing their personal narratives.
Important Upcoming Class/School Happenings:
- End of Grade Testing (EOG’s) are scheduled for Tuesday, May 25th (Reading) AND Thursday, May 27th (Math). YOUR CHILD NEEDS TO BE PRESENT AND ON TIME FOR EOG’S. ONCE TESTING BEGINS, YOUR CHILD WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO ENTER THE CLASSROOM.
- Last Day of School – Friday, May 28th.
