    I hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Day weekend.  Please make sure you are checking your child’s binder each night.  Important school information as well as graded papers go home daily. Grades are entered several times a week, so please check your child’s PowerSchool account. 

     

    Please start sending in laptop chargers this week.  Laptops will remain in the classroom so they can be charged for next week’s EOG’s. 

     

    We will have an end of the year party on the last day of school.  I would like to do the same thing I did for the Christmas party – collect $5 from each student and purchase pizzas, drinks, and something sweet.  Please send in money by Wednesday, June 5th, so I can begin purchasing items. 

     

    Please take a few minutes to review what is happening in the forest.  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: Review, Review, Review.  We are working hard to review all content taught this year in order to prepare students for the Math EOG.  Please ensure that your child is completing math homework every night.  Homework counts as a grade and should have work shown for each problem to avoid a deduction of 10 points. 

    ELA (Reading/Writing/Word Study): This week, we will continue reading Treasure Island.  Students will identify key details in the chapter and demonstrate understanding of figurative language in the story; summarize significant events that occur in the chapter and distinguish between trustworthy and untrustworthy characters; and summarize significant events that transpire during the chapter and make inferences about relationships between characters using evidence from the text.

    We will continue with our chapter book – Mr. Popper’s Penguins.  Please ensure your child is completing their questions each night.  Homework requires that all responses be answered in complete sentences to avoid a loss of 10 points. 

    Science: We are continuing with our unit on plant and animal adaptations.  Students will understand the effects of environmental changes, adaptations and behaviors that enable plants and animals to survive in changing habitats.
